Feet First Celebrates Third Annual Stairway Walks Day

A Great Way to Celebrate Neighbor Appreciation Day Early!

On Saturday, February 7, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, join Feet First for the Third Annual Stairway Walks Day. This event features fourteen simultaneous walks across the region, which celebrate the legacy of several hundred publicly accessible stairways.

Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors will lead 450 participants along several of the region’s most impressive stairways, collectively traversing up and down more than 100,000 steps. The stairway routes featured on Stairway Walks Day are from Cathy and Jake Jaramillo’s book Seattle Stairway Walks: An Up-and-Down Guide to City Neighborhoods. The book is intended to help urban adventurers appreciate the many stairways that make up the vivid fabric of our neighborhoods, and their connection to local greenspaces, history, art, and architecture.

To RSVP go to or at Space is limited to 35 people per walk.

Urban explorers are invited to join one of fourteen guided neighborhood walks in the following Seattle neighborhoods:  Alki; Deadhorse Canyon & Rainier Beach; Downtown: City Hall to Pike Place; Eastlake, North Capitol Hill  & Portage Bay; Fauntleroy & Morgan Junction;  Fremont;  Longfellow Creek & Pigeon Point; Madrona & Leschi; Mount Baker; Ravenna; South Magnolia; Southwest Queen Anne; The Olmstead Vision; University of Washington
