Community of Orting
Orting, WA is small rural city with a population of just over 6,700. Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Rainier between the Puyallup and Carbon Rivers, Orting is a quaint and unforgettable turn-of-the-century village supported by produce and hops farming, the logging industry and its proximity to JBLM. The 20 mile Foothills Trail is paved and meanders through the middle of town and then takes you along the Carbon River levee spreading from South Prairie in one direction to Sumner in the other. While the trail primarily serves for recreation, it is also commonly used for commuting by bicycle for some local workers.
The Orting area is a tight-knit community located southeast of Puyallup, WA and south of Sumner, WA. Its proximity to Bonney Lake, Sumner, Puyallup, Tacoma, Fort Lewis, and even south King County locations make it a perfect residential choice for people who work in those areas, or for military personnel stationed at the JBLM. The community is also in very close proximity to skiing, hiking, fishing and other recreational activities conveniently available in and around Mount Rainier National Park.
