December 24th, 2013 by master

Just in time to take advantage of your guilty holiday appetite, local nonprofit Feet First is getting the word out early about its Stairway Walks Day coming up Feb. 8.

The second annual event showcases staircases in 18 different Puget Sound neighborhoods, including hilly Maple Leaf, where the above photo was taken on this urban hike from Feet First’s Northeast Seattle Trails map (pdf).

There’s not a lot of information about the event this early, but we will keep you posted as the featured walks are planned.

Feet First invites you on a Northgate walk Saturday

April 25th, 2012 by master

Although it’ll be another eight years until the first Sound Transit light rail train officially rolls into the Northgate Station, it’s never too early to start planning walking routes to, from and around the station.

Feet First, a local nonprofit dedicated to promoting walkable communities, is doing just that with “Walking in Northgate … Opportunities with Light Rail,” a walk around the neighborhood from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 28:

Come take a walk with us around the neighborhood to learn how Northgate can become a great place to live and work, and to walk and bike.

Staff from Seattle Department of Planning and Development, Sound Transit, King County Metro, and Puget Sound Regional Council will be on hand to answer questions.

Interested? Meet at 10 a.m. at Thornton Creek Plaza, N.E. 319 Thornton Place (next to The Jewel Box Cafe).
