“Bike route”

Best connector and commuter route ever! Good to get off the roads and onto this multi use trail. EVen has signage to get to other places.

“not good for dog walkers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

I have walked segments of this trail through Seattle and really despise the arrogance of cyclists. No one calls out to tell you they are coming up behind you. I walk with my dog and have to be on the lookout constantly. Many cyclists use high speed on this trail.

“Well kept paved trail with lots of nature in the middle of a big city.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

The Burke-Gilman Trail is excellent for cycling, running, or walking. Great way to get around Seattle as opposed to the roads. Safe, clean, and well kept. We really enjoyed using it to get around to various parks in the Seattle area, on our own steam.

“Perfect Trail for Sight-seeing and exercise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Love the BGT - perfect for biking and walking. Its well-maintained and can have high foot and bike traffic during good weather. Great way to get some exercise within the city limits.

Nice to have this great trail to get around on bike. Great to be able to ride past a wide variety of scenery and be close to urban sites.
