Saint Edward State Park Parking Area - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

This family-friendly park offers a number of activities, including a pleasant 3 mile loop down to the north shore of Lake Washington.

The 316-acre Saint Edward State Park, located in Kenmore on the north end of Lake Washington, accommodates hiking, mountain biking, boating, and picnicking. The park is named for the former seminary still standing on the property.

A number of trails connect to the water, including North Trail, which transitions to Beach Trail when approaching the lake. After spending some time at the beach, hike back through the forest along South Canyon Trail.

Overall rating: 

Great nature, close by.

I really love these short hikes. Beautiful trees, moss, ferns, lake... locally, without the need to drive hours to get there. A great loop is taking North Trail down to the lake and South Ridge to Plateau on the way back, almost exactly 3 miles, with some decent steeps on the way back.

Great Hike!

Starting to get into fitness and the outdoors...this was a great and relatively easy hike with a but of a grade going up and down to the lake. Worth it, snd will definitely return.

Great Park!

I consistently run here and every trail is great! Good range of difficultly as well.
