“Foothills Trail is a rail-trail that winds through miles of valley land southeast of Tacoma.”
— Emily Roeben
Portions of the trail are paved.
This flat and easy trail is great for runners, cyclists, and folks looking for an easy scenic hike. One of the most scenic sections for the unobstructed views of nearby Mt. Rainier begins in Orting and follows the Carbon River upstream through farmland and forest.
