We’ve driven by it many times. A parking lot just at the end of 3rd NW and 145th along the Seattle north city limit. This is the Llandover Wood Greenspace. We wanted to do another walk for our MAD training and it looked interesting. It is a small loop through a wonderful forest. It borders on The Highlands so it is still pretty secluded. No vistas at least not in the summer.
The walk takes you down hill to a junction. A few big leaf maples were starting to drop their leaves but probably due to drought instead of the start of Fall. It is the last day of summer and very warm. It will end up being in the mid-80’s which is very unusual for September.
We took the South loop and were surprised to see the local barred owl fly among the forest. We watched him as he watched us for a while. We walked to the end of the trail and then back up to get a little bit of elevation. Overall we did about a mile and a quarter and a 400 ft gain good work out. We then dropped by Richdmond Beach to do 188 stairs and another mile. Lovely end to summer.
