Hiking Wapato Hills Park

Nestled into a residential area in South Tacoma, the handful of trails in this park offer a local place to walk in nature. These paths have been upgraded recently, their biggest features being two boardwalks that go across a wetland in the middle of the park.

There are several places to access these trails, but the main entrance, complete with restrooms, is on the corner of S 64th St. and S. Wapato St. Much of the park borders private property, so be sure to stay within the park boundary.

WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

From I-5, take exit 130 (if coming from the south, take a left on S 56th St. after exiting), then head south on Tacoma Mall Blvd. for 0.6 mile, then turn right onto S 64th St. After 0.2 mile, the park will be on your right. Look for street parking and pay attention to spots that require a parking permit.

Take Transit:

Route 41 stops at the intersection of 56th St. S and Tacoma Mall Blvd, right across from the NE corner of the park.

Route 53 stops at the corner of Oakes and 54th St, which is about 0.2 mile from the SW corner of the park.
