Run the Forbes Creek Stairs
Washington › Forbes Creek Stairs (10812 Forbes Creek Dr.)
Added by Rachel Lloyd
This Northwest outdoor stairmaster is a local favorite.
All benefits of a stair master paired with fresh air is the perfect recipe for a northwest workout. 210 wooden railroad ties make up a staircase that will test your endurance, build strength and get you sweating in no time. The stairs are open year round, 24 hours a day and offer parking for about 7-10 cars. The stairs are steep and are slippery when wet; however there is a great handrail if extra stability is needed. With Juanita Village just down the street, the location is convenient to many local restaurants and cafes to grab a bite after your intense workout. On a sunny day, the mile walk from the Forbes Creek Stairs to the village is a great way to cool down and take in the scenery. Head West on Forbes Creek Dr., cross the street and you will be connected to the boardwalk which wraps around the Northern tip of Lake Washington. Enjoy the day by the lake before heading back to say goodbye to the stairs, or rather, until next time. Please remember to keep our trails (and stairs) clean and pack out what you pack in!
