Regional Trails

The Elliott Bay Trail is a 5.5-mile long paved path that wanders along the shoreline from Safeco Field, south of Downtown Seattle, alongside Alaska Way right past the downtown waterfront then north as far as Smith Cove in Magnolia. This trail provides an excellent view of the bay, Puget Sound, the buildings of the Seattle skyline and off to the Olympic Mountains in the west.

The route includes local parks, shops and restaurants. Along the route are multiple attractions, such as Pike Place Market, the Seattle Aquarium, the Seattle Great Wheel and the Olympic Sculpture Park. It's a great place to stroll after a dinner out or to sit and relax after a hard day of sightseeing.


The Elliott Bay Trail is paved the entire route. Portions of the trail are adjacent to roadways and the trail goes through a very congested area of Downtown Seattle. The trail is open for bike riding, walking and running.
