Where to run in Seattle (Washington)

The Arboretum Waterfront Trail in Seattle connects the former Museum of History & Industry to the Arboretum visitors center. It is a unique 0.5 mile long trail that takes you across the largest wetland left in Seattle, on floating walkways, boardwalks, bridges, and through a variety of little-seen marsh environments. It features an observation deck, benches, and several canoe launching platforms. The Arboretum Waterfront Trail starts near the lower parking lot of the former Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) by a trail kiosk, then skirts Lake Washington, passes under the 520 highway, traverses onto little Marsh Island and continues along the north edge of Foster Island. Even in mid-summer the trail could be somewhat muddy, so wear your trail running shoes and be prepared to get a little dirty, even if most of the course is on soft bark. Once you leave the elevated observation platform behind, and arrive on Foster Island, turn left to go to Foster Point or right to continue along the Arboretum trails.
