Walkability nonprofit Feet First is hosting its second Stairway Walks Day this weekend, with 18 guided neighborhood walks across the Seattle area.
Central District residents can explore the stairways of Madrona and Leschi:
Madrona and Leschi
In the late 1800s, electric trolleys first reached this bluff high above Lake Washington. New development quickly followed, leaving a legacy of stairways. We’ll explore some of the neighborhood’s discreet stairs and passageways, with their lake-spanning vistas, gorgeous old homes and beautiful volunteer-supported greenspaces.
Walk Leaders: Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassador, Suzanne Youles
Numbers: 3.2 miles; 371 steps down, 299 steps up.
You can join in on Saturday, February 8, from 10am to 12pm. Feet First is suggesting a $5 donation per participant. Space is limited to 25 participants, so be sure to register soon at Brown Paper Tickets.
