This summer take a hike close to home. We are offering virtual hikes in the Greenbelt in place of guided Saturday hikes. Click here to follow Steve Richmond, master of native plants and forest restoration, as he walks from the 14th Ave. S.W. and S.W. Holly Street trailhead and identifies native plants and non-native plants. Click here to follow Ken Workman, great-great-great-great-grandson of Chief Seattle as he walks native land, starting at S.W. Dawson and 19th Ave. S.W.
We are also excited to partner with Duwamish Tribal Services in planning a Ridge to River trail, which will connect Puget Ridge to the Duwamish River. Read more below.
Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy. The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. The West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (WDGT) promotes walking and hiking trails in the greenbelt.
