This month come hear tales of felons and disasters at the Park at the Former Wayne Golf Course. Escaped convicts, shoot-outs, and a man-made disaster will be featured this month.

We’ll be starting at Blyth Park: Here are the directions to Blyth Park

Carston Curd returns to tell the story of his ancestor and a shoot-out at Wayne, and OneBothell’s President, Roger Burton, will tell some true stories about the hill.
We will be walking part-way up the hill on the Tolt Pipeline trail, which is very steep and loose in places, and returning on the trails, which are less steep but have steep slopes, roots, and other things of which to be careful. Plan accordingly!

If you cannot make the whole hike but still want to hear the stories, we will recount them after the hike to anyone that sticks around at Blyth Park.

Next month on August 28, we will be doing a scavenger hunt featuring trees and prizes. Fun for the whole family!

All ages are welcome, as are dogs on leash. Bring the kids and get them out of the house! We will be following King County COVID guidelines.

Over the next few months, we’ll be working on some more exciting walks. The schedule is tentative. Walks are the last Saturday of every month at 10 a.m.

  • August 28, a tree scavenger hunt with prizes.
  • September 25, a talk about salmon and the return of Kokanee, until recently thought to be extinct here.
  • October 30, a repeat of the geology talk since the heat in June kept many people from attending.
