Willapa Hills Trail

Quiet and peaceful trail - Chehalis Trail Head to Rainbow Falls State Park

November, 2020 by divingmecrazy

We were blown away by how nice this trail is and all the fall colors still are popping. You might want to keep an eye out for horse poop piles hidden in the leaves, and was fun to see mixed use of this trail. I would have expected more people on this trail and will be back to section ride this trail to the coast.

Rainbow falls state park was a great spot to rehydrate and refuel before riding back. Take time to find paths to view the falls.

Overall, this trail was in great condition and a flat trail. Be mindful of the gaps between the gravel and bridges. I ended up breaking a spoke on this ride.

Willapa Hills Trail

Chehalis to Adna 11/1/2020 Bicycle

November, 2020 by zasse

Paved portion of the Willapa Hills Trail is short, 5 1/2 miles, narrow and not well maintained. There are spots where it is so overgrown that it would be tight for passing.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

My expectation were too high for this trail possibly

September, 2020 by moscowsharon

I didn't like how one direction was mostly uphill and the other direction was mostly downhill. I like a little more variety of up and down in each direction. And although it was pretty, I'm I don't understand why this trail is so popular.

Willapa Hills Trail

South Bend to Raymond

August, 2020 by dennis10406

Started in South Bend. From there to Raymond it was just ok. Along the highway. At Raymond the trail actually goes on an old rail line but it is seldom used. This is mid August so the blackberry bushes are over the trail and we actually woke up this morning with a flat tire caused by a thorn. I heard this trail was nice and saw nice pictures but not at the west end.

Warrenton Waterfront Trail

July, 2020 by debimiller9_tl

Very hard to navigate and had to ride on the highway. Saw 2 otters and a deer but just ok ride.

Lovely trail not even too crowded on a Sunday. Well marked and very shady

Discovery Trail

Clean and smooth ride

July, 2020 by ravhuy

Great ride along the coast. I very much enjoy this trail and recommend it.

Crown Zellerbach Trail

Unimproved along sections, and some muddy spots. But gorgeous. Everything the Banks Vernonia LT used to be before it was paved and became a bicycle race track.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

A great trail for walking or riding. Lots of families. Beautiful scenery. Watch out for high speed bike riders who fail to yield right of way to others.

Discovery Trail

3 Star due to Trail near Ilwaco

April, 2020 by vrse316

We started the discovery trail from Ilwaco - riding bikes (ordinary bikes not mountain bikes or racing bikes). The trail is very curvy with up and down hills that make for dangerous turns... too sharp. Also, the trail was tediously difficult uphill - we could not ride uphill - you have to walk it (by the way - please do not do this at night)! We went in the AM and were very glad it was not dusk... we had to walk uphill panting - and worried about cougars. You are alone in the wilderness area with no chance of good cell coverage... walking up a mountain side. When you do reach the road - there's an overlook that is very nice - however, things are not marked well and we were not sure (we heard the trail goes down to the beach through the woods again... but, we opted to take the road into town and catch the beach trail from there). Will say the beach trail is very nicely done and more manageable - the Ilwaco length is treachery. Be careful.

Crown Zellerbach Trail

Best in the dry season

February, 2020 by spitchgrizwald

Ran half of it (from Vernonia) with a friend today (2/27), and it was very muddy. We had fairly appropriate tires, but full mountain bike knobbies would have certainly helped. The trail would be much more enjoyable after about three rain-free weeks. The first stretch out of Vernonia is pretty steep, but once you cross the paved road it levels out a lot. One other thing to note is that if you ride the paved road on the return leg, the chance of an encounter with an angry motorist is pretty likely. We had several.
