Good hills on the north end. Nice for rain when the woods would have you soaked.

Road bikingGreat!

Nice ride on my ebike. Parked at the Gig Harbor police station by the skatepark. No car break ins there lol. Its in the middle of the trail so going across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge to Point Defiance park was close. It's hilly going north towards Homedepot. Been on the trail many times.

I usually park on the Tacoma side of the Narrows bridge at the War Memorial and ride to the Cushman from there. Makes for a great out and back ride. Other rate it low for their cars being broken into; however, thats been an ongoing issue at trailheads all over the PNW the last several years.

RunningGreat!

My car got broken into in the parking lot. Luckily nothing was stolen but my window was smashed. I hear its a common problem in this area. There were some fairly good climbs but I don't like paved "trails." Lots of idiots who don't understand the concept of not taking up the entire path or staying on their side. Probably will not be returning.

HikingNo shade

Northern half has rolling hills but nothing too difficult. No one was wearing a mask but you could maintain 6-10 ft from everyone. Not much to see although you can hear the highway at the southern end. Route is 6 miles one way or 12 round trip.

The Cushman Trail is a nice trail, but the description AllTrails provides is false. The Cushman Trail is 6 miles long, not 12. The photo provided isn’t from the Cushman Trail, which has no boardwalk section anywhere, and The Cushman trail is hilly, up and down, not flat and marshy as depicted.

Nice bike path trail. Cloudy day no GPS to know how far I had gone - had to walk through adjacent parking lot to reach 5K (virtual group 5K).

Paved road, can access from many different points. It was nice because it was warm and sunny. Lots of people walking and everyone was so friendly. Lots of bicycles and strollers. I took my 5 year old and it was easy for him. Also took my two dogs - they weren’t too happy with zero shade. It’s a nice walk - definitely didn’t consider it a ‘hiking’ type of trail. It was well kept and really easy.

HikingNo shade

Just a paved trail. Very hot in the summer with no shade whatsoever. Heavy traffic. Lots of bicyclists who like to give you dirty looks if you get in their way and don’t move LOL. Did it the one time won’t do it again. Pretty boring trail. I prefer the woods with dirt under my feet. Much too crowded. But great for city dwellers/suburbanites who like to push strollers or ride bikes. Great for kids to ride their bikes.

This was a nice walk with friends. I only gave it a 3 due to the fact that this is a completely black topped trail and I really prefer dirt to walk on.

Biking today between rain showers. Beautiful trail, some leaves/needles, but, hey, it’s fall.

I’d say the “easy” rating is off. The hills are significant and long.

Paved trail. Great for road bikes and blackberry picking! This trail is very long and we didn't do the All Trails recommended section because we just drove to where Google said Cushman Trail started.

Trail is fairly easy for those in moderate shape. I'd you're out of shape some of the steep grades may be difficult. Overall it's a good hike.

this is a great trail for pups, strollers, bikers, or runners. there were only a few hills and it was populated, but not too heavily. parking might get tight on a nice day. loved hearing all the birds singing. unfortunately I also heard a lot of construction and cars, too.
