Trails & Ales has traditionally been an informal gathering at a pub to socialize with other trail enthusiasts and learn more about our region’s trail network. However, during the pandemic, Trails & Ales is an online BEVINAR — a webinar you can enjoy at home — with your choice of drink, naturally!


On March 18th, 2022, we featured the Tacoma to Puyallup Trail (T2P) — part of the SR 167 Gateway Project. WSDOT project representatives joined us to talk about this important regional project. They provided an update on the status of its phases, and announced an online open house to solicit public feedback on certain design aspects.

We also discussed using technology to help local jurisdictions develop trails faster. Learn about it by watching the video below:


At Trails & Ales 2020 we had presentations about the Pierce County Active Transportation Plan update and the Pipeline and Parkland Community Trails. Here is a recording of the event:
