Walking Map

The Seattle Walking Map was designed to help Seattle residents and visitors choose a walking route that best suits their interests and fitness level. The routes identified in the map come from a variety of sources including Feet First, King County, and the City of Seattle Department of Transportation and include routes that follow sidewalks, shoulders on quiet streets, and park trails.

This new series of city walking maps divides Seattle into three sections: north, central, and south. Adjoining sections of the map include a limited amount of overlap, should your route cross from one section to another.

Plan your walk

To help plan your walk, all of the routes and paths on the map have been labeled with the approximate amount of time (in minutes) it takes to walk each segment based on its length. These estimates do not account for the steepness of the street, so some routes may take more or less time than suggested.

Seattle streets vary in slope from flat (or almost flat) to very steep. Those streets with a steeper grade have been colored yellow on this map. If an easy route is desired, avoid those streets with yellow shading; if you desire a more challenging and varied route, the yellow streets are for you!
