Busway Trail

 I didn't know this trail existed until I saw it on the Seattle Bike Master Plan. It's short, has a somewhat bumpy surface and occasional bits of trash, and may be frequented by transients at times. But it does provide a closeup view of Safeco Field, and provides an alternative to busy 4th or 6th avenues.
