Green Lake to Edmonds Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Edmonds is a well-loved Seattle suburb because of its homey downtown, wonderful views across the water, and easy access by ferry to Kitsap Peninsula. On top of that, it’s a great ride from Green Lake. Heading north, the route barrels through the neighborhoods of Greenwood, Bitter Lake, and Shoreline.

For a taste of officially sanctioned kitsch, make a stop at the Viewlands Hoffman Receiving Station, a Seattle City Light power substation at Fremont and North 107th. The northwest corner of the industrial enclosure contains a curious set of handmade wind sculptures made from kitchen items. It’s a tribute to the quirky pastime of Emil Gehrke of Grand Coulee, who created and maintained the rusting art."

Best Bike Rides Seattle (Falcon Guides)
Gene Bisbee
"This bicycle route borrows heavily from a defunct trolley line to find its way from the Green Lake Park area in Seattle to the waterfront in downtown Edmonds. The Green Lake to Edmonds Loop partly follows the path of the old Interurban Trolley that ran until 1939. Today that corridor comprises bike lanes on residential streets and several sections of the Interurban Trail, as well as Seattle’s first European-style cycle track on Linden Avenue. The ride begins across the street from Green Lake Park, a magnet for people seeking outdoor pursuits in an urban setting. Many children have learned to ride their bikes on the 2.8-mile trail around the lake, and kayakers come here for recreation and competition. Early plans for the park almost didn’t come to fruition, however, as housing reached the lake’s edge before the city could acquire parkland in the early 1900s." Read more
