This urban trail is one of the ones listed in Craig Romano's Urban Hikes: Seattle guidebook. It takes us through several parks, through the Mount Baker tunnel and along the I-90 highway across the lake to Mercer Island and back.

This hike is good for those who are a bit slower when hiking. We don't have to win any races, but just enjoy being outside!
