St. Edwards State Park offers more than 7 miles of meandering forest and waterfront trail, which can be combined to create a scenic and challenging workout. The trails traverse up and down the high bank of the waterfront, meeting fairly level connector trails at the shore and along the bluff. The park land has been logged, was privately owned for a time as a country home, and was then sold to the Archdiocese of Seattle, which ran St. Edwards and St. Thomas Seminary (now Bastyr University). Finally the land was sold to the state for a park.

The park offers a wonderful range of trails, with access to Big Finn park as well. The trails stay tacky to muddy ear round. Often, mountain bikers are found winding through the trails so keep your eyes open. A beautiful place for a city park.
