    18927 72nd Ave W, Lynnwood, WA (map)

    47.825745 -122.330360

  • meet in parking lot
  • I have weekdays free for awhile so let's get out and explore during the day. Hiking boots and good trail shoes highly recommended.  Hiking poles may come in handy too.

    Meet for a weekly hike starting at Lynndale Park.  Each week we will add another park to our hike until we are doing 5 parks and 6 miles or so by our fifth week.  (SW county Park, Seaview Park, Sierra Park, Pine Ridge Park)

    Distance RT: 2.5- 6 miles miles, should take about an hour and up to 2 hours by our fifth week.

    Lynndale Park

     is located north of Lynndale Elementary School in west Lynnwood, and is Lynnwood’s largest park. Approximately 22 acres of the park are preserved as native forest, with the remainder developed with active recreational uses, including athletic fields and a skate park. 

    The park's baseball complex is jointly maintained by the City of Lynnwood and Pacific Little League. The park also offers an orienteering course and is a popular venue for summer day camps and scouting programs. An amphitheater is nestled deep in the forest, and features popular summer performances of Shakespeare in the Park.

    SW County Park

    is a 120-acre, open space park within the City of Edmonds limits in southwestern Snohomish County.

    The site encompasses a series of forested ravines and Perrinville Creek, which flow through the eastern portion of the Park to Brown's Bay on Puget Sound. Olympic View Drive winds through the site on its way from Lynnwood to Edmonds.

    The site has two nature trails -- the larger trail system is on the north side of Olympic View Drive and a smaller one on the south side (inside of the bend in the road).  Use of off-road vehicles is not allowed on the trails.

    Seaview Park:

    This park has a baseball/soccer field and tennis courts. Children will enjoy the play area just below the restrooms. There is lots of grass to play frisbee, or have a picnic lunch. I found some of the best fall colors in all of the Edmonds Parks in Seaview Park. Dogs are allowed in this park. 

    SIERRA PARK Address: [masked]nd Ave W

    Sierra is unique in that there are Braille signs for the blind along the path identifying some of the plant materials.  The concept, developed by the Lions Club, provides a  wonderful opportunity for people.

    PINE RIDGE PARK Address: [masked]rd Ave W
    Hours:  Sunrise to sunset
     
    Another of Edmonds’ urban forests.  This park has a number of trails throughout.  Goodhope Pond supports a population of ducks that call this place home.
