Exploring the best of Seattle.

Swithback trail on Mount-Si trail

Mount Si Trail - Washington State

Matthew Konsmo - 2019

45 mins from Seattle you will find one of the best hikes in the PNW. The trail is popular and it can be crowded. Something like 100,000 people hike the trail each year. I like that. There are a lot of interesting people from around Seattle and around the world to meet. It’s fun to see what kind of gear people have bought. It’s fun to see kids enjoying nature. Sometimes you can strike up a conversation with someone fun to find a hiking partner. I’ve hiked Mount Si many times and no matter how crowded it was, I never felt like it was too many people. It’s a great trail that I hike many times a year, sometimes several times in one week

GREENLAKE - Washington State

Matthew Konsmo - 2019

Greenlake is only six miles from downtown Seattle, so you can get there by a quick Uber ride if you’re in town for the weekend and need a good spot to run. The running path is about 3 miles around the lake. Hit up Retreat after for a legendary avocado toast.
