Friends of the Burke-Gilman Trail at Sand Point
In its entirety, the iconic Burke-Gilman Trail ribbons its way from Shilshole Bay to Bothell. It’s a 19-mile multi-use trail that carries bicyclists, runners, and strollers away from city streets and escorts them along the Fremont Cut, through the University of Washington campus, and along Lake Washington.
The Friends of the Burke-Gilman Trail at Sand Point are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of “The Burke”. When a construction project in the Sand Point area razed some mature trees along the trail, volunteers stepped in to remove blackberry and ivy and plant native trees and shrubs at the site. They continue to maintain the area and ensure that Seattle’s longest and most popular trail remains green for birds and humans alike.
