Description

SEATTLE! FGH is coming back to see y'all!

Carkeek Park, in northwest Seattle's Broadview neighborhood, is a hidden gem on the Puget Sound.

The Hike: 2.5 mile loop featuring forest, meadow, wetland, creek and ocean beach. This hike has 416 ft elevation gain.

Getting There: The Main Entrance of Carkeek Park is 950 NW Carkeek Park Rd. We will meet outside the main building (950) at 10am. There is a fee free parking lot & public transit options to the trailhead.


We will have a special guest joining us on the hike, Bethany Denton, who works for Here Be Monsters podcast. She says, "I'm a freelance reporter and proud fat girl! I am producing a story about Fat Girls Hiking and will be joining you all for the hike. This means I will be there with my headphones and mic, and will be recording the hike as we go along. I also hope to interview some of you if you're up to it! That said, you are not required to give be an interview, but there is a good chance that your voice might end up being recorded in the background. If you are uncomfortable with the recorder, please let me know and I'll do my best to give you space. Thank you all for allowing me to join you, I'm really looking forward to it!" The recordings for the hike will be used in traditional radio piece for KNKX's Sound Effect.


Fat Girls Hiking's body positive group hikes are open to ALL genders, ALL sizes, ALL skill levels. We will go at a pace that feels good for everyone. No one is too slow to hike with us! We love to share our lived experiences with one another while hiking and hope to create a space where ALL feel welcome! We ask that anyone who joins our group events refrain from diet talk, body shaming or weight loss talk.
