Seattle multi-use trails link neighborhoods to business districts and create connections with recreational and natural areas within the Puget Sound region. Multi-use trails contribute to SDOT’s mission is to delivering a first-rate transportation system for Seattle.

Watch your pace

The Burke-Gilman Trail is one of the most heavily used pedestrian and bicycling facilities in Seattle. The Burke-Gilman Trail Extension (Missing Link) Project would complete the regional trail system running through Seattle, to Issaquah via the Sammamish River Trail and the East Lake Sammamish Trail. Completing the project is the city’s top-rated trail priority as identified by the Bicycle Master Plan.
