Lake, Old Growth Trees and Columbia City: Beautiful Natural Spaces and History

Location Seattle, Washington, USA
Stripe Paypal Visa Mastercard Amex Discover
Overview
Believe it or not, there is an old-growth forest in Seattle! We start at my favorite viewpoint in the city, perfect for your Instagram feed. Then we cruise the scenic shores of Lake Washington and learn the incredible history of how it was “re-plumbed” while on our way to Seward Park for fantastic views of Mt. Rainier (if the mountain is out!). This park is an incredible gem holding one of only 2 old-growth stands left in the city. The trail through the old-growth is flat, less than 1 mile long and it’s ‘flip-flop accessible’ We can walk as much or as little as you like. After that, let's get coffee in the beautiful, historic Columbia City neighborhood. This tour is mostly on foot, so wear your comfy shoes and appropriate weather gear.

With a max of 3 people, this is a personal "best of Seattle" tour that explores the places most visitors never see, places I take my friends and family when they visit! For a private version (1 to 4 people) please call/text 206-717-5797

  • Dr. Jose Rizal Park
    This is my favorite viewpoint in the city! From here you can see what makes Seattle such a vibrant city: the Port of Seattle, the Olympic Mountains, Elliott Bay and the downtown core. Perfect spot for your Instagram photos! From here we will travel through some great neighborhoods on our way to the Lake.
