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 Colman 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 winds through a relatively unknown park, Fauntleroy Park.
