About Orting

Title separator

No visit of Western Washington is complete without a visit to one of the state’s oldest cities, Orting. Nestled in the foothills of Mt Rainier between the Puyallup and Carbon Rivers, Orting is a quaint Turn-of-the-Century village that you will not forget. The town center is anchored by three parks filled with giant maples and evergreens. You will be awed by the view of Mt. Rainier from Washington Avenue.

The levees on the east and west sides of town are perfect for hikes along the rivers. The 25 mile Foothills Trail meanders right through the middle of town and then takes you along the Carbon River levee. Bike, walk, take the stroller and the family pet. Enjoy the turn-of-the-century architecture of downtown and eat at one of the many great restaurants. And many of our sponsors are located right in Orting, so please, visit their established businesses while you’re in town.

The Orting Marathon events will begin next to the Orting park, at the Eagles club building. They will continue south and eastward on the Orting trail, with the longest of the events going to Buckley via the new addition to the Orting trail. We look forward to seeing you there on June 30, 2018, and for years to come thereafter!  Register Now
