Regional Trails Plan

The Pierce County Regional Trails Plan is published as a component of our Parks, Recreation & Open Space Plan, which was adopted in February 2020. 

About the Project

The Regional Trails Plan vision is a Pierce County trail system that provides:

  • An accessible and seamless trail network used by people of all ages and abilities
  • Practical transportation options
  • Opportunities to connect with nature
  • Links to parks, open spaces, significant environmental features, public facilities, and areas of interest
  • Diverse trail opportunities and experiences including non-motorized transportation, recreation, fitness, connecting with nature, and organized events and races.
  • Connections to major developed areas and attractions within the County as well as connections to the greater region. 


Pierce County manages about 40 miles of trails and walking paths. As a regional trail provider, Pierce County works with partners to expand the regional trail system and identify future opportunities.
