    One of the best places for a trail run, hike, or a bike ride then head off to the North Beach Trail for a swim..

    Walk the coast.

  • Jason S.

    Walk the loop! It's got great views. If you don't have a dog with you, head downtown one of the beaches - it's gorgeous, and the trip adds about 30 flights of stairs to your excursion.

    Walk on the beach and explore the shoreline at low tide: sea anemones, shells, driftwood, shore birds.

    Although it can get pretty chilly, this park is rarely over-crowded and perfect for a romantic date!

    A must see when in Seattle. Do the Loop Trail.

  • Timbuk2

    Get lost and find your way back. Head out during low tide and explore the beach. If in season, salmon berries are delish (if you like it tart + sour).

    Timbuk2 · May 9, 2013
  • Jay T.

    Watch for sea otters!

    Jay Thompson · March 2, 2013

    We dare you to take the best possible picture of yourself with the Olympic Mountain behind you in the background, then find the closest active sand dune and try to build a sand castle. · November 13, 2012
  • Christy N.

    The loop trail is hands down my favorite hike!

    Christy N. · September 20, 2012
  • Sam G.

    The coolest park in Seattle. Watch the sunset over the Olympics. Take a 3-mile loop hike that feels like you're in the rainforest. Head to the beach and lighthouse if you have time.

    Sam Grossberg · September 18, 2012
  • K F.

    Sea otters hang out in the rocks along the north beach trail. If you're lucky, you might see them!

    Little known fact about this park: During WWII it housed Italian prisoners of war. There was a controversial riot between African American prison guards and the Italian POWs.

    Keep your eye out for bald eagles on the south beach trail. They like to hang out in the wooded area overlooking the sound.

    In the summer, sit on a bluff and watch as all the cruise ships leave for Alaska between between 4 and 6pm
