Burke-Gilman Trail – Seattle’s favourite bike trail

When it comes to biking in Seattle, there is one name you will hear from everyone in this town and that is the Burke-Gillman trail. This is the longest dedicated biking trail in Seattle and is 19 miles one way. It starts in the Ballard neighborhood and goes to all the way to Kenmore. The best part about this trail for me is that it goes around Lake Washington, which means you are riding next to the water while passing through different neighborhoods in Seattle. It also has many food joints, bars, coffee shops, beautiful houses, breweries and wineries on the way for me to make small stops at.

This is pretty much my routine every weekend in summer. The trail passes through Fremont neighborhood and university district, which has nice food joints, bars and coffee places that are biker friendly. My personal favorite stops are Cafe Turko, Miir Flagship and Big State Burger. I also sometimes stop at Nine Yards brewery at the end of the trail, which has good live music, food and of course beer. If you go a little further from Kenmore you will hit the Woodenville, which has a bunch of wineries which makes the biking more exciting. There is also Fremont Farmers market on the way every Sunday where you’ll find really delicious food trucks to try while sitting next to the lake.
