From the ferry, I assume you mean the Bainbridge/Bremerton ferries.
I rode from there back to the east side (along the BG Trail) after Chilly Hilly last year. My route may not be the easiest for hills, but it's quick.
Head up Spring St to Boyleston
then hang a left on Harvard up to E. Union.
Take a right on Union and follow it to 23rd.
Take a left on 23rd.
23rd jogs right at Turner Way coming down the Hill and becomes 24th. (Seamless transition. Trust me, you can't miss it unless you really try.)
24th becomes Montlake at the bottom of the hill, and goes across the bridge then through the U. District.
Winding through the U. District, it becomes (alternating
E Montlake Pl, Montlake Blvd, NE 45th St, finally becoming Sand Point Way, which will bring you right to Magnuson Park @ NE 65th.
