This is a newly expanded and updated third edition of the indispensable guide to invigorating nature walks in and around the Puget Sound area. Each of these adventures is within a half-hour drive of a major urban center, from Olympia in the south to Everett in the north. The scenery ranges from saltwater beaches and lakeshores to meadows and forests.

Details about the trail and its natural surroundings
Flora and fauna tips and facts
Length of the walk and level of difficulty
Information on park amenities, disabled access, and dog restrictions
Connecting trails to lengthen your stroll
