Seattle trails now on Google Street View


View Larger Map

Upon hearing the news that Google Street View now features Seattle’s multi-use trails, I figured I’d pop by Google’s trail-side office in Fremont, and look who I found!

Street View on bike trails is awesome. Not only is it useful for planning your route, but it’s fun to see all the people smiling and waving at the Street View bike as it rolls by. For example, here’s someone on the I-90 Trail giving the camera a hang loose sign:

And it’s no wonder people stopped to stare, when the Street View trike looks like this:

So now your goal is to spend hours trying to find yourself and your friends our on the trails. Bonus points if you can tell when they were taken. If you find someone you know or something interesting/funny, post the link below.

      Except the map says Redmond/Sammish River Trail, and the location is actually in Fremont!

        Yeah, Google Maps keeps the location you start your exploring, no matter where you end up.

      2. Sammish? Doesn’t exist. Samish is in Whatcom County, but Sammamish is probably what they’re lookin’ for.

    What is the purpose for this? The whole point of trails is so you can go and enjoy them. You don’t need to look at their pictures on a website.

      What is the purpose for leaving lame comments on a bike blog? The whole point of bicycles is so you can go outside and enjoy them & not worry about what bicycle blogs are posting. You don’t need to look at websites to have fun, go outside, ride a bike and stop complaining about how people utilize internet based tools for planning their trip.

    My coworkers and I are at Burke-Gilman Trail and university way NE. We saw the trike last summer and I’ve been waiting for this!
