Seattle Olmsted 70 (June 2024) walks complete the Seattle Olmsted 50 (October 2023) circuit to make a 120 km loop around Seattle parks and parkways. 
Section 9 takes us from Alki Point to the West Seattle Passenger Ferry (Seacrest dock).
June walks test the accuracy and utility of the seven new Turn by Turn directions before posting the public routes on the Mountaineers website in July.

The seven new sections replicate the format--about 6 miles, 500 to 900 feet elevation gain and rich in natural and cultural features.
