Tacoma Nature Center: Second Bridge Loop–Hillside Loop Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Tacoma Nature Center is the city’s hub for education about all things natural, complete with exhibits with a knowledgeable staff on hand to answer questions. But what’s hiding in the nearly sixty acres of woods and wetlands behind the visitor center? Snake Lake, 2 miles of trails, and dozens of species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians that call this place home.

The wetlands and forest surrounding Snake Lake (named for its shape) create a green oasis in the center of Tacoma. The city acquired the site in the 1920s, and since then local
conservationists have worked hard to preserve this crucial
wetland habitat, recognizing it as a valuable asset in the heart of the city. The latest developments were the creation of the Tacoma Nature Center, an important resource for science
education, and an expansion of park acreage."
