A paved path along Elliott Bay shoreline, open to walkers, runners and bike riders. Views to the west over the water. 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.
