Runner Notes

A paved trail, the loop takes users up onto a ridge with an incline/decline of 13% grade, which can be tough to take at speed no matter which way you're headed.

Description

Chambers Creek Properties is a special, Pierce County public land, area spanning 930 acres. There are many trails, some along the two-mile saltwater shoreline, with beautiful views from mountains to sound.

This run starts on the ridge above Chambers Bay golf course, heading clockwise around the park, golf course and back up onto the ridge overlooking Chambers Bay and Puget Sound. The grade for the hills can reach 13%, users who want to avoid the incline/decline should choose where to park accordingly. This loop also offers views of Anderson, Fox and McNeil Islands.

Train tracks run between the main park area and the beach, users can train-watch during their visit. The area Brochure will have more information.

A note on pets: Pets must be kept on a leash at all times except when inside the temporary off-leash area at Central Meadow or the off›-leash permitted area on the beach.

Flora & Fauna

This trail takes users through forest, along a ridge-line, and down to the shoreline of Chambers Bay and Puget Sound.

History & Background

This location was used for gravel mining for more than one hundred years. It was purchased by the Pierce County Sewer Utility to expand water treatment. The redevelopment plan for this site has been nationally recognized for its balance of public access, government services, and revenue generation (Chambers Bay Golf Course).

The golf course at this location hosted the scenic US Open in 2015.
