Magnolia Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"As the legend goes, while charting Puget Sound and its lands from his ship, British explorer George Vancouver spied some lovely magnolia trees rising atop a tall bluff on a peninsula at Elliott Bay’s northern lip. Capt. Vancouver labeled that peninsula Magnolia. The name stuck, even though explorations on land confirmed that those were really madrona trees.

Yet the name Magnolia, with its intimations of Southern gentility, fit what became a patrician village within the city, a home to spectacular views (and equally spectacular homes, many sporting a more mid-century modern sense of style than those on neighboring Queen Anne Hill). Another Seattle neighborhood was eventually named Madrona (Walk 28)."
