While the loops can be confusing (no signs, you have to figure it out for yourself!), my biggest complaint is that no one uses good trail etiquette here. I rollerbladed through and was constantly having to anticipate congestion around every bend. Groups or families with small children and people walking dogs on LONG extension leashes seemed to be the norm. I ended up colliding with an inexperienced rollerblader who let their dog on a long leash dart out in front of me. I had to skate a mile back to my car covered in blood and not one person on the trail even bothered to ask if I was OK. I just don't think this is a good place for anyone trying to get a decent workout on WHEELS.

Very nice area for its location! Skill set was good, we took our Webelos den for the hike, they all did fine!

This is a great "walk" rather than "hike". Beautiful trees. We found 5 geocaches along the way.

The trail can be very confusing and actually used a tracked trail that was on this app to find my way out. Nice wooden area which is hard to believe your in Puyallup. Well maintained.

This bike ride was boring, nothing really to look at. Heavy traffic even for early in the morning. I have never walked this trail, only biked but not a trail I would choose to ride again.

Nice for a quick stroll. Quite a bit of road noise.

Just like others have said, it is not a loop, there is not a lot of shade, it is not difficult (more of a walk/run/road bike trail than a hiking/mountain biking trail).

If you are looking for a difficult hike or mountain bike route, then I would give this one star. But I am giving it 5 stars based on the following:

-The trail is well kept.
-It is a great trail for road bikes, runners, and walkers alike-which is what I was looking for.
-There are a number of places to start from along the trail if you do not intend to travel the full distance.
