Ride Description: 

 

This ride from the Puyallup trailhead using the Foothills Trail heads to Orting and then a rolling hill climb to Buckley. There are wonderful views of the Carbon River and the newly re-opened section connecting to Buckley has a great wooden bridge to cross. In Buckley we will ride up to where a future trail extension will connect to Enumclaw. Coming back the rollers will keep the legs warm, until we stop for a donut at Legendary Donuts in Orting

The trail is popular,  we will slow for pedestrians and other bikes.

Restroom at start and at miles 15, 25, 35
