This was a beautiful hike/walk. Lots of small trails off the main trail. I got lost for a second trying to get back to the main trail but found my way back. I followed the trail map from here most of the way as not to end up on a different trail. All in all a great place to visit and i plan to go back again.

Very few people here because of the light snow flurry coming down and the cold temperature. A nice quick quiet walk on the gravel path on the way home from doing errands.

Excellent, just a little slippery after a rain.

I only hiked the north end of the park. Because the trail isn't marked at all and there's no view out to see where you are, one could easily get off on the many side tracks. I had to carefully note things at junctions in order not to get sidetracked on the way back. There is a large parking area, picnic tables and a grass play area with bathrooms and trash bins nearby. There is a dog park to the north of the parking area accessed by 12th. In the wet season, I imagine the trails will be slick and running with water. This is a good park if you just want to get your boots in the dirt on a dry day and you happen to be nearby.

Great paths for different terrain and views. Royal, our GSD loves it and all the water. Beautiful!

If you don't know this park it is extremely easy to take an offshoot that is not the main trail due to no trail markers at all. The main trail itself is decently maintained until the upper part of the loop where the brush badly needs to be cut back. Use the All Trails app with the map and you'll be just fine.

Nicely maintained trails but no map or signs on trails. After an hour of wandering around with kids we left to try somewhere different.

It is a nice trail but nothing is marked and there are several different paths. If you are directionally challenged like me it is a bit confusing. The nature is beautiful tons of trees. The trail is rather muddy so I would suggest water proof shoes and a change of clothes if you have small children like me.

I went a few times once in the summer and another time in the winter. It's much more fun in the summer and when you go off the paved trail into the wooded area.

Abbot muddy after a pretty rainy day, but a nice walk. Periodic views of the creek makes for some nice scenery.

Great hike. Cool and breezy feels amazing with a 20lb backpack on my back.

Great rural trail right in the middle of Puyallup downtown. Lots of hills, probably muddy in the wet season. It's easy to get rather lost in some of the woody areas, so don't try it too close to sundown. There is also an off-leash dog area, but most people were walking with their dogs off leash anyway. great for the pups.

Been awhile since I had a good hike so I didn't want to over do it with distance. But I did a lot of hills to increase the workout.

Lots of different elevations and side trails to explore. Walked for two hours - only about 1/3 of it was on the main trail, by choice. Hikers, pick up your trash and dog poop!

I do this trail all the time. My 4 year old son has done it with me. Good amount of exercise and great views if you know where to look. :-)

Kinda warm but also breezy at times so it wasn't bad. 3.2 mile hike with some gps notes and I accidently deleted the track before I could save it...grrrrr.

I made a lot of gps notes for others to follow and a took a picture. I'm exhausted! Wow what a loooong hike but it was AWESOME! Happened to find the dry creek bed I had been looking for and hiked it for quite awhile through some brush and over log jams. Now that I know how to get down to the creek I can explore it more later. Will have to make a day of it though, start early and bring food and water.
