Feet First to Host Free Queen Anne Stairway Walk (and other neighborhoods too)

January 29th, 2013 by Laura

Queen Anne Stairway Walk
October 2012

Update: overnight, the Queen Anne Stairway Walk sold out (can we complain? It means our ‘hood is popular!). Other neighborhoods still have spots, and we’ll update if Feet First adds more spots – or if you want to start your own informal group, let us know!)

If you missed the October Queen Anne Stairway Walk led by Jake and Cathy Jaramillo, authors of Seattle Stairway Walks, or if you just want to attend the walk again, here’s your opportunity.

Feet First is presenting the first Stairway Walks Day on Saturday, February 9th, and the Southwest Queen Anne stairway walk is on the agenda. The Seattle-wide event features 15 walks across neighborhoods to highlight a selection of Seattle’s 650 publicly accessible stairways.

The guided walks will be routes from the Jaramillos’ book, and will be led by Feet First volunteers. The event is free, but the walks are limited to 20 people per walk – so register now if you want to attend.

And, if you’re interested in exploring stairways outside of our Queen Anne, additional walks will be held in Fremont, Golden Gardens, Maple Leaf, Madrona, Eastlake and North Capitol Hill, Downtown, West Seattle, and Rainier Beach. And, if you want to venture outside of city limits, you can tour the stairs of Burien, Bellevue, and Mercer Island.
