WTA is a nonprofit that needs you

We're just as excited as you to get the summer hiking season started. We're psyched our website, app and work for trails help you get outside.

But we're a nonprofit that runs on donations from regular people. If everyone who visited this site this holiday weekend donated $9/month, it would fully fund our work for the next 2 years. Time spent outdoors is priceless, but every donation large or small helps us support those experiences for everyone. Thank you and happy hiking!

Please take 2 minS to chip in $9

Hiking Downtown Bellevue Park

Twenty acres of parkland nestled in downtown Bellevue provides a great retreat for residents of the city.

Hike around a half-mile of easily navigable trail. Along the way, you'll be shaded by trees on one side. A canal borders the trail on the other side, leading you to a large waterfall pouring into a pool where you can rest and enjoy the sights and sound of rushing water in the heart of a city!

There's plenty of room here to bring a picnic and enjoy an afternoon taking in the views of Mount Rainier and the nearby skyline.
