Green River Trail
The Green River Trail is a 12.1 km multi-use trail used by walkers, runners, and bikers. This trail is flat and easy to follow. While the scenery is more suburban than natural, it’s a nice choice for those in the Kent area looking to stretch their legs without going far.

Route Description for Green River Trail
The Green River Trail is an urban walk along the Green River in Washington. This trail is used by walkers, joggers, and bikers, but it doesn’t normally get too busy. It’s easy to follow and paved, making it stroller and kid-friendly. This portion of the trail is near Kent, but we also offer a guide for the Tukwila section.
The trail begins off Russell Road near the overpass of Veterans Drive S. You can head south along the river as far as W Valley Highway S, or begin from the other end and walk north. Of course, you can also hop on this trail at a point in between and do a section of it. The trail passes through the Riverbend golf course, offering a nice bit of green scenery and a brief respite from the road noise that can be present on the rest of the trail.
The Green River Trail does extend past the given points here, so you’re welcome to keep going for a longer trip.
