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 / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
