Clark's Creek Trail

Great hike but as others have said, no trail markers which made it challenging. Hiked during the fall with heavy leaf cover which made it hard at times to know if I was even on the trail. Reviewed this map http://www.willhiteweb.com/puget_sound_hiking/clarks_creek_park/clarks-creek-park-trail-map.jpg ahead of time which was very helpful. I still got lost though and had to back track my steps (gps trail).

Looking forward to going back and exploring more.

A great road bike trail. Now that it has been connected to the Foothills Trail it is even better!

Probably the best paved trail to ride a road bike. And they continue to extend and connect it.

I have started at both ends of Clarks Creek and Fruitland Elementary. The trail is nice. A lot of up and downs and different routes. It is shaded. It is easy for children.

It's a fantastic paved trail to run on. Not a loop, but continues onto Orting and South Prairie! We started our run in Puyallup and continued on for 4 miles, then ran back to the parking lot. It was definitely hot! Not much shade, but if you're on the trail and too hot, there is an organic farm whose employees let you use the facilities and were kind enough to give us water :) Not much in the way of a "hike" but a great paved way for runners, bikers, or skateboarders! I'd also not recommend running alone, at least when we went there were a few cat-callers that could make for an uncomfortable session. Also, it seemed in one area with dense trees, there might have been people living in there. Just always be cautious wherever you go!

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.
