New segment of Lake to Sound Trail opens, linking trails and transit

A new segment of King County Parks’ Lake to Sound Trail opened that will eventually connect Lake Washington to Puget Sound in 16-miles of paved trail.

The trail will connect five South King County, WA cities – Renton, Tukwila, Burien, SeaTac, and Des Moines. It also connects to four regional trails – Eastrail, Cedar River Trail, Interurban Trail, and Green River Trail — as well as three major transit routes: Link light rail, King County Metro RapidRide A Line, and the Sounder Tukwila Station.

“We are strengthening regional trail connections between South King County communities, making it convenient to walk, run, or bike to high-capacity transit,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine. “By connecting trails to transit, King County is making it easier than ever to explore the best places our dynamic region has to offer without having to sit in traffic or pay for parking.”

When completed, the Lake to Sound Trail and Eastrail will eventually connect Des Moines’ shoreline to Marymoor Park in Redmond, and will connect four light rail stations on the future East Link extension.
