Lots of bikes- good amount of shade. If you start at trail head given here in Orting, you can go left towards the Safeway which is 7.5 miles to the Puyallup trail head with lots of farms and runs along 162. If you go right, it's 12 miles to Buckley with lots of shots of the river and pastures. Both ways offer good views of the mountain. Smooth, easy ride with more stop signs and road crossings than I like. Still a nice ride or walk regardless.

One of my favorite trails for a nice scenic NW ride. Beautiful Rainier views and love the farms it rolls through.

The trees are fully leaved and the trail is cool on a hot summer day.

very nice trail, really peaceful, being next to the river kind of gives you a feeling that you're in the mountains.
