This is our urban mushing event. Good manners are the order of the day, not speed. It is more scooter speed than mountain bike speed. (Bikes are welcome, though, if you don't have a scooter.) We park in Woodland Park in the parking lot east of Aurora Avenue (SR99) and adjacent to N 50th street. From there we scooter under Aurora via a short tunnel. From there we will circle the Zoo in a clockwise direction on city sidewalks. We will return to (Lower) Woodland Park via a foot bridge over Aurora. From there we will follow hilly unpaved trails through lawn and woods. We will pass the dog park on the access road down to West Green Lake Way. We cross Green Lake Way and begin circling Green Lake going counter clockwise. Soon we leave the paved route and cut east to the outer dirt trail that parallels East Green Lake Way. Before reaching the soccer fields, we cut down across the sloping lawn and join the paved trail around the lake. After passing the parking lots and pool house we leave the paved trail and get back on a dirt trail that crosses a big lawn. At the very north end of the lake we cut back down to the paved trail and stay on it for a while. At the boat houses we cross West Green Lake Way and climb up into Woodland Park again. After the run, you are free to take the dogs to the dog park for free running.
In Seattle dogs are not allowed (really!) to walk into lakes and the Sound. Bring water rather than letting the dogs drink from Green Lake. They also are not allowed off leash except in the Dog Parks. It is easy to be nabbed and fined.

Driving Instructions:

Meet at the parking lot that abuts N 50th street where Woodland Park Ave North dead-ends at the park. This parking lot is two blocks east of SR 99/Aurora Avenue. From I-5 take the NE 50th Street exit. Go west on NE 50th. Cross Green Lake Way and proceed  to the second parking lot beyond Stone Way. Turn right into the parking lot just before you would have driven under Aurora.

Meeting after: Location to be announced.

The Orting Trail runs through pastoral Orting along the Carbon River. On a clear day it seems that the trail will run you smack into Mount Rainier. It is a rail trail, level and paved. Much of the distance there is a dirt trail that parallels the pavement. A mile from parking a tributary comes into the Carbon River. Sometimes we let the dogs play in this stream, especially if the weather is warm. The route passes cattle, poplars, a wetland restoration project, fields and woods. Bicyclists and walkers love this trail.

Driving Instructions:

Take SR 167 south to Sumner Buckley Highway (SR410). Go east on SR410 to SR 162 and go south on SR 162 all the way to the original center of Orting. Park in the parking lot on the east side of the central park where once the railroad station was. We will go south on the trail out of town and into the country side.

Meeting after: Location to be announced.
