We here in Btown are so fortunate, there are so many local greenways and trails within just a few minutes of downtown. I hadn’t been in the woods back behind Padden for a bit so I invited my friend Arcadia and her pup Natalie to join me for a short walk. There was still just a bit of snow on the trail so it made for a sometimes slippery but beautiful day in the woods.
We parked at the puppy park, N48 41.903 W122 26.585 and went down the trail into the dog off-leash area. We crossed the access road and followed the trail up into the woods past the pond that has the fairy shrimp in it. When we reached the part by the freeway we went right and followed the trail that runs parallel to the road. The trail keeps going but we headed back to the car when the trails joined again.
