True to its name, the Cross Kirkland Corridor traverses the city for nearly six miles, connecting eight neighborhoods, four major business districts, more than a dozen parks, and several public schools. The trail has the level grade of a typical rail-trail, is well-marked, and has many well-shaded sections.
Google, a major employer in the area, has a campus in the Houghton neighborhood. As the trail traverses the campus, it provides access to Feriton Spur (747 6th Ave. S.), a park which offers a playground, zip line, exercise equipment, basketball and volleyball courts, and a historical caboose.
The rail-trail is part of the developing 42-mile Eastside Rail Corridor network, stretching from Renton to Snohomish. The railroad line was built in 1904 to haul coal and lumber, but later expanded to agricultural and industrial freight. In Kirkland, the rails and ties were removed in 2013.
Parking is available at Crestwoods Park (1818 6th Street) and Terrace Park (10333 NE 67th Street).
