A well traveled trail in a mature forest, just minutes from I-5 corridor of Tacoma. This trail is rough and steep. It's not advisable in wet weather or high winds, but when dry you can follow the trail to the top. Along the steep climb up to the shoulder of the creek ravine, listen for the forest birds and forest animals. Several side trails drop down to the stream.
This is not a "rail-trail." For more information on this trail, and other trails in Pierce County, Washington, please see the trail website.
