Watch: Bob’s guide to biking from the Interurban North in Shoreline to the Burke-Gilman Trail

Bob Svercl (bobco85) is back with another local bike route guide. This time, he’s connecting the Interurban North Trail in Shoreline to the Burke-Gilman Trail in Lake Forest Park.

For anyone who wants to get a good idea of what to expect before trying this for the first time, Bob’s videos are very detailed and include both maps and on-the-street footage. Be sure to check out his other Seattle-area bike route videos, too, as he’s built up quite the archive at this point.

    Amazing! Is there wayfinding signage?

    1. Yes, wayfinding is pretty good. I believe there are signs for all turns in both Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. Here is a map: https://www.shorelinewa.gov/government/projects-initiatives/interurban-trail-burke-gilman-trail-connectors-project

      I usually go east to west on the south connector (the one detailed in this video), and west to east on the north connector (N 195th St) to enjoy the downhill on Perkins Way.

    Really wish the 155th connector was a more pleasant route to get to the burke gilman. I find 155th so stressful with my child enough that i’ll get off as soon as I can and take meandering neighborhood streets. Cars seem to speed way too fast/too close + steep hills make me feel unsafe visibility-wise. Unfortunately I will not be doing much east/west commuting in shoreline with my child as I have yet to find a route that has felt safe for me. So thankful for interurban, really hoping 185th corridor is meaningfully improved with light rail.

    There is a ped-bike bridge over I-5 at NE 195th Street, for a northern connection. I hope North/NE 185th Street has very frequent transit service connecting with Link at the North Shoreline station, so it may not be a comfortable arterial for eight-to-eighty riders. The side streets of Shoreline are fairly calm. The issue is I-5 as a barrier. Shoreline is attempting to build a bridge at NE 148th Street; they are seeking the lemonade recipe for the lemons they asked for in the I-5 alignment for Link. The glaciation left Shoreline and LFP with hills.
