First off, this is NOT a loop. Its an end to end from South Prairie to nearly Puyallup. Minus the distance, its all flat besides a small hill and i wouldn't even qualify this as a hike but merely a long walk. Its all paved and well maintained and parallels the highway most of the way. The bridge and river at the half way mark was the main attraction (for me) and I'd consider doing this again with a bike and a few friends for a decent workout. With so many other places to "hike" out there, why waste your time here with little views and a TON of people. Get out in the woods and live.

First time today- had a nice easy run. Am confused some. Can I part my can and run around and end up back at my car?

Not sure why they claim this is a loop or why they call it difficult. For that matter it's more of a walk than a hike, but it was pretty fun. My son,my dog and I walked 6 miles worth of it today. Decent trail. Not a lot of scenery but a nice walking trail.

This trail is very close to my house, so I run to and from it almost daily. The trail can go from very easy to very technical pretty easily, normally because of rain, and depending on which side of the trail you run. The lack of markers makes the trail easy to get lost in which I find more fun. I love the face downhills, the river passing, and the sometimes harsh hills.

There is a parking lot located on 12th St, that is the best place to start. There is also a playground and dog park there. The hike is nice and fairly easy. If you go when it is has been raining be prepared for muddy trails. We didn't do the entire 4.2 miles because it started raining, which wouldn't have been a problem except I was carrying our baby. All in all a fun, easy hike.

I like this one because it is very kid and dog friendly. I like the wide cement paths so my kids can ride bikes and scooters. This is a year round park which is also nice.

Stay on the main trail during or shortly after rain. We were so muddy when we left. It was fun though. Kid and dog friendly.

Nice hikes but the directions don't take you to the right side of the park. It's around the other side about a mile. Good luck finding the main trailhead.

This is a beautiful, in your backyard kind of hike. A good conditioning for the season as your preparing for mountain hiking. It's the kind of hike you can take the little ones on. I just wish they would put up signs so I wouldn't get lost. Lol
