This 4- to 7-km-wide east-trending fault zone extends from the Cascade Range foothills on the east across the Puget Lowland to Hood Canal, crossing Lake Sammamish, Lake Washington, Puget Sound, Bainbridge Island, and the Kitsap Peninsula. Various strands of the fault zone lie largely concealed beneath the major population centers of Seattle, Bellevue, and Bremerton. It forms the northern boundary of a belt of bedrock exposures that cross much of the Puget Lowland.
