Join Cathy and Jake Jaramillo, Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors and authors of "Seattle Stairway Walks," coming to bookstores early next year, on this panoramic survey of Alki and Schmitz Park. It'll open your eyes while exercising your mind and body!

We'll wind down the narrow, tree-lined lanes of North Admiral before reaching our first flights of stairs above Alki Beach. Before heading down a final stairway to the waterfront, we'll pause to take in views of Alki, the Sound and the Olympics. Eventually we'll turn back from the beach and back up the bluff, where we'll find a set of tucked-away stairs that lead past a tiny pocket of charming homes and back toward Admiral Way.

On the other side of Admiral we'll look down from a 1920s-vintage bridge into Schmitz Park Preserve before switch-backing down timber stairs into the Preserve itself. Schmitz Park Preserve is one of only two places in Seattle with remaining old-growth forest, and we'll use its winding trails to get up-close views of its towering trees and lovely creek before returning to our starting place.
