A mudslide closed the Burke-Gilman Trail near Lakeside Pl NE Sunday.
Crews are not able to get into the area to fix the issue due to concerns for more slides, according to Seattle Parks:
Seattle Parks and Recreation has closed the Burke-Gilman Trail at NE 117th and Riviera Pl. NE at Lakeside Pl. NE because of a slide.
Parks is unable to get a crew safely into the site to clear it because of the danger of continuing slides from above.
A detour around the slide area is marked.
Parks will provide an update Monday morning.
UPDATE: One reason for the delay is because the slide originated on private property and nobody is home, according to Seattle Parks. The trail will most likely not be cleared before Monday.
