If you're looking for something to get you outside this weekend, discover one of Seattle's many urban bike paths that will guide you safely and enjoyably to some of Seattle's most scenic places. One of Seattle's most beautiful bike trails starts along the Seattle waterfront in downtown. The Elliott Bay Trail begins near Safeco Field and continues onto Alaskan Way past Pike Place Market, taking you through the Olympic Sculpture Garden, Myrtle Edwards Park and Elliott Bay Park. Riding along Elliott Bay offers unmatched views of Puget Sound, The Olympics and a unique perspective of downtown.

Continue onto an on-street bike trail along 20th Ave W, merging onto Gilman Ave W. Cross over to Ballard to join the Burke Gilman Trail via the Ballard Locks by turning onto W Fort Street and 27th Avenue until you reach W Commodore Way. Follow the Chittenden Locks Trail until you merge onto the Burke Gilman Trail. Continue on this path for a beautiful ride along the waterfront to Golden Gardens Park.

From Ballard, many options await you - including following bike trails to the Woodland Park Zoo and Green Lake or down into Fremont. Of course, you can also plan your own weekend biking adventure with the Seattle Department of Transportation's official bike map.
