Longfellow Creek - Project which includes cleanup/restoration. There's a well-signed trail that runs up and down the length of the creek, about 4 miles, starting in Roxbury Park, across the street from Westwood Shopping Cneter. Some parts of the trail are genuine trail through forested areas along the creek, while others are just marked parts of city streets. The north end of the trail begins (roughly) at the Dragonfly Pavilion. searchpagefrom=1&searchdiff=1
Alki Beach. Stroll several miles from the (miniature) Statue of Liberty to Jack Block Park, or bike, rollerskate, etc., along the separate pathway for this (one end at Luna Park, the other near the Beach House).
