West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails

Hike the Largest Forest in Seattle

Hike the Greenbelt

Take a hike close to home.  We are offering virtual hikes in the Greenbelt this spring and summer in place of guided Saturday hikes.  The first follows Steve Richmond, master of native plants and forest restoration, as he identifies native plants and non-native plants.  Follow Steve as he walks from the 14th Ave. S.W. and S.W. Holly Street trailhead.

This year and next the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group will also 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.
