My Favorite Roads in Seattle: The Chief Sealth Trail

Under a canopy of electrical cables, this short but fun little trail that winds through the Beacon Hill and Rainier Valley neighborhoods.

There are plenty of twisty little climbs or descents — depending on which way you are riding it.

Chief Sealth (also known as Chief Seattle) was the Chief of the Duwamish Tribe and obviously is where Seattle got its name.
