This is a very short flat trail along an old railroad bed left from Tacoma Eastern Railroad. The trail flora and fauna vary greatly on this short trail as this trail goes beside several natural wetlands and continues into an area where timber was harvested in the last 5 years.
Flora & Fauna
Big Leaf Maple, Cottonwood, Alder, Vine Maple and Douglas Fir make up the canopy of this trail. Horsetail, Colts Foot, Bracken Fern, and Lady Fern are the most common in the herbaceous layer. The wetland areas sometimes hold wood ducks and other migrant waterfowl and deer frequent this trail known only to us by the tracks left behind in the mud. This trail is also great habitat for woodpeckers and those are frequently seen and heard in the area.
