The outdoors are for everybody — and there are plenty of hikes in our area that are friendly to wheelchairs, strollers, and other mobility aids. Get some fresh air on three of our favorite accessible trails.

Myrtle Edwards Park to Elliott Bay Park, 3130 Alaskan Way
This paved path offers views of the waterfront, trains, boats, and the nearby sculpture park. There are separate paths for hikers and bikers, and the trail is relatively flat at a 3% or less grade.

Seward Park Perimeter Loop, 5900 Lake Washington Blvd. S.
This 2.4 mile loop is the place to go if you’re looking for outdoor time with minimal elevation and lovely views.

Centennial Trail, 32325 WA-9, Arlington
The flat path includes several trailheads that have accessible parking and ADA compliant Sani-Cans.
