Development of the Foothills Trail would not have been possible without
the partnership of the Foothills Rails-to-Trails Coalition, who have
provided countless volunteer hours, fundraising efforts and advocacy for
non-motorized transportation in Pierce County.
Through the many dedicated hours of volunteer labor from the Foothills Trail Coalition and the resourcefulness of Pierce County and city employees, the Foothills Trail is now almost fully paved. Over the past few years, both the improved and unimproved sections of the trail have been in use and have supported major events such as the R2R Rainier to Ruston Run.
