Summer Evening Trail Run Series: SEWARD PARK

08/12/2014

Situated on a peculiar peninsula, Seward Park provides perhaps one of the greatest contrasts in Seattle: 100+ acres of old growth forest, just minutes from the city center. The event follows a loop that is almost entirely in the forest, so there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy views of the majestic old-growth forest– with graceful Western Red Cedar and towering Douglas Fir– that make Seward Park distinctive. The Friends of Seward Park affectionately dub this the “Magnificent Forest.”

The Summer Evening Trail Run Series takes place on 6 Tuesday evenings in some of the most verdant running destinations that are conveniently located within the Seattle and Eastside areas. Distances are short, ranging from 4k to 10 miles.
