Trails

There are several miles of trails within the West Duwamish Greenbelt. The trail conditions vary depending on how well the trail is maintained or used. The trails that are within park boundaries are typically better maintained. There are also “social” trails that urban hikers have made to connect trails and points of interest.  Several trails have also been created for restoration activities. Most of the trails are in the northern portion of the greenbelt north of Highland Park Way, but there is also a trail network to the south at Westcrest Park.

This new trail map includes a QR code so you can download the map to your mobile device. Scan the code with your phone’s camera to use the free Avenza Maps App, which will allow you to follow your movement through the trail system on your phone. You can also download the PDF version if you want to print your own.

SeatteTrailsApThe Seattle Trails App shows you where all the official Seattle Parks trails in Seattle are. This App has been built as an open-source project by volunteers to improve the experience of getting outdoors in Seattle. It is a collaboration between Seattle Parks & Recreation Department, Seattle Trails Alliance and volunteer software developers.


For several years, Alan Robertson walked the trails in the West Duwamish Greenbelt and wrote about it at his blog
Walking Riverview.  Alan and Lynn have moved out of the area, but the work he did documenting trails and the history of community involvement in the greenbelt has been generously shared with the WDGT group on this website.
