As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, we are all hankering to get outside and spend time on the Seattle area’s wonderful trails. Routes like the Burke-Gilman, Sammamish River Trail and Cedar River trail are awesome car-free spaces for people to get exercise, transport themselves, and simply enjoy their surroundings.
However, more crowded trails mean that safety on trails is an important concern in the coming months. To that end, Cascade will be sending our Bicycle Ambassadors to some trail safety “hot spots” in the coming months in order to both support trail users and remind everyone of some common safety behaviors (alert others when passing, keep pets on a close leash, use lights after dark etc). As we plan this outreach effort, I’m looking for any suggestions from YOU: are there specific sections of Seattle-area trails that could use some extra TLC in the safety department?
