This route provides modest ups and downs, two marinas, two clothing optional beach parks, a Curt Cobain memorial bench, and three tunnels.  We'll chat about Olmsted Parks history and revel in the forest sections tucked into a busy and growing city. Multiple public toilets and treat options grace this section in our walk through six Seattle neighborhoods.
