Run The Green Lake Park Loop
Washington › Green Lake Park
Added by Boo Burgard
- An easy 2.8-mile run around the lake
- Convenient, flat, well-paved, and scenic
- Great bars and restaurants nearby to hit post-run
Looping around a freshwater lake surrounded by tranquil natural scenery, Green Lake Park trail is considered by many to be Seattle’s go-to running spot. I love it because it’s an urban run that doesn’t feel like one. It’s especially popular with beginning runners and the after-work/weekend crowd. With its set distance, it’s perfect for timed runs and interval training.
- Running gear
- Running shoes
- Cash for some post-run refreshments

A nice easy loop...
Convenient access in central North Seattle makes this a great spot for a short jog. While on your run enjoy excellent people watching, dog watching, and tranquil views of Green Lake. If you're able, the Discovery Park loop trail in Magnolia is a much nicer and well-groomed trail run with far superior scenery and less crowds.
A nice three mile loop around Greenlake. Get there early, get there late...doesn't really matter: it is a high traffic area and is always a bit crowded. A nice run though, and a place to enjoy the outdoors in the city.
run the outer loop to get a 5k
Classic lake run in Seattle. Upside - beautiful views, and other runners to pace you. Downside - dog watching! they can be a bit distracting :) Sunset runs around this lake + a crisp breeze make it a perfect fall run.
