The Metro bus stop for the ‘C-Line’ is the SW Rose Street stop. We will gather at the south end of this parking lot, and start our walk at 9:00 a.m. Our first stop will be the restrooms just 2 minutes in to the walk. In Lincoln Park we will walk down to the beach and come back up the trail that runs behind Colman Pool. We will continue along the bluff trail and exit the north end of the park, where we will cross Fauntleroy Way over to the P-patch. From this point its all up hill to Solstice Park, through the Orchard Street Ravine, and up to the Myrtle View Point. We will take a quick break here for a short rest and a snack. There are concrete markers that list the heights of various hills in Seattle. On our return, we will walk city streets as we head to the Thistle Steps (367 steps down) and the parking lot is just a block from the end of the steps.
