This was a beautiful walk and it can be much longer if you read the signs posted along it. It follows the puyallup river the entire time and generally there are people also using it for exercise. Unfortunately if you stray from the path a bit you might run into some homeless people, and sometimes those homeless people are intoxicated. As a woman with just a small dog for company I recommend that you don't wear anything flashy like a nice watch or bring a designer purse with you on this walk. Only due to the many times I was approached very awkwardly by the homeless and while mostly it was to ask for food or money there were a couple that noted I had a "nice" 50$ watch on while I was running my dog and a leather side satchel. So stick to the path and you're generally fine.

This trail was really confusing. All the maps I found before going didn't actually help me once I was on the trail because so many of the side paths aren't on the map. So you're on your phone the entire time so you don't get lost or you commit to maybe spending more time than you intended. There was someone shooting in the creek area at the bottom as well, so my dog was freaked out for more than half of the walk, which also lead to it running through some ivy and me getting hit with a huge stinging nettle bush when a tree limb came down from a dead tree being disturbed. All in all it was a beautiful walk and would be better if I had a paper map and there wasn't someone shooting.

A friend and I took our kids. We enjoyed all the beautiful nature trails. Took random turns and ended up at the elementary school. We then came back and found the creek. The kids loved that. Found our way back and let the kids enjoy the playground. It was tons if fun for us all!

beautiful trail. A little muddy, but not too bad. Good hike for my dogs. The trail head is easy to find, as you can go in three different ways. Don't follow the address on the site, it'll take you to a neighborhood. Google Clark's Creek Trail, and go in the south park entrance.

Went to this trail, very relaxing walk. Very clean, can be muddy due to rain. Off leash dog park. Playground, pinic tables. Little creek.

Long and flat with not much shade. I wouldn't recommend it in severe heat. It is great for putting in some serious mileage though. Great for biking or running! I'm not sure why this is rated as "difficult", unless it is for mileage.
