If you want to explore Seattle and get a bit of exercise in this is great book. I’ve done almost all of the walks and they offer a wide range of experiences and difficulty. A nice way to see new parts of the city and discover fun neighborhood shops.

Be aware that not all of the walks are still doable, the Burien Eagle Landing stairs being an example. Several stairs have also been modified or replaced since the book was written.

Such great little walks, showed us lovely parts of the city we would have otherwise never discovered. I only wish there were more walks. And a book like this for every city!

If you're new to the area, these walks provide a great starting point for exploring some of the city's best parks, view points, and of course, stairways. And even if you've lived here you're whole life, as I have, this book will show you places that you never heard of or haven't visited in years.

The guide contains 25 walks that provide a nice workout, although they a

I am a regular hiker who likes to walk and hike in the Puget Sound area year round. In the winter months, when many of the mountain trails are covered with snow, the days are short, and the weather is frequently rainy, it is great to explore different trails and walks in our urban areas. Or any time of year if I don't have time to drive out to the mountains, and am looking for some interesting places to walk or share with out of town visitors, it's nice to have a good resource for ideas. What ma ...more

I really enjoyed doing many of these walks/hikes. So much variety, from neighborhood to trails. I came across so many hidden little gems and pocket parks. Very detailed, which was appreciated. I never got lost!

This book is full of fun and challenging stairway routes around town. The family did one last weekend in Queen Anne and had a great time. I can't wait to do more. Next up is Ravenna. ...more
