While the Evergreen State is known for its—what else?—evergreen trees, we have plenty of deciduous plants to let you know the fall season is on its way, and Seattle’s temperate climate makes for crisp, but comfortable, autumn walks.
With those prime seasonal conditions, it’s a good thing that we’re densely packed with places for autumn enthusiasts to take a stroll through the changing leaves, whether you’re looking for a classic maple leaf or the unique shape of a larch tree.
So grab your gloves and an apple cider—or your Birkenstocks and an iced latte, fall weather is truly unpredictable here, bring layers—and plan a few walks through some of Seattle’s prettiest parks and other crunchy-leaf destinations. We’ve mapped out some of our favorite suggestions.
