Burke-Gilman Trail

The Burke-Gilman Trail runs 20 miles from Golden Gardens Park in Seattle to Bothell where it intersects the Sammamish River Trail. Part of the "locks to lakes corridor," the Burke-Gilman is a paved, off-road route over its entire length, with the exception of a roadway segment in Ballard. The trail crosses the neighborhoods of Ballard, Fremont, Wallingford, the University District, and View Ridge within the City of Seattle, as well as the cities of Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, and Bothell.

The trail follows a historic railroad route and passes the Hiram Chittenden Locks, Fremont Canal Park, Gas Works Park, University of Washington, Magnuson Park, Log Boom Park in Kenmore, and Wayne Golf Course in Bothell. The trail is highly popular with cyclists, joggers, skaters and strollers, and it's an important weekday commuter route. Seattle manages the Burke-Gilman within the city boundary.
