We hiked down to the lake via the easy path, then along the coast and up the North trail. It was quite a workout! There are a lot of trail runners in this park and folks with their dogs. It's a great place to hike, especially if you live in the area.


Fairly extensive system of trails down to shoreline and back. Some are used by cyclists, and some are off-limits to bikes. The forest is typical Pacific Northwest - tall trees of varied species, ferns, and other lush greenery. Small picnic area by the shore of Lake Washington. Park at trailhead is interesting. On the campus of the college there is a reflexology path next to an herb garden.
