No need to get in the car. Just walk 150 years south down Westover and you will find the trail head into Dolph Park. Trails lead to overlooks of First Sister and Second Sister Lakes. Small enough that it's not likely you'll get lost, but it's helpful to have your mobile phone to find your way to the nearest exit when you're hiked out.
