Seward Park is a 300-acre thumb of land that pokes into Lake Washington just east of “mainland” Seattle and just north of Renton. It’s a wonderful playground, featuring a 2.4 mile biking and walking path around its edge and a web of forest trails — and when I say forest, I mean serious trees:

It’s an excellent afternoon’s jaunt: Moving without undue haste, we walked to the top of the peninsula along the “ring road,” then turned into the forest at the northern tip and worked our way back to the entrance, all in about an hour or so. Dogs are not allowed on the beaches, but they are allowed on the trails as long as they’re leashed. Here’s Chloe, reading the rules:
I’d love to see how you and your pup spent your time together this week — please post your photos on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page so we can all see them!
