Mountains to Sound Greenway
The Greenway connects it all
Vast forests. Meadow-strewn mountain peaks. Small farms that feed city markets. Rural communities, keepers of our region's colorful past. Vibrant cities where people want to live and companies want to locate. Broad swaths of land for wildlife to roam. Hundreds of places for skiing and hiking, kayaking and cycling. That?s the Mountains to Sound Greenway. Weaving together the urban and the wild, the Greenway connects 1.5 million acres surrounding Interstate 90, including the 15th-largest metropolis in the United States. More than 900,000 acres of land are now publicly owned, from city parks to expansive public forests. Another 90,000 acres are conserved as permanent private forests.
