Added a new walk along Thornton Creek in north Seattle
Added a page with a new West Seattle walk: the Mi-Kwa-Mooks Loop
Added a new chapter on the Points Loop Trail located near Bellevue . Also, I reorganized the site a little - added a new section for hikes near the east shore of Lake Washington (Bellevue, Kirkland, etc.).
Big cutbacks in Metro service may affect access to some of the hikes. For example, North Bend service on the 208 has been cut to once every two hours, so you will have to plan carefully to do hikes in that area.
You can contact me at NWHikers.net (log in to your account - or create one if you don't have an account (it's easy) - and send a private message to whitebark).
Therefore, use the information at your own risk!
