Shilshole Bay and Sunset Hill

Last Sunday, my husband and I walked from Golden Gardens to Ray's Boat House, crossed the Burke Gilman Trail, then walked north in the Sunset Hill neighborhood until we could wind our way back to Golden Gardens. The round trip was just about 6 miles because of all the dead end streets we covered twice.

Seaview Avenue NW runs along the Bay and was unusually quiet on this cool autumn day. We passed the beach at Golden Gardens, some condos with great views of the Sound (even though it was overcast and the mountains weren't visible that day), Shilshole Marina, a few shops and some restaurants with great views and outdoor spaces.

After crossing the trail and climbing up to the Sunset Hill neighborhood, we encountered a lot of dead end streets but still had some great views. We passed Sunset Hill Park and walked north looking for a street to take us back down to the Sound. We missed the staircase at NW 85th Street so had to navigate the road down by the dog run - not a good walking area.

All in all it was good walk with some hills, a mix of busy and quiet streets and great views.
