Often called a “city of neighbor-hoods,” Seattle is shaped by soaring mounds like Queen Anne and Capitol Hill and by indentations such as Ravenna Ravine and Deadhorse Canyon. Weaving together the hills, bluffs, and canyons are stairs -- lots and lots of stairs. In fact, there are over 600 publicly accessible Seattle stairways within the city limits! And to explore Seattle by these stairs opens up stunning views and a whole new, intimate side of the Emerald City.Seattle Stairway Walks: An Up-and-Down Guide to City Neighborhoods is the city's first guidebook to 25 of the best neighborhood walks that feature public Seattle stairways. Each route description includes driving and public transit directions to the starting point, full-color photos, a detailed map, QR codes for saving abbreviated directions on your smart phone, tips on sections that are family-friendly, suggestions for cafes and pubs for that perfect espresso and sandwich en route, fascinating sidebars on Seattle's neighborhood history and community anecdotes, and much, much more.

Great book -- wonderful way to discover Seattle. We discovered this book through the web site and after browsing the PDF files available I felt like it was 'cheating' to not purchase it. Turns out there are more walks in the book than there were online, so a good purchase (although it is easier to just print the PDFs when available to carry).
We've used this book to help take us to places we hadn't been in the 22 years we've lived here. Embarrassingly, it took us to our first time in Rainier Beach, Ravenna Park and the Eastlake/Capital Hill intersection. We've found the directions exceedingly clear and where we've gotten lost it was both 'user error' and relatively minor.
Sure, it could use more history and sometimes the staircase travel is a little contrived, but for the price (especially price divided by hours of use) its a great value and a nice addition to the urban and suburban walker

I am a regular hiker who likes to walk and hike year round. In the winter months, when many of the trails are covered with snow, the days are short, and the weather is frequently rainy, it is great to explore different trails and walks in our urban areas. What makes this a gem of a resource is, in addition to 20 different walks to take in Seattle, are the references to interesting sites, historical notes, and ideas for places to eat or take a break. The walks are clearly described, and include references to additional weblinks. And you can even scan in a code and the directions will be on your smart phone if you don't want to bring the book. But the book is pocket-size, and includes clear maps, so I found it easy to carry. I look forward to exploring another neighborhood again soon.

Well, I lost 30+ pounds walking these urban trails, so it's cheaper and a lot more interesting than a gym. Terrific historical insights, great architectural moments, and a chance to really get to know this city of neighborhoods. Also quite an ice breaker, as the little green book is loved and known by many.

I purchased this book before a recent visit to Seattle in hopes of exploring areas I hadn't seen yet. While I was familiar with many of the regions discussed in the book, the specific stairway walks were mostly new to me. I decided to try the Cedar Park route in NE Seattle and was pleasantly surprised by what I found along the way. It was definitely a good workout, but also visually satisfying. The route was clearly explained and easy to follow. It gave a shortcut option in case I didn't feel up to doing the entire route (which I opted for).

This is a really great and unique book that's easy to carry along. I highly recommend it.

This book is full of places to walk that I would have never found on my own. It's fun exploring different parts of Seattle and finding little hidden jems. I love the stairways that are completely tree lined on both sides, sometimes you feel like you've been transported to someplace far from the city.

I ordered this book on the recommendation of a friend. My husband and I did the Southwest Queen Anne walk over the weekend. It was a beautiful summer day, and we thoroughly enjoyed the walk. The directions were very easy to follow, and we really liked that the guide book points out historic landmarks and even some great trees. We noticed a huge beautiful tree by one of the staircases, and when I looked in the book, it said it was a European beech. I highly recommend this book!

Great hikes and what a wonderful way to see a new to us neighborhood.The details are easy but one must pay attention to all of those little details which are all included although getting lost is not a bad thing....
For example: "Head straight up the stairs, take a right and then cross the street but be careful, this street does not have a cross walk." This small book, perfect to carry with and in fact one MUST, provides information on number of steps, restrooms, walking time, and cafe and pubs near by. Maps and photos are very helpful and directions to start the journey are clear. Have fun!
My girlfriend and I have completed three of the stairway walks from this book and have enjoyed all of them. The walks are reasonably challenging, without being a hard core workout. One of our favorite features are the little tidbits of detail that are interspersed throughout. Things like alleyway murals, interesting views, short detours and the like. We really have no complaints about the book; it is well researched and provides a wide variety of destinations, and there additional online content as well.

We also happened to run into the Jaramillos on the West Seattle walk, going opposite ways on the Thistle Stairs, so I can attest to the fact that they "walk the walk", so to speak.
