Walk along the water and then up above on the bluff in Lincoln Park, enjoying views of the Sound, the Olympics, Vashon Island, and the ferries and other shipping. If you’re lucky, you might get a glimpse of a pod of Orcas. In the summer, you can watch swimmers enjoying the salt water in Coleman Pool out on the point. The 10K route goes on to two more parks – Fauntleroy Cove Park and Solstice Park. Solstice Park has panoramic views of the Sound. The 11K wanders through a relatively-unknown park, Fauntleroy Park.
This is a good walk to enjoy with a companion. The Bluff Trail is a quiet walk through the woods with great Sound views, but it can be a little lonely on weekdays in the winter.
