Foothills Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The foothills of Mount Rainier and the southern Cascades, green valleys, rivers, creeks, eagles and salmon, small happy towns, and families at play—this is the Foothills Trail. The community created this trail and the community enjoys it. Mount Rainier towers above at such close range that you can almost feel its 14,000 feet of rock, glaciers, and snowfields. Surface: Asphalt with a narrow equestrian path. Location: Buckley to Orting in Pierce County."
