Also known as the Gages Slough Trail, the Tammi Wilson Memorial Trail in Burlington is a short walk, about 0.8 miles round trip, just south of the Cascade Mall.
The entire trail is paved and wide, so it's ADA accessible and stroller friendly. Gages Slough sits to the south of the trail.
Walk, Picnic, Sit by the Slough
Benches off the trail face the slough. The trail goes under I-5 to the west and shortly after that is the end of the trail.
Take a break if you're shopping in town and want an easy-to-access grassy area for the kids to run around, or stop to enjoy a quick picnic lunch under the shelter. Enjoy the natural areas along the slough.
Access to the Trail
Park in the mall parking lot and walk across the road to the trail. There is also an entrance off Burlington Boulevard, the corner of Burlington Boulevard and Cascade Mall Drive, and South Goldenrod Road (west of I-5). The east and west entrances are marked with a sign.
About Tammi Wilson
Dedicated in August of 2015, the Gages Slough Trail was renamed the Tammi Wilson Memorial Trail after Tammi Wilson, a passionate Skagit cyclist, who died from injuries sustained in a collision with a vehicle. The route offers a safer alternative for bicyclists and other recreators. A plaque at the trail memorializes Tammi and other cyclists who have been involved in accidents.
