Say farewell to 2016 with a scenic walk on New Year’s Eve down to and along Alki Beach in West Seattle then back up the hill for spectacular views. It’s rated a 2A. You’ll enjoy holiday lights and decorations in residential and business neighborhoods, along with great nighttime views of downtown Seattle, Magnolia and ship traffic across Puget Sound and Elliott Bay.
The 5km walk, rated 1A, does not go down to Alki, but does go to a great viewpoint of Seattle and Elliott Bay.
Flashlights are recommended. Finish by 10 PM. Join us for hot soup before and after your walk. This walk is part of a 2-day event. Join us for a separate event and route on New Year’s Day.
