About the Project

Foothills Trail is a 21-mile non-motorized trail connecting the City of Puyallup, Orting, South Prairie and Buckley.  The East Puyallup Trailhead is a very popular spot for people to start their travel along the trail. However, the trailhead parking is inadequate for the number of people using the trailhead. This results in a large number of vehicles parking along the roadway shoulder and other areas.  

This project will increase the parking from its current 26 stalls to 81 stalls.  We’ll also add ADA improvements, lighting and landscaping.  Improvements at the McMillin trailhead in Orting will include updates to comply with ADA standards.
