The Green River Trail winds more than 19 miles from Cecil Moses Park near Seattle’s south boundary to North Green River Park in south Kent near Auburn.
The GRT follows the Green River through industrial lands near the Duwamish Waterway in Tukwila to the broad Green River Valley. The trail provides excellent views and access to the Green River and surrounding river valley. The trail is paved over its entire length with some low-volume roadway segments. To the north the GRT follows the river along a riverside landscape and past industrial areas and manicured office parks. Near Fort Dent Park the GRT intersects the northern end of the Interurban Trail then meanders south down the river valley. Office buildings and suburban warehouse landscapes give way to open fields and hedgerows as the trail winds its way along the river. Entering Kent near Brisco Park, the GRT continues past the Green River Valley Natural Resources Area and through the Riverbend Golf Complex. At its south end the trail again intersects the Interurban Trail at Foster Park.
The GRT links industrial lands to pastoral landscapes, parks, communities, and river views. Ideal for recreational journeys and nonmotorized commuting, the trail is highly popular with a variety of user groups. In the future the trail is slated to continue south through the City of Auburn and eventually to Flaming Geyser State Park at the Green River Gorge.
