Duwamish River Trail


 Trail cuts through an industrial area and follows the Duwamish River from Harbor Island to Fort Dent Park. Some streets are included in this trail, though the signs on the streets indicating the route are not to be found. Watch out for trucks on the north section - there are several trail crossings. When looking at various websites, it seems this trail is misunderstood. On the King County Bike Map it shows as about 1.5 miles long. On the City of Tukwila's map it's lumped in with the Green River Trail. Even on the city of Seattle's maps it appears to end at the First Ave South Bridge. New bike signs in Seattle call it the Duwamish Route south of the paved trail sections. From what I've been able to determine, the Duwamish Route ends at S 102nd St where the Green River Trail begins.
