After work mid-week hike at St Edwards

This is the return of the mid-week hiking series at St. Edwards State Park. We'll meet every Thursday, and start the hike at 6:00 PM.  The usual hike is 2 miles RT and takes about an hour.  Great scenery, including a nice span along Lake Washington. (The Park has a number of trails that can be added to extend the hike.)

Elevation drop/gain is ~ 500'.

A moderate 2 mph hike.

For a map of the park:

Bring water, hiking poles (optional); wear comfy cloths and hiking shoes/boots (waterproof is best); and bug spray during the summer time.  For a great Pacific NW Hiking Tip: cotton cloths are great for the tropics but don't work too well when hiking in this climate.

Discover Pass is required. You can get a day pass at the Park for $10, or for $30 (plus tax) you can get a pass that covers ALL of WA State Parks for an entire year. You can also pick up a pass at Fred Meyers, and online of course.

Dogs are fine, but must be kept on a leash and under control, and please bring the doggie bags to clean up after any souvenirs left by your loved one on 4 feet.

Check out the map of the Park that is in the link above. After turning off of Juanita Drive into the Park, keep to your right. Go through the parking lot that is to the right of Bastyr University, then go past the small "Storage sheds", and drive into the circular parking lot just beyond. The Park's sign/Bulletin Board is our meeting spot.  Get there a few minutes early since we will hit the trail at 6PM.

    Hey Keith, yes there are so many trails, easy to miss other people. I would have enjoyed your company also. : ) I was on trails I hadn't been on before. The day turned out the way it was meant to. I look forward to hiking with you and other people I missed yesterday. If I had at least one person's cell number, I could have connected. I don't use the internet on my flip phone. : )

    Hi Eli, I was there at St Edwards Park tonight. I unfortunately couldn't find you all. I parked at QFC and walked to Bastyr. Sorry to miss you, however I hiked by myself and enjoyed the wonderful scenery. Thank you for hosting Eli! Catch you next time. : )

    Since it has started raining I am a big maybe, and if it keeps up I will bow out until next time.
