This is a King County Regional Trail, maintained in cooperation with Kent Parks, Recreation and Community Services. The Green River Trail winds more than 19 miles from Cecil Moses Park near Seattle’s south boundary to North Green River Park in south Kent near Auburn. The GRT follows the Green River through industrial lands at the Duwamish Waterway in Tukwila to the broad Green River Valley. The trail provides excellent views and access to the Green River and surrounding river valley. The trail is paved with some short roadway segments.
