Great walk for a sunny day. The hill is a good work out and the views are great. Nice walking through the neighborhood streets also. Plenty of good restaurants to go to afterwards for lunch or dinner.

Great walk overlooking some of the most beautiful views in Seattle. Starting from Kerry Park's one-of-a-kind legendary view of downtown and the Space Needle, to the overlook on 5th Ave with amazing views of Lake Union and UW. There are sections of the hike that are pretty steep - Queen Anne in particular as well as several sets of stairs - but that's a benefit in my book. Overall, a great hike, a great workout and a great way to take in a panoramic view of the Emerald City.
