Meet in front of the Starbucks at 1200 Westlake Ave N at 5:30 PM.

This is the Starbucks in AGC building just north of Lake Union Park on the eastern shore of Lake Union. 

The planned walk is a 6.5 mile loop around Lake Union, via the Galer stairs, Dexter Avenue and the Cheshiahud loop. This route is slightly modified from the official Cheshiahud loop to avoid construction along Westlake Avenue North. 

Since this is an evening walk and there are some areas that are not well lit, please bring a headlamp or flashlight. 

I expect the walk will take less than 3 hours.
