A paved path along Elliott Bay shoreline this route is a lovely, flat route to enjoy views of Puget Sound and a little nature close to the heart of Seattle. This trail provides a pleasant way to go north-south in Seattle, with fewer intersections than walking on the main city streets. There are plenty of connections in to downtown such as the Pike Street Hillclimb and the Lenora Street Bridge.
The trail goes through the Olympic Sculpture Park and Myrtle Edwards Park. There is good variety along its length, from highest urban density to more wide open and industrial.
Your best access point is Myrtle Edwards via the Olympic Sculpture Park. There is a parking garage available at the Sculpture Park, or extend your outing by heading here without a car. You can bus it, or simply come in from wherever you can find parking in Belltown or on the waterfront.
