Enjoy exploring Auburn’s beautiful trails on foot, by bike or on horseback. Check out some of our area’s top trails. The popular Interurban Trail parallels the Union Pacific Railroad and runs north to south through Tukwila, Kent, Auburn, Algona and Pacific. It is approximately 17 miles long, with 4.5 miles running through Auburn. The trail can be accessed at Main Street and 15th Street SW, The Outlet Collection and 37th Street NW. The trail is the primary north and south route suitable for nonmotorized travel between valley communities. Roegner Park is home to the White River Trail, which extends along the White River to the Game Farm Wilderness Park for 2.25 miles. It has a wide asphalt path and a soft surface trail for horses. This area is particularly beautiful in the fall when hues of reds, oranges and yellows brighten the trail. The Lakeland Linear Trail starts at Evergreen Way along Lakeland Hills Way and connects with Sunset Park. At Sunset Park, there are several loops ranging from a half-mile to 1 mile in length. Trail lovers can also trek down Lake Tapps Parkway and walk along the asphalt trail connecting to Evergreen Way for 1.62 miles.
