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. (See this article in The Seattle Times.).
For hikes, see a new map that will change the way hikers experience the Greenbelt. Read about upcoming or past hikes in Take a Hike.
For work parties, see Restoration Work Projects.
For our partnership with the Duwamish Tribe to create a Ridge to River trail, see Community Connections.
