5:00 at Alki Starbucks 2742 Alki Ave

Hike will actually be about 7 miles/800' gain and we estimate 2.5 hours to complete. An easy hike that will give you the opportunity to experience fantastic views of Puget Sound, the Olympics and Seattle skylines. From Starbucks we will hike through Schmitz Park, over the top of Mee Kwa Mooks Park and then descend to the sound. We will continue along Constellation Park before turning at Alki Point Lighthouse. Will head up Bonair and Sunset Avenues and then down to Alki Beach Park to view the beautiful Seattle evening skyline. One can shorten the trip by deleting the final loop up Bonair if desired.
