The Long Walk

Friday, July 23, 2010 at 8:00am – Sunday, July 25, 2010 at 6:00pm

Seattle to Snoqualmie Falls by Regional Trails with Susan Robb and Stokley Towles

Join me and Stokely on an adventure in our own backyard, an unscripted encounter with a place we THINK we already know.
Help form our band of “trail tramps” as we walk the King County Regional Trails System through urban and rural neighborhoods. We’ll be camping in unlikely city parks, encountering work by “guest artists” (perhaps one of them is you?), taking cooling dips in the Tolt river, and watching art films under the stars. Don’t forget to pack a little bling for the “formal” dinner at Tolt-MacDonald Park.

The Long Walk starts near Sandpoint/Magnuson Park at 8am Friday, July 23rd. We’ll arrive at Snoqualmie Falls on Sunday, July 25th in the afternoon. A support van will carry our camping gear and related items. Coffee and breakfast snacks provided by Caffe Vita. Pizza and salads provided by Via Tribunale. A bus will be on hand to transport us back to Seattle.


There will a short (but necessary) informational meeting on Wed. July 7th at 7:00pm at 4Culture. The meeting will detail the project in general, what you should pack, the exact staring point, our walking route, etc … but feel free to get in touch with me before then with any questions.

The Long Walk is a commission from 4Culture and the Seattle Department of Parks and Resources
