The Burke-Gilman Trail is one of the most heavily used bicycling facilities in Seattle. The western most terminus of the trail is currently at 11th Avenue NW in Ballard. The trail continues east to City limits and beyond. Seattle Department of Transportation currently has three projects that will extend the pedestrian and bicycle corridor all the way to Golden Gardens Park.
The first two Burke-Gilman Extension projects will construct sections of the Burke-Gilman Trail in Ballard from the Ballard Locks to Golden Gardens Park. The first section, completed in 2005, starts at the Ballard Locks and continues to NW 60th Street. The second section, completed in 2008, starts at NW 60th Street and continues north to Golden Gardens Park. In anticipation of the trail coming to the intersection of Seaview Ave NW and Seaview Place NW, the trail head was constructed first, separate from the trail construction.
In addition, Seattle Department of Transportation has completed a technical design study of bicycle and pedestrian route options for what is commonly referred to as "The Missing Link". The "Missing Link" refers to the area in the South Ballard transportation corridor between 11th Ave NW and the Ballard Locks.
