Trails

Trail
“You can walk, run or ride bikes on this trail, which winds along the ship canal and Lake Union. Pick it up right down the hill from us in Fremont and take it – if you’re feeling energetic (it’s just 2 ½ miles) -- all the way to the University of Washington and walk around the gorgeous campus!”

Trail
“Look up the map to this trail great for walking, running and especially biking. It goes from beyond the beaches on Lake Washington at Magnuson Park (where there is an off leash dog park, boat ramps too) all the way to Ballard. It runs along a lot of water areas with stunning views of downtown and peaks into different neighborhoods. Start at Gas Works Park and follow the trail through Fremont to Ballard. Or go the opposite direction all the way to Magnuson Park!”
