This is a short portion of the The Foster Foundation Trail in downtown Seattle and is 1.2 miles long out-and-back. The trail is highly trafficked and runs directly along Elliott Bay, passing through a small section of Olympic Park. This trail also runs parallel to the Elliott Bay Trail, thus they're almost an interchangeable path if you follow this trail.

The trail is paved and mostly flat with benches along the water and views of downtown, Elliott Bay, and the mountains in Olympic National Park on days with clear skies. Dogs and biking are both allowed.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
