"This flat, paved trail runs through a peaceful park setting between the Fremont Bridge and beyond Seattle Pacific University on the south side of the ship canal. The benches on the grassy waterfront, the shade of the willow trees, the boats slowly passing by, and the occasional rising of the bridge provide a relaxing stroll or skate. To the west the trail passes through an industrial area and the paved path ends. Cyclists use the trail as a connector between city bike routes." Read more
