N 198th Street Trail receives “Adopt-A-Trail” Sign

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Hillwood Community Network is excited to have received one of the first of the City of Shoreline’s new Adopt-A-Trail signs for the N 198th Street trail they have been working on for several years.

This new program encourages groups and individuals to adopt lengths of trails and do maintenance to keep them in safe and attractive condition. The N 198th Street Trail is a street end that was heavily overgrown with brambles and the trail was rough.

After several work parties, the blackberries are greatly reduced and other invasive plants are gone. New native plants have been added and last spring 15 yards of wood chips were spread on the trail itself. Now it is a pleasant, wooded area to walk through and a fine example of what neighbors can do when they work together.

Hillwood Community Network is bounded on the east by Aurora Ave N, on the north by N 205th Street, on the west by 8th Avenue NW and on the south by N 185th Street. They meet the second Tuesday of the month alternating general Meet-ups and board meetings. All neighbors are welcome to attend. For further info: 206-510-2220 or Hillwood website.
