Location image of event venue


Join Marc Lainhart, The Intuitive Prospector and Maari Falsetto - Owner of Inner Alchemy in West Seattle for Forest Fridays!

DENNY CREEK - This is a popular trail, thanks to its gentle, family-friendly grade with amazing destinations. The natural water slide area at Denny Creek is a must-visit for families! Keekwulee Falls offers a stunning viewpoint that is easily accessible. Snowshoe Falls maybe a bit elusive and more difficult to see from the trail but is also a beautiful natural wonder. Bring a bathing suit!


This is a community event ($10 donation) to get out together and enjoy the beautiful Pacific Northwest with a hike, meditation, and Qigong. We will meet at Inner Alchemy at 7:30 am and return around 3:30 pm.

From Seattle, head east on I-90 to exit 47 Denny Creek/Tinkham Road. At the top of the exit ramp, turn left and cross over the freeway. Go 0.2 miles and turn right at the stop sign onto Forest Road 58. The road crosses under the freeway, after driving 0.2 miles, turn left.

Continue straight on for 2.9 miles and about a half-mile past the Denny Creek Campground there is a large paved parking lot on the right that can accommodate about 60 cars.

The trailhead can be accessed via a trail that begins near the bulletin board in the parking lot.

The Denny Creek parking restrooms are closed, but the restrooms at Franklin Falls are available to hikers.

There is ADA parking available nearer the Franklin Falls trailhead. Be sure to have a placard; parking patrols are on and will ticket violators​.
