About the project
The 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.
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. You can learn more about this project here.
Upcoming Foothills Trail impacts
In 2023, the Foothills Trail will be undergoing multiple improvement projects to help enhance the trail for users as well as comply with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. These projects will temporarily close sections of the Foothills Trail or trailhead amenities. To learn more, visit PierceCountyWA.gov/Foothills.
