The West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group will not be scheduling guided Thursday or Saturday hikes with groups until the coronavirus crisis has eased. However, trails in the greenbelt are fairly lonesome, and we encourage you to enjoy nature close to home by taking a solitary walk or with household members. See trailheads and maps of the greenbelt here for the north half and here for the south half. This might be a good time to read about the history of the greenbelt on this website and enjoy descriptions and photos of past hikes. We will resume our themed hikes when the appropriate time comes.
This year the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group will be supporting the Duwamish Tribe in their efforts to create a Ridge to River trail, from the top of Puget Ridge, from South Seattle College and Pathfinder School, to the Duwamish Longhouse and Duwamish Waterway.
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.
