A portion of Alki Trail between Riverside and the Port of Seattle Jack Block Park This 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 alik

I've never walked the whole trail through, I just walked a little section of it. This is a nice break from the typical urban Seattle, however it is still quite busy and slightly over-rated. This trail is nice for a stroll or for a run.

This is a great walk on flat and paved sidewalk the whole way. We went 6 miles from starting point out and back. Lots of people today, 5/25/2015, but I can see this would be very crowded during the summer months.

I live in Burien and this is my favorite stroller friendly walk around the area. You can start off in the large parking lot directly across the water from Seattle and end up at Alki Beach. Altogether it is a 3.4 mile walk or run with a 0% incline. The view is gorgeous on a sunny day.
