Queen Anne Hill Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Rising some 450 feet, Queen Anne is the tallest of Seattle’s original seven hills. Its name comes from the ornate Victorian homes on its south slope, built to take advantage of some truly spectacular views.
Atop the hill’s view-deprived mesa, the housing stock tended to be more modest but still solid and respectable. This venerable middle-class neighborhood was becoming more regal even before the 2000s housing inflation. Today, you’ll see an enticing mix of classic 20th-century homes, schools, and commercial architecture as you walk down lovely tree-lined streets and catch stunning views of the city and Puget Sound."
