Walk-n-Talk to the Overlook in Gregory Heights


Whether rain-or-shine, our April Walk-n-Talk will wander around the southern hilltop area of Gregory Heights, to the overlook, hoping we can look out to a stunning view of Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier. This month’s walk will be led by Gary McNeil, the Des Moines Walkers leader and a former Burienite. (Thanks, Gary!)

16201 16th Ave SW, Burien, WA 98166
Who: Open to all walkers. Be aware that the route slopes downward and then back up again, so it’s got some hillier areas than many of our Walk-n-Talks. Walkers are welcome to do all or part of the walk, and all may walk at their own pace.

  • Take a right onto SW 170th St., around some kinks in the road until we get to 28th Ave. SW.
  • We hope to take in the beautiful views from high on the hill, then turn right onto 28th Ave. SW
  • Head north as the road turns into Marine View Drive SW.
  • Turn right at SW 164th St. and go down the hill 1 block.
  • Turn left onto 19th Ave. SW and circle up around the block.
  • Turn right onto SW 160th, then right onto 16th Ave. SW,
    back at Gregory Heights Elementary School’s east entrance.

Distance: About 2.5 miles round trip.

WNT-Gregory Heights Loop Group1

This is a FREE event and is enjoyable for all, including four-legged friends. Every month since August 2011, neighbors and Burien city visitors have gathered, walked and talked for fun, conversation and exercise. Come join the group! Chat with someone you wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to meet with. If you have a pedometer or other sort of step-counter, bring it along. Let’s see how many steps we can tally.

Check out our tip sheet: “Start Walking for Health and Well-Being”.
