Dead Horse Canyon Wild Plant Walk

Dead Horse Canyon: Wild Plant Walk Professional Review and Guide

"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."
