Elliott Bay Trail/ Terminal 91 Bike Path

 A waterfront trail with great views of the Sound that provides access to a fishing pier, the Seattle waterfront and Magnolia. There are separate bike/ pedestrian trails in the southern section. The north section of the trail bends around a large imported car area, and there's even a bicycles-only overpass over some railroad tracks. The trail ends near a marina with a small rocky beach. The northern section of the trail has limited hours - generally daylight hours - though it may be closed for security reasons since it is next to a working railroad.

Geese are commonly seen here. So is their poo.

Warning sign: hours of this portion of trail are limited

Watch your step when you cross the tracks

Identity crisis - what's the real name of this trail?

A bike overpass? Whee!
