Chesiahud Trail - Walk Around Lake Union

A few of us did this last year and we want to do it again.  Anybody else up for joining us.

It is a 6 mile walk around Lake Union.  We pass by pocket parks, industrial areas, marinas, houseboats and more.  Bud, our senior corgi member, made it the whole way and is up for trying again this year.

Please come prepared for the weather with proper clothing and footwear.  Stormy weather, dangerous road conditions, or illness may cancel or postpone this walk so be sure to check this site before leaving to attend.  I will email the night before with last minute details.

 

Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop

The City and the Seattle Parks Foundation created a multi-use loop around Lake Union. The vision is to invite community use and enjoyment of Lake Union; providing a loop that connects people to open space – connecting us to new and existing lakefront parks, celebrating the lake’s historic working waterfront, and revealing the unique character and quality of the lake itself.

The loop creates safe and attractive access to the lake for all Seattlites - connecting Gasworks and Lake Union Parks, linking more than 35 pocket parks, street ends and waterways that ring the lake, and improving access from adjacent neighborhoods, downtown, and the University of Washington.

By connecting existing parks and improving access to the lake, this loop provides a continuous network of open spaces that are ideal for a range of active and passive recreation, from boating, bicycling and walking, to family picnics and quiet contemplation. This loop celebrates the rich and varied history of Lake Union and its ties to Seattle’s maritime and industrial past, present and future.

At the geographic and historic heart of Seattle, the loop enhances the vitality and livability of neighborhoods surrounding the lake, the City, and the Seattle region. Parts of a lakefront trail already exist—segments of the Burke Gilman Trail, Westlake Avenue and trails within Gasworks and Lake Union Park. But as a whole, Lake Union remains inaccessible and disconnected as a resource, both for the communities that surround it and the general public.

    Fun walk. Good to see some young corgis do the whole thing, even if they did need some assistance. There is such a variety of sights along the way and, of course, today our group was one of those sights for others. Hardly even noticed the drizzle that came and went and obstructed the mountain views today. Thanks for coming out on this adventure with me.

    Hi! I just discovered the idea of "Corgi meetups" about a week ago, and googled to see if there were any in the Seattle area and found one so close to the day I was looking! So excited! My husband and I will be there with our 4month Corgi, Jeff! :)

    Weather is looking decent for tomorrow so should be a good day for a walk. Meet at Gas Works Park in the parking lot. We will head up the Gas Works Kite hill to start and get a group photo (how many corgis fit on the top of that thing) so if you are late and don't see us in the parking lot head up the hill. It will probably take about 3 hours to complete the full lake loop so come with water and snacks for you and your dog if you plan to do the whole thing.

    This was a great meetup last year; if I'm well by Sunday, I'll be there.

    Unfortunately, Dewey is sick so we won't be able to make it. The vet isn't sure what he has, but we're thinking it's contagious since she has seen about 30 dogs in the last 2 weeks with all the same symptoms. We don't want anyone else getting sick!

    I have to make a trip to Oregon on Sunday. Sorry I'll miss you.

    Excited to see other corgis!

    This is a link to some of the sights we saw along the way last year.
    Just want to make sure everyone aware that this is not a walk around Green Lake. This is a six mile loop to completely walk around Lake Union. It is generally flat, but there are some stairs up to bridges to cross and then back down. You are walking in residential areas, industrial areas, through some parks, marinas, and shopping areas. Please be sure you are up to this and your dog is able to handle this. You can come and start and do part (just let us know when you decide to head back) or pair up with somebody and park one car at the south lake union area so you can walk from Gas Works (North End of lake Union) and do half. Lets hope we get the stellar weather we had last year.

    This looks like fun and hope that it will get repeated. We are picking up a new cardigan corgi puppy soon, so will wait until he's older and all shots to do group activities again. Will be excited to show him and Maple off.

    My fiance, John, and I are so excited to bring Dewey. We were just told about this group today by a Corgi mom we met in PetSmart and we can't wait to start getting together with other Corgi lovers!
