Really nice way to escape the city in the city. Great for kids. For those who are scared of getting lost even if you make a wrong turn, the system is ringed by the Sound And paved roads, so you'll always quickly find your way.

Completed the light blue "Spine" trail as a party of 3 out of shape adults. There are really three marked trails, and it still remains easy to get turned around. Not a big deal as for the most part you will find another trail. We managed to not become lost, but did encounter some folks who had. Overall a nice trail with some good views to be had. We also encountered the kids smoking marijuana although it wasn't a school day. The beach area was busy but the trail was very lightly trafficked. We plan on returning.

I did the blue trail and got lost a few times because the squares were pointing In the wrong direction but you can really only get lost once, however the time of day that I went was not great as teenagers were just out of school and as we walked by made crude comments and we smelled a lot of pot. Go earlier in the day if possible

Swan Creek Park Trail

Hiked here for the first time last summer, never knew it was there and I drive by there frequently. Entrance for the bottom of the trail is off of Waller Road and Pioneer. Better signage out there now. There was some evidence of transients living there, at the bottom near the ponds. Trail is very narrow and the soft sandy ground in some spots is an area of a possible slip (I did). Frequent trail markers to indicate where you are on the trail and those trail markers usually mark a spot you can access the lower/upper trail, depending on which one you are on. Top of the trail is behind First Creek Middle School on Portland Ave and there is a mountain bike trail there also. Could do this hike daily.

Very nice trail as long as you can stay away from the bikes. A little muddy when you get down to the bottom still though.

Good local hike! The red route is moderately challenging and the trail very narrow. At points it is dificult to know which path to follow. The black route is very easy, but again the trail markers are unclear. New trail markers are being installed. The red route takes you down along the base of a ravin, very beautiful! Definitely a must to for locals!

Very short trail. Easily able to complete it twice during my lunch break. Good for beginners and that's about it.

Beautiful trail, longer than 3.6 miles if you do the entire loop. Gorgeous views of the Sound, lots of bird life and mature trees. Gem at the edge of the city.
