We used this trail to get around on our bikes. Coming from Portland, Seattle-area streets seemed less friendly to bikes, and this trail was fabulous.

I'm sure that people can find things to dislike about the Burke Gilman Trail -- bikers go too fast, bikers go too fast, too many joggers, too many bikers -- but I love it. It's such a great microcosm of our entire community -- sinewy whippets in bike shorts flying by, families with kids on bikes with training wheels, joggers young and old, commuters, athletes, students, even people pulling rolling suitcases! I ride it several days a week, sometimes as a commuter, sometimes for fun, and I always see something new.

Crusing this trail is an easy relaxing bike ride - keep an eye out for the walkers!

Good way to commute/exercise but beware of typical haughty Seattle bikers with an attitude. Many bikers routinely run stop signs at peril.

The trail is well maintained and goes by some of the prettiest views in the area. It keeps expanding so keep checking it out!
