December GoWalk! Urban Walks: 2 to 5 miles, 200 to 450 feet of elevation gain - Union Bay Natural Area

GoWalk! December L2 Urban Walks are low-stress activities to help you determine where you are in terms of gear, the pace (1.5 - 2 mph) and distance you can complete comfortably, and what your season goals for conditioning and walking are, so that you can determine what level of walks and pace would be the best fit for you to sign up for - no pressure, no judgment!

  • Easy
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 4.1 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 400 ft
  • Pace: 1.5 to 2.0 mph

Meet shortly before 10am geared up and ready to walk in front of the Elizabeth Miller Library, 3501 NE 41st St, Seattle. The restroom at the library is usually open, and there is parking available in the neighborhood. However, this is a one-way walk to Green Lake, so consider using public transit. The 32, 65, and 75 all pass nearby, and the link stops at Husky Stadium (University of Washington), a pleasant one mile walk away.

Participation in 1 Urban Walk per month is required for all GoWalk! participants.

L2 urban walks will be offered in December and will open for registration on the first  Friday,  November 3 at 12:00 pm. Participants are encouraged to register for a second urban walk Friday, November 10 at 12:00 pm

This walk explores Yesler and Ravenna Creeks, walking through the former town of Yesler, and the neighborhoods of Bryant and Ravenna, ending at the Green Lake Community Center. We can then take the 45 back to CUH.
