Chambers Creek Canyon Trail Development

Category Overview

Trails grants help communities and recreation areas fund the creation and improvement of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. These grants help make communities more livable, create regional trails systems, and open up beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy. WWRP is the largest source of trail support in the state of Washington.

Project Highlights

Pierce County will construct a 1.2-mile section of pedestrian trail through Chambers Canyon that will connect and improve existing trail segments on either side of the canyon and will include a 140-foot pedestrian bridge, a small foot-bridge across Peach Creek, 1,970 linear feet of boardwalk, and a trailhead along Zorcon Drive. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is hiking.
