This newly expanded guide proves that you don't need to venture far outside the city to find the serene wonders of the natural world. Each of these adventures is within a half-hour drive of a major urban center, from Olympia to Everett. The scenery ranges from saltwater beaches to lakeshores, meadows to forests, and each walk offers detailed descriptions about setting, trails, special attractions, length, difficulty, amenities, access, connecting trails, and dog restrictions, as well as a useful area map. This new edition includes an appendix listing a variety of local volunteer opportunities, so you too can contribute to these beautiful Washington walks. Born to a family of incurable travelers, Sue Muller Hacking has dusted her boots on the trails of Asia, Africa, and North and South America. She is a resident of Seattle.
