There are restrooms and water fountains at the trail head.
Just a walk in the park, a nice leisurely walk in the park with a couple friends. It was great time to get outdoors and catch up without worrying about needing to catch our breath. The path was in use by walkers, joggers and bikers and we saw evidence of recent horses. We stopped to talk to some women about their dogs, two whippets and a poodle.

This barely counts as a hike. In fact I don't think it really counts due to being paved, but it'd be perfect for absolute hiking beginners who are looking to start getting in shape by walking. The scenery was nice, the path runs along a the Burnt Bridge Creek and is wooded on both sides. This would be a great path for walking after work or other times when you don't want to spend an hour in the car just getting to the trail. It is super easy, maybe even wheelchair accessible if you start out on Alki Rd (although I'm not certain there is parking there, please double check if you need that access).
