Pierce County Parks, in partnership with the Cascade Water Alliance, has released a Planning and Feasibility Report for Phase One of the White River Flume Trail. This report identifies the improvements necessary to open a gravel, non-motorized recreational trail facility using the currently closed White River Flume maintenance road between Barkubein Road and Mundy Loss Road. Trail improvements are primarily focused on roadway crossing safety, signage, and hazard mitigation. Parking improvements are not included in this project.
The report also includes an alternatives assessment for a future Phase II that would extend between Mundy Loss Road on the west and Foothills Trail in Buckley on the east. Phase II improvements have not been scheduled at this time.
Pierce County is partnering with Cascade Water Alliance and Puget Sound Energy to open the White River Flume maintenance road for public use as a non-motorized trail facility between Barkubein Road and Mundy Loss Road. This trail partnership will open this approximately 4 mile length of maintenance road as a gravel trail, providing safety improvements at roadway crossings and signage throughout the length of trail. Design and construction will occur in 2021.
