Alki Stair Climb and College Street Ravine Professional Review and Guide
"Getting prepared for the hiking season can involve time in the gym. But time spent on a treadmill or stair-climbing machine isn’t very interesting. Fortunately Seattle is blessed in having some steep hills. Though the hills stymied road building, our city fathers saw to it that pedestrians were provided with stairs. Such wisdom! And what better way to get in shape than to utilize those stairs? Adjacent to Alki Beach are two tall sets of nearly 200 stairs to climb. Combine them with a pleasant walk in a quiet neighborhood."
