Discovery Park Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Occupying 534 acres atop Seattle’s Magnolia Bluff, Discovery Park is Seattle’s largest. The first European ship to explore Puget Sound, Capt. George Vancouver’s sloop Discovery, was the park’s namesake.
Hikers will discover nearly 12 miles of trails meandering through forests, open meadows, sand dunes, and sea cliffs. The longest, at 2.8 miles, is the Loop Trail, offering sweeping views of Puget Sound, Alki Point, Vashon, Blakely, and Bainbridge Islands, and the Olympic Mountains."
