Soundview Trail in University Place

Filed under: dogs,photography,tacoma — sparkrobot @ 6:00 pm

Soundview trail The Soundview Trail opened last Saturday, May 5 with a Dog Walk and Fun Run. I did not run, because, um, yeah, that’s just not my thing. We did walk the 3.8 mile paved trail around the new Chamber’s Creek Chamber’s Creek Golf Course which is slated to be opened later this year (June 23rd). I do not golf, but the grass was looking really nice out there for anyone who does.
The trail is described as such:

Located in the northern part of the Chambers Creek Properties, Soundview Trail will meet with Grandview Trail at 62nd St Ct W and at Cirque Plaza making the two trails walkable as a loop.

Also noted:

Difficulty Level: Difficult (grades in excess of 10%)

Dude. I wish I had known that in advance. I think the English Bulldog would have appreciated some head’s up on the grade as well. Deciding to flat out quit at the top of the trail, I had to go get the car to come back and get her. Here are some photos from the trail.


  1. I walked the trail today for the first time. The setting and scenery on the trail is beautiful and we enjoyed our walk today. However, it is very steep and I believe dangerous for bikers and for those not familier with the trail thinking they are going for a nice leisurly stroll. It is a difficult walk-and should be posted as such at the beginning of the trail. A great aroebic workout-but people should be aware and I would also caution about the lack of adequate fencing to protect walkers and runners in certain steeper areas.

  2. Good point Laurel. It is beautiful out there, but to anyone who reads this, a note: it’s STEEP in some areas, especially down near the water.
