The Interurban Trail is a contiguous trail corridor between Renton and Pacific. At its southern end, connections — east to the Sumner Link Trail, and west through Edgewood, Milton, and Fife — will bring enhanced recreation and mobility options to Pierce County.
Since 2005, ForeverGreen Trails has been involved in coordinating communities in north Pierce and south King counties to develop the Interurban Trail corridor. Over time, several sections of the project have been developed. The north-south portion of the trail has now been completed by the City of Pacific (for which they received a Trail Award in 2020). Now we are embarking on an effort to complete connections to other communities in Pierce County:
City of Sumner - White River Bridge:
The bridge project will support safer bike and
pedestrian movement and connect the
Interurban Trail to the Sumner Link Trail.
It is also connected to significant environmental
restoration along the White River.
City of Edgewood:
This gap entails extending the existing
east-west section of the Interurban Trail
down Jovita Boulevard to connect to the
north-south section of the trail in Pacific.
City of Milton:
Another existing (east-west) section of the trail will be extended to connect with Edgewood.
Combined with the Tacoma to Puyallup Trail and others, this will comprise an 18-mile loop route connecting Fife, Puyallup, Sumner, Pacific, Edgewood, and Milton!
In the future, this corridor will help provide active mode access from Tacoma to Seattle and will also be part of a regional off-street route to Mount Rainier National Park for many in the region!
Please help support our efforts to complete this corridor (and the larger network) by becoming a member of ForeverGreen Trails.
