Sunset has named the Sammamish River Trail the best bike path in the West in the June issue of the magazine. The Burke-Gilman comes in at 19 on the list of 20 trails.
It’s not clear what their criteria for a quality bike path is (the Burke-Gilman is certainly a more heavily used transportation corridor than the Sammamish), but all that’s really important is that we beat Portland.
