Eastside Rail Corridor

The Eastside Rail Corridor is a former rail line that could be the spine of a broad network of trails, parks, natural areas, and community destinations. The Trust for Public Land is working with five cities and two counties on the eastside of Lake Washington to convert the 42 mile corridor into a multi-use trail for walking, biking, and recreation. In addition to its many benefits of connecting neighborhoods, the project provides substantial climate change mitigation benefits by reducing transportation-related emissions.
