Foothills Trail East Puyallup Trailhead Improvement Project starts Sept. 5

Construction of the Foothills Trail East Puyallup Trailhead expansion project begins Tuesday, Sept. 5. During construction, the trailhead parking lot and restrooms will be closed for 4-5 months.

The trail will remain open and trail users are encouraged to consider parking at the Foothills McMillin Trailhead or other trailheads along the Foothills Trail while the project is underway.

About the work
The East Puyallup Trailhead is a very popular spot for people to start their travel along the 21-mile non-motorized Foothills Trail from the City of Puyallup to Buckley. However, the trailhead parking is inadequate for the number of people using the trailhead.

The trailhead expansion project will increase the parking lot from 26 stalls to 81 stalls, as well as provide Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations. New lighting, signage, planting and drainage work, and ADA improvements will also be included in the expansion.
