University Place 10k Walk

Last chance to do this walk, as it isn't renewed for 2014.  This YR event starts through residential areas of University Place, past Curtis High School and the famous Curran Apple Orchard park, to the new Chambers Bay Golf course.   Breathtaking views of Puget Sound and Carrs Inlet as you follow a paved walking trail along the bluff with views of three islands served by ferryboats and views of the Olympic Mtns. The 12km (extra 2K option) route follows a trail through this Scottish designed golf course. This portion is rated 3 due to steep hills both up and down. If you choose to do this 2k, check with the group to see if they will wait for you as they continue across the upper trail above the golf course. We will pass the Pierce County Chambers Creek properties and New Tacoma Cemeteries before heading uphill back to the start.

This is AVA event Y0367. Dogs are allowed on leash with cleanup.

Directions: From Interstate 5: Exit #130 (So 56th St WEST/Tacoma Mall Blvd.) Follow signs to So 56th St West/University Place. Once on So 56th St, follow it for 3.7 miles to Bridgeport Way W. (So 56th St becomes Cirque Dr W. after crossing S. Orchard St.) Cross Bridgeport and Forza Coffee Co. is on the left adjoining the Precision Tune Garage. Please park in the gravel lot next to Forza Coffee Co.
