Chambers Creek Canyon is a deeply incised, forested stream corridor between Lakewood and University Place in the South Puget Sound region.
Consisting of 204 acres along a 2.5-mile section of Chambers Creek, the site engulfs trail users in a forested canopy of mature Douglas-fir, western hemlock, and western red cedar. With its thick native understory and the sound of Chambers Creek flowing through the canyon, it creates a unique backcountry experience in the middle of a dense urban setting.
The trail system here is still under construction, but when completed, a series of trails will traverse the length of the canyon. WTA is working on realigning the trail on the Lakewood side of the canyon. In several places the trail drops steeply and then climbs back up regaining the lost elevation. WTA crews are maintaining the trail to keep it on a constant grade and improve the hiking experience.
