Sumner Urban to Mountain Trail Sections #1 and #3

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

This project constructed section #1, approximately 2600 feet of 12-foot wide paved trail along the southeast bank of the White River in the core of Sumner, the western limit of which will connect to an existing trail at the confluence of the White and Puyallup Rivers. This project also constructed section #3, approximately 2,140 feet of 12-foot wide paved trail along the east bank of the White River just north of the core of Sumner. This trail is a vital link of two important sections of the Sumner/Pacific Master Trail Plan which connects the Interurban Trail, Puyallup River Trail and the Foothills Trail.
