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.
Looking south towards downtown Seattle, Harbor Island and Mt. Rainier

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!


Wishful thinking
