Families are invited to search for six rubber duckies that have been hidden along a 4-mile stretch of the Foothills Trail beginning at the East Puyallup Trailhead and ending at the McMillin Trailhead. Each duck has a QR code on the bottom providing clues to the next duck’s location. Find all six and be entered into a drawing for a fantastic surprise prize!
Here's your first clue - On July 31, start your mighty adventure at the East Puyallup Trailhead then head east as you round the first bend in the trail the first Lucky Rubber Duck will be taking shelter at the base of this tall timber!
