Hiking Tammi Wilson Memorial Trail

Also known as the Gages Slough Trail, the Tammi Wilson Memorial Trail in Burlington is a short hike, about 0.82 miles round trip, just south of the Cascade Mall. It's a nice break of you're shopping in town, just want somewhere to let kids run around, or have a quick picnic lunch during work hours.

Park in the mall parking lot and walk across the road to the trail. The entire trail is paved and wide, so it's ADA accessible and stroller friendly. There are native trees and plants that line the trail, though many are still fairly young so the trail isn't very well shaded yet.

There are benches off the trail in the grass area facing the slough. The trail goes under I-5 to the west and shortly after that is the end of the trail. Gages Slough is to the south of the trail. Blackberry bushes line the trail, and in several places the picking is good.


History: Dedicated in August of 2015, the Gages Slough Trail was renamed the Tammi Wilson Memorial Trail after Tammi Wilson, a passionate cyclist who died from injuries sustained in a collision with a vehicle. The route offers a safer alternative for bicyclists and other recreators, and a plaque at the trail memorializes Tammi and other cyclists who have been involved in accidents.
