Green River trail at Byron G. Sneva Bridge

The Green River Trail is 19 miles long and starts at the Cecil Moses Park in Tukwila, winding all the way down to the North Green River Park in south Kent. The trail winds through the Duwamish Waterway in Tukwila and guides commuters down to the Green River Valley. There are excellent views of the Green River itself, but also large landscapes of industrial areas and smaller parks. The trail intersects the northern end of the Interurban Trail at Foster Park. With the scenic landscapes, parks, and river views, this trail is perfect for a stroll on a beautiful day.
