This flat and easy trail is great for runners, cyclists, and folks looking for an easy scenic hike. One of the most scenic sections for the unobstructed views of nearby Mt. Rainier begins in Orting and follows the Carbon River upstream through farmland and forest.

The trail was in really nice condition, but way too hot for our dogs (85* that day). So we turned around and headed off to another trail. 1.5mi
