Hiking Saint Edward is always a nice destination for a chilly spring day.  I took my first hike in Washington State here about 25 years ago and have been back many, many times.  What continues to impress me about this park is its deep, wooded ravines, undeveloped Lake Washington shoreline, historical architecture, and the greatest kids playground that I have ever seen.

We will hike almost every trail in the park.  I will supply a map for you at the trailhead and send out additional information via email a few days before the hike.
