Description

Watch and listen to hawks, eagles, herons, and deer. Turn loose the kids (on the play toys) and the dogs (in the off-leash area) in Roegner Park. Go fishing. Play disc golf on the 18-hole course at Game Farm Wilderness Park. Or even spend the night at a trailside campground.

The White River Trail links Roegner and Game Farm Wilderness parks and allows for a peaceful stroll or bike ride along the river. A soft service path runs next to the trail and is open to horses, but is more commonly used by joggers looking to show mercy to their knees.

The river can be accessed at multiple places along the trail. In Game Farm Wilderness Park, the trail passes through a disc golf course that can be busy in the evening. Signs warn, "Watch for flying discs."

It won't take long for visitors to notice that the river seems to have two names: White and Stuck. At one point, the Stuck River flowed south to the Puyallup River while the White River traveled north. However, during a 1906 flood, the White River annexed the Stuck's channel.
