This is one of our very favorite explorations of Seattle stairs, partly because it was one of the first routes we discovered. But there's also a unique, immersive feeling as you walk along hillsides through the heart of the neighborhood, cloaked among the trees. Lake Washington is a big visual presence here too, as it is with the other Seattle stairway walks along the shoreline (check out the map on the Home page). The Lakewood-Seward Park neighborhood also has an interesting history that is closely tied to the level of the lake, which fell 9 feet in 1917. You can learn more about that in the book, which also provides directions for an optional walk through old Wetmore Slough, now high and dry and known as Genesee Park.
