Run The Green Lake Park Loop


    Added by Jill Kranz

    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.

    Great spot

    One of the little gems we have here!

    Nothin But Good Vibes

    Great spot for a jog, frisbee or pick-up basketball. Parking can be a problem. Don't be surprised if you have to park on the street up a block or so from the park.

    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.
