The Trail in the Swamp

Washington Conservation Corps set pier footings for the cedar plank boardwalk on the Yesler Swamp Trail.

On Sunday, September 21 from 2 to 4 PM the Friends of Yesler Swamp will have a celebration for completion of the first section of a boardwalk in the Yesler Swamp Trail.  The Trail is easily accessible, beginning at the corner of the parking lot of the Center for Urban Horticulture, 3501 NE 41st Street in Laurelhurst.

The boardwalk was built by the Washington Conservation Corps in this first phase of the Trail development.  The boardwalk, made of cedar planks, extends out toward the lagoon and includes two overlooks so visitors can pause to enjoy the view. At the Celebration, there will be guided Swamp Walks and donations will be accepted to help finish the Trail.
