Thank you for your interest in walking in our community! 

The City of Edmonds, City of Lynnwood, City of Mountlake Terrace, Edmonds Waterfront Center, and the Verdant Health Commission are back in the summer of 2023 to coordinate community walks, led by volunteers, for individuals and families. There will be four walks each week for eight weeks throughout the summer, and we hope you will join us.

Walks will typically be 2-3 miles and will take about an hour to complete. South County Walks is family-friendly and open to anyone interested, of all abilities. Once you have completed the one-time registration form online, you can drop in and participate on any walk with no RSVP required. Participate from one or all four sites and you will be entered to win a prize.
