Scott Pierson Trail


 This trail runs from near S 25th& State in Tacoma across the new Tacoma Narrows bridge to Stone Drive in Gig Harbor. Navigation on some parts of it may require some thought - the signs will sometimes specify destinations but will not indicate which way the main trail goes. There is no signage near the south end of the bridge. When coming across the bridge to Tacoma, take a left at the light and watch for a gap in the fence within a block to connect with the next section of trail.
The logo honors Scott Pierson, a local trails advocate
