Trails Views


Slow down, or you'll miss this combined outlook-boulevard-picnic park at Hillside Drive, just where Lake Washington Boulevard E. begins its switch back filled descent to Lake Washington. The lookout is planted with peonies backed by a stone wall, and has a good view of the lake and the Cascades. Just to the right of the lookout, a trail leads down to meet the next boulevard loop beneath a magnificent coastal redwood tree.

The park proper, a grassy bowl enclosed by woods and brush, is bounded by Dorffel Drive, which curves off and up to the right at a three-way intersection, just before the boulevard heads downward. This is a fine, quiet place for a family picnic beneath a cedar or maple tree. The park continues on down with the boulevard to McGilvra Boulevard.
