Next Meetup

Mt. Baker, Leschi, Madrona park hop
Today, we explore some of the neighborhoods on the east side of Seattle. We will start at the Mt. Baker light rail station and make our way east towards the water, then north to Leschi and Madrona. We will meet at the bottom level of Mt. Baker Light Rail Station (NOT Mt. Baker Transit Center). We will wait for the first train to arrive from downtown Seattle after 10:00, then start walking. After about 8 miles with several hundred feet of elevation, the hike concludes at Madrona Park, where we will have lunch, then ride the #2 back into town. Enjoy a mixture of neighborhood streets, park trails, and staircases, punctuated by trees, architecture and water views. Please bring lunch to eat at Madrona Park, water, sun protection, and whatever else you need to be outside for several hours.

What we're about

This group features great hikes in the Seattle area that take advantage of our wonderful transit system to access the trails. Our meetups begin at transit stops that are easily accessible from most neighborhoods in Seattle and we will walk or ride the bus together to the trailhead from there. In most hikes, we will end at a different point from where we start and take a different bus back. This group will feature a wide variety of hikes from easy to difficult, urban to rural, and flat sidewalk to steep, rugged trail. If you want to go hiking, but don't want to drive, enjoy point-to-point hikes but want to avoid the hassles of car shuttles, or want to explore new areas of the Puget Sound transit system that you didn't even know existed, this group is for you!
