Saint Edward State Park is a 316-acre (128 ha)-park in Kenmore, Washington and Kirkland, Washington. It is part of the Washington State Park System. Before becoming a Catholic seminary and later a state park, the area was logged in the 19th century and again in the 1920s. A series of trails runs through the park for bicyclists and hikers. The forest canopy is primarily made up of the Coast Douglas-fir, Western Redcedar, Bigleaf Maple, Pacific Madrone and Western Hemlock. Its dense carpet includes many varieties of fern (mainly Western Sword Fern), shrub and moss. It is flanked on the west by an undeveloped beach on Lake Washington. The park surrounds the Saint Thomas Center, which houses Bastyr University.PutSaint Edward State Park into our Kenmore trip itinerary maker app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
Saint Edward State Park reviews
My wife, son, and dog hiked with me here on a Sunday morning. The old monastery was still under renovation, but it looked beautiful from the outside. There was extra parking in the grass at the front.... more »
The former seminary under construction is an interesting sight. There are many trails, some steep. We took a half-mile gently sloping trail to the lake through the forest. The shade was nice... more »
Best park I've been to in Seattle. Bathrooms are clean. Trails are fun and varied in length and skill level. A couple different trails end up at a little beach area. There's plenty of tables to cook at. Lots of shaded parking all over. Just watch your step along the trails because slugs are trying to cross.
Really nice hiking and walking area. Very forested. Lots of mountain bikers as well. This is probably going to be one of my daily hikes whenever I'm up around here. I felt very centered and saw plenty of trails to explore. Wear good hiking/walking shoes. My feet kind of took a beating because I'm not too used to the landscape. But, was still a blast.
