Hike to Lake Washington through Saint Edward State Park
Washington › Saint Edward State Park Parking Area
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.
