"With 20 hikes within a 30-mile drive of downtown Seattle, Best Easy Day Hikes Seattle, 2nd Edition, explores some of the best-known hikes while leading hikers to lesser known trailheads. Some of the Trail Finder hikes include Best Hikes along Puget Sound (Myrtle Edwards Park, Alki Trail, Union Bay Natural Area and others); Best Hikes in Urban Green Spaces (Discovery Park Loop Trail, Soos Creek Trail, Washington Park Arboretum Loop Trails, and others); and Best Hikes in the Cascade Foothills (Tiger Mountain, Preston-Snoqualmie and two others).
There are no hikes that need a ferry crossing and all directions to trailheads are given from either downtown Seattle or from Interstate 5, Interstate 90 and S.R. 520.
Each hike description includes mile-by-mile distance, difficulty and surface, best time of year to go, canine compatibility, and other trail uses."
