Green River Trail


 Hugs the Green River from Kent north to the south side of Seattle. A nice combination to do: Ride part of this trail and make a loop using the Interurban Trail. A discontinous chunk of the trail is reachable by turning left at S 259th, then right on a road. (Caveat: Most parts of the trail are currently closed due to sandbags placed to prevent flooding. It is unknown how long the closure will be in effect -- possibly until 2014.)
Southern section of trail is closed due to flood prevention efforts.
