Lincoln Park


Day Hike - Lincoln Park

We combine Seattle Stairway Walks #16 & #17 to explore Fautelroy, Morgan Junction & Solstice Park. Sunset views are likely as we dip into Lincoln and Lowman Beach Parks.

  • Easy/Moderate
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 4.1 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 700 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 374 ft
  • Pace: 2.0 mph

We'll meet about 5:50pm outside Cafe Ladro on 7011 California Ave SW, just north of SW Myrtle St in West Seattle.  On street parking or Metro #22.  Plan to start walking at 6pm.

Yes, we have ~500 stairs to navigate but Thistle Stairs are 367 steps down.  The visit to Solstice Park -- with sweeping views west -- also provides a walk through a grand P-Patch community garden.
