Urban Hike - Myrtle Edwards Park, Kinnear Park to Upper Queen Anne

  • Cruise pier in Seattle

    Pier 91, Seattle, WA (map)

    47.633419 -122.382813

  • meet in parking lot - look for my blue hyundai tucson
  • We had extremely wet weather last time we tried this.  Maybe we will luck out today.  We may only do Myrtle Edwards park, but if we are in the mood we can climb up Queen Ann Hill to Kerry Park.

    Only come if you are a fan of beautiful views and majestic neighborhoods. If you can't care less about either then you better stay away.









    There could  be a little bit of climbing on this one in the way of hills and possibly (ready probably) stair climbs.  But we will try to break it up with a flat block or two in between the climbs.  Or, if you only want to do the flat Myrtle Edwards Park and head back to your car while we climb, you are welcome to do that.

    I have mapped out a 6.33 mile walk with about 500 feet elevation gain.  This will vary as the streets I map may vary a little if we see something interesting one way and not the other. 

    Come with plenty of water, cameras, good walking shoes and snacks.  Plan on 3 hours or so.  Extreme winter conditions(iciness, storyminess) will cancel .

    Dogs must be in possession of their owner and children under twelve must be in a stroller or backpack.
