Interurban Trail - Milton Trail Section
This section of the Interurban trail runs along a hidden wooded forest on the line between the city of Milton and the southern line of Federal Way. Much of the route is along the East Fork of Hylebos Creek, a glimpse of how this area was once densely forested. This section ends (for now) at the edge of Fife at 70th Avenue E (at the I-5 Fife Curve). Future connections will connect it to the Foothills Trail in Puyallup. But the future DOT Fife curve interchange that will connect Hwy 167 to I-5 will have to be built first.
At the north end of the trail, if you wanted to make a small loop, when you hit S.380th, you can turn west on S.380th. It passes a community park that kids will enjoy, then goes to a dead-end with a dirt trail that drops back down to the paved Interurban Trail. (shown on the map)
The east entrance is at an obscure location at S. 380th Street (see map below). A few cars often park at the edge of the road at this location. The map also shows the street connections from there to the Jovita Station section of the Interurban Trail. The best parking is in Milton, off Porter Way (shown on map).
