Details

Let's start accumulating our miles to Cardiff. We can multiple the miles walked by the corgis attending so the more corgis the more miles we amass. I know there are corgis in West Seattle and last January we walked in sunny weather in West Seattle when it wasn't so nice elsewhere in the region.

Anybody living in the area that knows a good place to meet please let me know. Thanks.

Longfellow Creek – An Urban Forest Oasis

Ever wanted to go on a hike through the forest, but didn’t want to leave the city? Well Longfellow Creek is the destination for you. Running through the Delridge Valley in West Seattle, this destination has a lot to offer. Boasting a 4 mile trail from its headwaters at Roxhill Bog Park running north almost to the Duwamish River, Longfellow Creek will make you feel as if you were right in the Cascade or Olympic mountains. The forest surrounding Longfellow Creek is home to many different species of mammals and birds as well as a fledgling salmon run.

To Roxhill Park: On the West Seattle freeway, cross the West Seattle Bridge to Fauntleroy Way Southwest. At the first light, turn left onto 35th Avenue Southwest, continue south to Southwest Barton Street and turn left. Find the Roxhill Park sign at 29th Avenue Southwest. Turn right and park next to the playground and restrooms.
