More Trail Coming; Only Thing Missing is a Bridge

June 27, 2019

Coalition Executive Director Christine Mahler joined project partners June 19 to celebrate the Foothills Trail expansion. The groundbreaking ceremony celebrated the expansion of the Foothills Trail between Enumclaw and Buckley.


“A few short speeches, followed by the tossing of four ceremonial scoops of dirt, launched a new era for the Foothills Trail.

The occasion was a groundbreaking ceremony at the southern end of Enumclaw’s existing trail and the happy news was the beginning of another mile of pavement. Crews have already started the land-clearing process that will see the Foothills Trail extended south from 252nd Avenue Southeast to a point near the White River.

The June 19 ceremony was attended by dignitaries from Enumclaw, Buckley, both King and Pierce counties and the Foothills Rails To Trails Coalition. All were present to tout the anticipated completion of one of the two “missing links” in the Foothills Trail system.”
