Located in clear view of the Space Needle and just 8 miles from downtown Seattle, Blake Island is nonetheless a remote destination that’s only accessible to those who can cross its moat of Puget Sound waters. Anyone making the journey, however, will be richly rewarded with the opportunity to explore the island’s history, wildlife, and natural setting. Blake Island State Park is so close to the city, yet so far away.

Easy 3 mile trail around the island. Lots of cross over trails labeled 'Red Trail' and 'Blue Trail'.
