I was in Seattle solo for a few days and headed to Discovery Park one afternoon. Due to COVID-19, the main parking lots throughout the park were closed, although the park itself was open to visitors. I didn’t have too much trouble finding street parking nearby. I really enjoyed my time in the park on a weekday afternoon. It was quiet enough for me to be solo for much of the time (which was nice for contemplation) but had enough other visitors to feel completely safe. Kudos to Seattle’s public who were mindful about wearing masks when you passed within 6 feet, even in the middle of the forest! There are a variety of hiking paths and they were relatively well-signed. I did the loop trail, which offers a nice range of scenery, from coastal views to interior forests. The trail was well-groomed and not difficult; I was able to maintain a fairly quick pace. I also did the north and south beach trails; they were of moderate difficulty, with some sections of stairs, etc. The coastal views on these hikes were stunning!; you see the beach from both above and on the water. Fantastic photography opportunities along the way and so relaxing to be near the water, seeing the sailboats and listening to the waves. Such an urban oasis, and yet only a 10-minute drive from the hotels in downtown Seattle! Highly recommended for half of a day—wonderful to be in nature, getting a little exercise, and getting a sense of the beauty the region has to offer while still being in the middle of a great city.

There is really something for everyone within this huge park. We spent hours walking the different trails. Most people wear a mask and stay far apart. The beach was a nice bonus. We even saw a bald eagle! There’s also plenty of space on sand or land to lay out a blanket and relax. It’s a walkable, lush park with so much to offer. I recommend making a day of it.

It was great to spend an afternoon on these diverse trails. We were out for several hours and walked through the shady woods, as well as along the sunny shore. Many areas were paved so it's not a difficult walk but very pretty. You can make it as long or as short as you like.

There's really so much to love about this park! Since we were exploring other things around the city we didn't have near as much time here as we would have liked. The lighthouse is fantastic! The mountains in the background, especially the tall peak is gorgeous! There was a seaplane flying overhead. There were big ships in the water. The beach had driftwood on it. It was not super crowded, but there were some walkers, runners, and bikers. There were benches along the walking/jogging path and informational signs. We saw a Maserati, not something you see every day in Ohio. I'd definitely return if in the area making sure I had more time, and I'd recommend others visiting as well!
