We have spent MANY hours on Lake Union and always have a great time! Living in the city it is very hard to feel like a true outdoorsman, but this is one place you can do it! Paddle around and enjoy the outdoors, but be sure to enjoy the sites of the city...
This is a great trail for beginners to try. The water only gets minimal waves when large speedboats pass by and hydroplanes landing or taking off. There are many sights that can be seen from the water like the Space Needle, The Clackamas soon to be museum/resteraunt, and the Duck (a boat car that can be rented and provides tours). So for beginners trying to get the rhythm of paddling together, this is the spot for you!
