Lake Washington Trail

 Goes from I-90 trail in Bellevue to Renton, partially on off-road trail and some on streets next to I-405. Part of the Lake Washington loop. Watch out for rough pavement near Coal Creek Parkway and occasional "friendly" blackberry bushes reaching for your eyes just north of the border of Renton during the summer.
