Near the southern end of Lake Washington, the now clean waters of Taylor Creek splash through what has been called the finest urban forest in Seattle. A trash dump and drug-use area until 1996 when neighbors decided to reclaim it, the 50-foot tree canopy of Dead Horse Canyon protects osprey, pileated woodpeckers, red-tailed hawks, cutthroat trout, raccoons, opossum, coyote, and the occasional deer. This clandestine ravine is also home to a plethora of native plants with medicinal and other practical uses.
