UPDATED WITH PHOTOS
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1:30–4 P.M., meet at Carkeek Park trailhead, 6th Ave. NW and NW 100th Pl., rain or shine.
The next intergeneration hike will explore Carkeek Park, near Northgate. After meeting at the trailhead, the group will follow Pipers Creek, which a group of citizen activists have restored as an active salmon run. The the trail passes one of Seattle's early farmsteads, where old apple trees still bear fruit. Some people could walk straight to the beach while others can turn up the South Ridge Trail and lengthen the hike from 1.5 to 2 miles. At the beach there is a wonderful bridge over the railroad tracks and a small but interesting beach to walk on (maybe a train will go by!). The group will find a spot on the beach to gather for singing and prayer and reflection.
