Alki Beach is the birthplace of Seattle, where a schooner set the first settlers ashore in November 1851. Today this long stretch of shoreline and beach is one of Seattle’s liveliest and most scenic neighborhoods, where people come to play, dine, stroll, and scuba dive. If you’ve ever seen a postcard of Seattle’s stunning skyline shot from across the harbor, the classic photo was likely taken from the starting point of this hike.
