This is a beautiful trail in Gig Harbor that is paved. You will see runners, walkers, walkers with dogs and bikers on this trail. It is a great view, quiet and a lovely place to exercise.

We are so lucky to have a trail like this paved so the rain and mud is not a big problem. The topo changes and the sites are great. Along the way grab a coffee at Cutter's Point in Olympic Village depending on the which part you are walking.

Do you want to experience a pleasant walk on a hard surface? Walk the Cushman Trail in Gig Harbor. There are hills, but the path is well laid out. It is a good way to get into shape for the summer hikes.

Love this trail for walking my dogs. Trail is paved, wide and has benches in case you need to rest. The inclines make it great exercise for me and the dogs!

We have walked and biked sections of the trail numerous times since its inception and are finally saying "Thanks!" to all who made this possible.

This is my go to biking trail I really don't know how far it is from beginning to end as a paved trail - I would guess approx 4 miles. I take it to get to the Narrows Bridge which then leads me to surface Tacoma city roads down to Pt. Defiance Park. Depending on where I start it's a... More

Only about 6 miles in length but a variety of hills and flats, a few places where you could get lost when crossing some streets near town. Overall a generally nice trail for walking, biking or running.

This trail continues to develop. The trail runs from the Tacoma Narrows Bridge through Gig Harbor and currently to Burnham Drive (about 6 miles). It is paved all the way, several feet wide and is good for hiking or biking.
