Foothills Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A leisurely spin on the Foothills Trail offers a scenic ride through wooded countryside and along a rushing river, skirting small towns and new subdivisions on a trail that gently rises toward the pinnacle of Washington attractions: Mount Rainier. In fact, the trail is a crucial link in getting cyclists to the challenging roads encircling “the Mountain.”

The route is a popular destination for Tacoma cyclists looking for a laid-back outing. Developers call it the “Foothills Trail Linear Park,” but before its rails-to-trails reincarnation, it was known as the Buckley Line, hosting both Northern Paci?c freight and a passenger train from Orting to South Prairie, the current southern terminus of the trail."
