“Another great jogging option near downtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

This area is just south of downtown Bellevue. There are a several trails winding throughout, but if you stay to the perimeter it's easy to make a nice 5 mile loop. Don't miss the salmon ladder and associated educational placard near the northern edge. There's also a Nature Education Center on the route worth stopping in to see.

“Lovely trails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Walked the Bellefields Loop, which was a little less than 1 mile. Great scenery (lowland marsh and a little higher-elevation forest) and the trails are impeccably kept. Quite a few joggers out when I was there (around 5pm on a weekday). Great place for a business traveler to get away from the urban landscape of downtown Bellevue w/o traveling far. Wish I had had more time to walk the longer trails.
Only issue I had was finding the parking. The park is bounded by busy streets, and if you don't know where you're going you could miss the little turn-offs for trailhead parking. They did have bathroom facilities w/water fountain @ the parking lot.

“Nice outdoor nature park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Beautiful trails with extended walks available. The trails connect with other extended trail systems. This area did have a little debris along the way that could be better maintained, but all in all, a nice place to walk.

Trees, rivers, fields, birds, blueberries, such an easy walk and so relaxing. Definitely a good Sunday out.
