Bothell Running Trail
If you want to run in a great natural environment, start from one of Bothell's historical places, the 0.2 mile stretch of the old Bothell Lake Forest Highway, or "Red Brick Road", right in front of the Wayne Golf course
. The Red Brick Road is today all that remains of a road that once connected Bothell's with the ports of Seattle and Everett. The four mile, two-lane highway was finished in 1913 thanks to the one year hard labor endured by Italian and Greek immigrants who laid every single one of the approximately three millions bricks by hand. The Red Brick Road - now a city's treasured piece of history - replaced the wagon road that was cut through the forest to serve early logging activities along the Sammamish Slough. In 1934 the road was replaced by a four-lane pavement highway, known today as Bothell Way (SR 522), but runners can enjoy miles and miles of quiet jogging along the Burke Gilman trail (a trail replacing the railroad originally bordering the Red Brick Road).
