Description Suggest an Edit

The Alki Trail rides along the northern and eastern shore of West Seattle along Alki Avenue. Largely riding on a widened sidewalk, separated from traffic by a parking lane and curb, traffic on the trail is separated for bikes and walkers, providing a less stressful experience for walkers and bikers alike. As the trail turns south, it runs inland toward the West Seattle bridge, which it traverses with a separated biking lane. With a tricky intersection along West Seattle Bridge, as well as high car traffic, this portion should be handled with great caution.

Parking and Trail Access

Street parking on Alki Avenue is available for the full length of the trail. There are a handful of parking lots for beach access and public greenspaces. Parking near the eastern terminus may prove difficult, as it is largely industrial.
