There are a number of local resources to guide active transportation around the Pierce County. Our Bicycling Resources page includes the Pierce County Bike Map. The map shows trails and other facilities to help cyclists choose their route. The Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department makes a walking guide of popular routes in the County.
