The Burke-Gilman Trail runs more than 18 miles from Shilshole Bay in the City of Seattle to the City of Bothell where it intersects the Sammamish River Trail. The trail is a paved, off-road facility over its entire length with the exception of an on-road segment in Ballard. Converted rail trail along Lake Washington in Seattle. Connects to the North Creek and Sammamish river trails in Bothell.

Nice trail for biking, very well maintained with great views of the lake. Plenty of spots to take a breather and sip some water. It merges into Sammamish river trail which makes for scenic ride along the river bank.

I used to live near this trail, so it was neat to revisit the area recently. The BG is part of the Rails to Trails program.
