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 as shown in the Trail Map. There is also a trail network to the south at Westcrest Park (see Seattle Parks Maps).

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.
