Hiking Puyallup Loop Trail

At 5.5 miles long the Clarks Creek Park loop links six City of Puyallup parks together with a soft-surface hiking trail.

The route includes Clarks Creek Park, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife's Clarks Creek Open Space, Dead Man’s Pond Open Space, Brown Community Garden Park, Silver Creek Open Space and Meeker Creek Open Space.  

WTA helped connect the already existing trails in this area in the spring of 2016. So, while most of the hike is along urban soft-surface trails of varying character, a few short connections between trails use sidewalks or surface streets with little traffic and city sidewalks.

It's a great way to get some exercise and explore some gems within the City of Puyallup.
