42 mile paved trail will run from Renton to Woodinville and connect to four light rail stations on the east side

Sunday, July 21, 2019

Elected officials and community partners on Saturday unveiled Eastrail, the new name for the emerging 42-mile multipurpose previously known as Eastside Rail Corridor.

They also announced a new nonprofit partner that will help complete its transformation from a lightly used freight rail line to an uninterrupted paved trail.

The trail will reach from Gene Coulon Park in Renton through Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, and extend north to Woodinville and Snohomish County.

It will connect to four light rail stations that Sound Transit will open in 2023 as part of its East Link extension.

“Today, we accelerate our unified effort to complete an ambitious 42-mile regional trail that will connect Eastside communities with a scenic paved path,” said Executive Constantine. 
“Eastrail will offer a convenient, healthy way to get to and from four of the 10 Link light rail stations we will open on the Eastside in 2023."
