Trail shared by George DeRuyter

A beautiful city park that offers views of downtown Seattle and Mt. Rainier.

Description

This park is on a little peninsula on Lake Washington. It is a great wooded area with a paved trail surrounding the park as well as several trails going through the wooded areas. There are areas to swim, a great kids park, and lots of places to have a picnic. Many activities start here (such as runs, walks, bike rides) and there is an amphitheater as well so parking can sometimes be challenging. Given that, it is still one of the best places in the city for a run.

Ran along the lakeshore and around Seward Island. Definitely run the inner trails - easy to get lost but so beautiful tucked in the trees, and hilly! 7mi — 1h 00m

Looking south from the kid's playground, enjoy incredible views of Rainier on a summer day.

A nice sunny day, but with clouds, because this is Seattle.

It's easy to play on the north shore while enjoying the view of Seattle.
