How to Get Involved
About the Project

Pierce County Parks is designing a paved, non-motorized trail along the Tacoma Water Pipeline between 72nd St E and 94th Ave E. This trail will provide an important connection between existing City of Tacoma trails and South Hill’s Nathan Chapman Trail.This trail will provide opportunities to enjoy a new place to exercise, commute, or take in the view of Mt. Rainier.

Later connections will be explored to include Meridian Habitat Park, the Hopp Farm, Hundred Acre Woods, and ultimately to the Foothills Trail.
