Hiking Burnt Bridge Creek - Eastern Section

The eastern section of the Burnt Bridge Creek Trail follows the creek from Meadowbrook Marsh to Devine Road. This section of the trail features meadows and wetlands which host a variety of wildlife, including beavers, deer, and assorted birds. The creek flows through willows, cottonwoods, and red osier dogwood. The understory includes wild roses, spirea, and thimbleberry.

From the east trailhead at NE 92nd Avenue, head west along the wide concrete and paved trail. The trail is in the middle of a wide greenway and a Bonneville Power right of way. The high-voltage power lines soon come into view and the trail follows near the power lines for about half of the trail.

About 0.3 mile the trail passes under 86th Avenue. From there the trail soon passes a junction to the right that leads up to 86th Avenue. In about 0.6 mile farther the trail curves and passes a junction on the right that leads across the creek and past some seasonal ponds to Andreson Road. This junction can be followed by turning right to cross Andreson at NE 18th Street then back to the trail on the west side of Andreson. This loop rejoins the main trail in another 0.4 mile and passes by the Greenway Trailhead. Follow the main trail or the loop westward to the Devine Road trailhead.
