Hiking Newcastle Beach Nature Trail

This park is located on the shore of Lake Washington and offers visitors a mix of scenery to explore. The loop trail starts from the parking area and winds through a forest full of native plants. Sections of boardwalk link the soft surface trail through wetlands.

The loop is a neat 0.2 mile but, if you want to extend your walk, another trail takes off from the parking area and heads out to the beach. There is ample parking and restrooms available at the park.
