WH2H WA – Seattle – Free Women’s Group Hike
Join WH2H Ambassador Carrie for a Women’s Hike at Washington Park Arboretum .
We’ll be hiking/walking some of the trails at the Washington Park Arboretum, in Seattle, which has a mix of paved and dirt/gravel trails, and will include some stairs. This is an easy-to-moderate hike/walk with views of plants, trees, and wildlife. (https://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/washington-park-arboretum)
We welcome all fitness levels to join us; the goal is to enjoy the journey, we are never in a race! And if you don’t think of yourself as “outdoorsy” you’re in the right place!
We’ll meet outside the Visitor Center, on the parking lot side of the building, where we will get to know each other a bit, then begin our walk with a “walking thought” to reflect on. At some point during our hike, we’ll pause to sit, meditate and/or journal, and connect with each other.
Time: 3:00-5:00pm (please budget some time for parking so we can gather at 3:00)
Location/Directions: Washington Park Arboretum Visitor Center, 2300 Arboretum Dr E, Seattle, WA 98112
Parking: There is free parking in several lots in the arboretum, some of which is pretty far from the visitor center (so try there first).
Difficulty level/Distance: EASY/MODERATE / about 2-3 miles, with some elevation change
Restroom Facilities: There are public restrooms in the park.
