Sesqualitchew Creek is a fantastic find in the middle of DuPont. Transition from urban to forest and back over a short trail that provides a great distraction from the buzz of urban life -- and all possible on your lunch break!

From the City Hall parking lot, follow a little trail down through a forested canyon for about one and a half miles. The cool green tunnel is welcome respite on hot days, and wildlife is bursting in the trees, bushes, and on the trail beneath your feet.

Kids will love this hike for that reason, so be prepared to go slow and enjoy all the little wonders that surround you. If you need to tempt them on, tell them about the pebbled beach that waits at the end of the trail, where there are old rail lines to clamber around and explore.

Further on the horizon, views of Puget Sound and the mountains beyond provide an excellent backdrop for you to appreciate before making the return trip to civilization.
