Seward Park


Day Hike - Seward Park

The Lake Washington shoreline with its string of unique parks is the star of this walk. This hike explores Beer Sheva, Pritchard Island Beach, Martha Washington, Stan Sayers and Genessee Parks (source: Seattle Walks, Hike 15, Rainier Beach to Columbia City, 5.5 miles). An optional ~3.5 miles takes us back to the TH south down Rainier Avenue through a series of culturally rich, new and old neighborhoods. Buddhist Temples, taquerias, African American style shops, Thai restaurants, a high end bakery...what a feast for the eyes. One way hikers may return by bus.
