Papalars Seattle Skyline

Say farewell to 2012 with a scenic walk on New Year's Eve down to and along Alki Beach in West Seattle then back up the hill for spectacular views. It's rated a 2A. You'll enjoy holiday lights and decorations in residential and business neighborhoods, along with great nighttime views of downtown Seattle, Magnolia and ship traffic across Puget Sound and Elliott Bay.

The 5km walk, rated 1A, does not go down to Alki, but does go to a great viewpoint of Seattle and Elliott Bay.

Flashlights are recommended. Finish by 10 PM. Join us for hot soup after your walk. This walk is part of a 2-day event. Join us for a separate event and route on New Year's Day.

    I apologize for not making it. After I checked the bus I have to take, the return schedule didn't leave after 7 pm. I will change rsvp next time by checking earlier on bus.

    Anyone want to carpool from the north end? We can meet at Ash Way P&R (I-5 and 164th) or MLT P&R (Community Transit Center) at 3:00. I also want to go to the Elliott Bay Brewpub afterward for dinner.
