"The new trail, besides being a potential boon for recreationists, would almost certainly attract tourists, county planners say. The corridor would connect with the Sammamish River Trail, which in turn links to the Burke-Gilman. It would also tie into the Centennial Trail, which now runs from Snohomish to Arlington.When the trails are complete, an uninterrupted route could be possible from Renton to Skagit County."
