This two mile trail to the Puget Sound is amazingly beautiful. If you want to do some running on the dirt trails that connect to the main paved bike trail, knock yourself out. There are plenty that spiral all along the lush forest with ferns...More

The City of Des Moines, WA has an excellent trail system. The paved walkway / bike path is 2-miles long and follow the creek. There are benches along the route that allow a calm place to rest, if needed.

This is a great place to walk the dog. It's a total of four miles without cars or houses. The trail goes from the beach (a bit crowded) along a little river (quiet) to a parking lot at the other end 2 miles away.

Fun little hike along creek right in the middle of urban Seattle area. Gentle slope up from the Puget Sound where you are not conscious of the urban area around you.

Nice, paved trail that runs from the Des Moines beach park to S 200th and back. Gentle grade heading north. A few rest stops along the way

It is always difficult for international visitors deciding how to spend a couple of hours prior to returning their rental car and flying home. This was a great option particularly as you can pass a cheapish Safeway gas station on the way to the car...More

A great location for a run! I headed out from my hotel before sunrise and was on the trail when it was just light enough to see. The trail was quiet at that time with only a few walkers and fellow runners out and about....More

This is a beautiful shaded walk along Des Moines Creek. It is two miles each way out and back with quarter mile markings and the slightest of grades. There is a free car park at the SeaTac end. If one departs from that end, the...More

This is a great area to explore if you are looking for a relatively out of the way spot from Seattle. The Des Moines marina, beach park and trail are a super place to take a walk, especially with your dog, go for a run...More
