An important route through urban King County, this 10-mile paved trail follows I-90 across Lake Washington, linking Seattle with Bellevue.

The trail begins just south of downtown Seattle in Rainier Valley at 12th Avenue S near Sturgus Park. A new link runs through Dr. José Rizal Park on Beacon Hill, with views of downtown Seattle and Elliott Bay. and continues east to Lake Washington, where it crosses the lake on the I-90 bridge to Mercer Island. At Mercer Island, the trail passes through the I-90 "Lid" Park, (now the Aubrey Davis Park) and continues through the landscaped freeway corridor to Bellevue and Mercer Slough Nature Park.

Connecting trails and on-road routes provide access through Bellevue and to points north and south along Lake Washington. The trail ends in Factoria. An segment further east also provides connections from Eastgate. The trail is managed by the Washington State Department of Transportation.
