We are excited to announce that the new Arboretum Loop Trail on the west side of Azalea Way will open to cyclists and pedestrians on Friday, November 10.

In the Arboretum, cyclists are welcome only on the new Loop Trail and other paved paths.
Please observe the 10 mph speed limit and yield to pedestrians.

Construction work is ongoing with many small tasks remaining along the mile of new trail. Trail users can expect crews along the length of the trail over the coming months. The Birch Parking Lot will remain closed to the public as we continue to move material and equipment.

More information can be found about the trail project on the City of Seattle ALT Project Page. A celebration is planned for April 2018. Stay tuned for details.
