Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Indian Summer

September, 2022 by bbbthere

Stayed at cabins at mid trail…cabins are small and clean…showers/bathrooms close… though went at mid-day, the trees make the trail eerily dark, headed to Veronia first (~12 miles). Short distance to hilltop (switchbacks and short), then pretty flat. In Veronia, loop around lake. After back to mid-point from Veronia, all downhill, then flat. Huge open field is highlight here. Tressle was goal and cool, but overrated. From Banks (the return way) chunk is all uphill. At trailhead (downhill and fast from cabins), you then must make it back up to cabins which is ~half mile and pretty steep.. drained my battery…battery drained just short of coasting down into cabins. downhill into cabins.

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

South Bend to Raymond

September, 2022 by chloesgrandma

Rode from South Bend to past Raymond yesterday. There are lots of tree roots making it dangerous. Once you get past Raymond it is fairly smooth and asphalt for about a mile then it turns to gravel, which was much smoother riding. Trouble is after a couple of miles the trail is no longer navigable. All broke up with chunks in it. I wouldn’t hike it at that point. Why aren’t our tax dollars being used to keep it usable? Grays Harbor County and Lewis County deserve a better trail.

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

South Bend start.

September, 2022 by chloesgrandma

We started in South Bend and went as far as we could to Heckard Road. The trail comes to an end there. Past that point it is impassable on a bike. From South Bend to Raymond is very lumpy, close to dangerous. We crossed the highway in Raymond and the trail was pretty good even though it turned to gravel after a mile or so. The gravel was smooth. We wouldn’t do this trail again. We plan to try other sections.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Fun and Beautiful

August, 2022 by ednprod

I read a lot of the reviews and some said the road was not paved well, pot holes etc…overall I felt the road was fine. All issues are clearly marked so you are aware of them. People are all respectful of others on the trail. We liked it so much we are doing it again tomorrow. It is fun, beautiful and we appreciated all the spots to stop along the way.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Dire Need of Resurfacing

August, 2022 by vidmar

I rode the trail from Banks to Vernonia (21 miles one way) and back with some extra explorations for a total of 49 miles on a Trek Dual Sport. The trail is a beautiful trail migrating through the woods. It does have a long 7-mile uphill that starts about 5 miles into the ride, but it is not a serious grade. That said, my lady will tell you that it is uphill for a long time. There is one very serious switchback trek that is about a 10 percent grade. It can be done, and it is fairly short. Overall, getting to Vernonia was a good ride, but anticlimactic once I arrived. The best part of this ride is going through the woods. However, where I would probably give the ride a 4/5 rating, the condition of the path destroys much of the beauty. If you are not paying attention, you just might go down. The condition is dangerous especially on the 7-mile downhill. Why? Because a large portion of the path was done with chip seal. If you do not know what it is, see: https://www.bicycling.com/rides/a21074245/why-chip-seal-is-absolute-worst-surface-for-road-riding/

Beyond the horrible chip seal surface is the degradation of sections that have morphed into craters and potholes. If that is not bad enough, every bridge is between 2" and 6" higher that the path surface. If you do not brace yourself, good luck.

Bottom line, I am sad that the trail is listed as a must and one of the best in Oregon, but it does not warrant that billing in the present day condition.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

RT....Stub Stewart State Park > Vernonia, OR and back

August, 2022 by dianev22

One of our favorite trails! Some challenges (hairpin curves, occasional tree root cracks), mostly shady, wide cement path & goes into a park/lake/campground @ Vernonia, close to a grocery store for ice cream & rest before heading back!

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

The most poorly maintained trail in Washington State so far

July, 2022 by jworobe

This trail is the most poorly maintained in the State!

The vegetation along the trail is severely overgrown. In places from Adna to Rainbow Falls the center of the trail is overgrown by weeds and grasses. In others the blackberry bushes have formed a gauntlet so that the path is just wide enough for a single bicycle to ride past without risking a puncture.

The bridge abutments all along the path have steep gaps. A cyclist going at any speed risks going head over and at the very least a bent rim.

There is a fallen tree, that has obviously been there a while, over the path at chest level of most riders. Any cyclist going at speed risks being close-lined.

Most of the trail is deep, loose gravel. It is difficult to get traction or maintain balance while riding there.

The barriers to automobile traffic are placed at irregular widths so that there is very little room to get by. I ride a recumbent trike and without exception my mirrors were out further than the pylons. It is my understanding that all public areas have to have openings at least as wide as a standard wheelchair. It is not the case here.

I brought this information to Washington Parks Department attention and ended up in a voicemail maze.

It is a shame that the only place that should be safe for cyclists in Lewis County is in such poor repair.

Astoria Riverwalk

Not what we expected

July, 2022 by qnphbsdy5t

The Astoria Riverwalk was not good for biking. The boardwalk section was very poor - the slats were definitely not good for road bikes - too easy to get caught in between. In addition, there were trolley car tracks that also made it difficult to ride safely. I went over the tracks and fell - I didn’t get hurt too badly but it spoiled the ride. I got back on my bike and rode for awhile but my enthusiasm for the trail disappeared quickly. I would not recommend this trail for anything but walking.

Discovery Trail

Nice Trail

July, 2022 by mwskibike

Second time riding this trail. Don’t know how we did it 2 years ago without e-bikes! Started at north end and rode south. Lots of hills and curves - use caution as you can’t see far ahead. Wanted to go to Ilwaco, but was not able to determine where the cut-off is to go there. Assumed trail was paved all the way there, but only found a narrow gravel trail from a parking lot - map at that location did NOT have a “you are here” tag, so we didn’t know where we were.

Discovery Trail

Best Trail Ever

July, 2022 by loraleecampbell

What a wonderful ride. Started up a steep hill from Ilwaco but beautiful forest and paved path! Crossing 101 was a steep downhill on a dirt path, but easy to navigate. Next Parking area pathetic returned to paved, fairly flat and headed to the ocean. Beautiful easy ride from here. Lots of restrooms. Path in great condition! Coming back we went to Discovery park and saw the lighthouse. From her ewe to the main road down to the campground and then back to the town of Ilwaco.

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

First timer

July, 2022 by mwskibike

First time on this trail. Rode from South Bend to the north edge of Raymond, then east a couple miles going toward Chehalis. Lots of bumps from tree roots on the paved section. Going east toward Chehalis, the trail is being overrun by plants growing wild. Lots of wild blackberries and those vines are prickly.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

My favorite trail

June, 2022 by melly77nyc

I lived in Vernonia for over 6 years. I ran almost daily and biked quite a few times, on the BV trail. It’s absolutely beautiful and well maintained. I never ran the whole way but I did bike it. Down near Banks there are some great blackberry bushes if you feel like picking some berries. The only complaint I had is it’s mostly flat (it was a rail line) except for some obscene hills right in the middle. Somewhat ample parking available in Banks & Vernonia. I moved, and am enjoying the rail trails in Massachusetts.
