The EverettSeattle Interurban Trail runs for 30 miles between Everett, Washington, on the north (Broadway at 41st Street) and the Seattle suburb of Greenwood on the south (N. 110th Street). The route follows the old right-of-way used by the Interurban Trolley, which served Ballard and Bellingham in the early 20th century. Most of the trail is off-road but there are a few designated bike routes on-road; signs will guide you.
As the name implies, the trail is a popular connector through an urban landscape north of busy Seattle. It's a great link between businesses and neighborhoods, and even accommodates horseback riders on the segments in Lynnwood and Everett, despite the asphalt surface.
