Seattle Park Trail

Seattle Park Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Skyscrapers. Noisy, raucous crowds. Air traffic heavy enough to have you ducking your head at times. About what you’d expect in Seattle, and exactly what you get in Seattle Park—and that’s a good thing. The skyscrapers here are towering peaks and jagged rocks. The raucous crowds are colonies of marmots. And the hair-raising air traffic? Gray jays, eagles, ravens, and hawks.

The Seattle Park Trail starts in lush old-growth forest and climbs into some of the most spectacular parkland you’ll find on the flanks of Mount Rainier. The area is rich in wildlife. Coyotes and bobcats hunt those marmots, as do enormous golden eagles. Mountain goats and black-tailed deer browse those meadows, and so to do lumbering black bears."
