Recent Trail Reviews

Olympic Discovery Trail - Blyn to Elwha River

ODT – MM20 (Sequim) west to MM0 (Port Angeles)

August, 2017 by adsaxs

We began our 20 mile out-and-back ride at a small parking lot near Gehrke and Wild Current Rds near MM20 in Sequim. The parking lot had space for about five cars. We headed west towards Port Angeles. The first five miles of the trail, which is heavily wooded, was very narrow with sharp, blind curves with a lot of up-and-downs. You would gain some speed on a downhill section only to have to brake because of the narrowness and curviness of the trail and the uncertainty of what was in the opposite direction. This section would not be considered a “rails-to-trail” type of trail.

Once we crossed the Morse Creek Trestle Bridge, the trail widened with views of the strait. This five-mile section into Port Angeles was the nicest section. We stopped near the Marine Center before turning around.

If I were to do this ride again, I would park at the Deer Park Trailhead and cycle into Port Angeles and perhaps check out the path along Ediz Hook. There was nothing of interest for the first five miles to warrant cycling that section again unless you were doing it for the mileage or were traveling the entire trail. There were two port-a-potties along the route and no other amenities.

Olympic Discovery Trail - Blyn to Elwha River

Jamestown S'Klallam Tribal Headquarters to Carrie Blake Park in Sequim

July, 2017 by adsaxs

We began our out-and-back 20 mile ride at the Jamestown S-Klallam Tribal Headquarters off of Old Blyn Highway. There is parking in back of the library or you can park in one of the parking lots at the tribal headquarters. You’ll find bathrooms at the trailhead.

The trail, for the most part, was in very good condition. It varied from narrow and winding to wide and straight. At some points, the trail ran parallel to highway 101 but was often buffered by trees. There is a short section at the beginning of the ride that is on a very lightly traveled road. There are some easy road crossing along the trail.

The ride into Sequim was along Washington Street/Avenue with a short segment on the street before arriving at Carrie Blake Park where we turned around. The tourist bureau is just at the turnoff for Carrie Blake Park. The park in Sequim is a good stop for lunch or, if you prefer, Sequim Bay State Park is another option.

We would recommend this section of the trail.

Burke-Gilman Trail

Wonderful trail

July, 2017 by drgnmage25

Rode round trip ride starting from Blythe Park in Bothel. Started out early morning on a Saturday so it wasn't crowded at all. The trail is well maintained. The trail passes by Lake Washington and the homes alongside the trails are a sight to see. Great spot for pictures and a pit stop at Gas Works Park.
The missing link portion is annoying. I failed to follow the directions listed on the description page for this trail and lost my way. I had to ask some riders for assistance to get back on the trail. Thank goodness for my fellow cyclists.
The only low point would be the one or two homeless people who've pitched their tents along the trail. Other than that the trail is popular and safe.

Olympic Discovery Trail - Blyn to Elwha River

Great trail, but in parts, be very careful!

July, 2017 by acannefax

I rode from the City Pier in Port Angeles, east, for 15 miles. I wanted to go farther, but had time constraints. Most of the ride is great, and I am so glad it is here! I just wanted to comment that around 5 or so miles east of City Pier, there are some quite steep sections - not long, but steep, and they have totally blind and very sharp curves on them, and the trail is very narrow. A recipe for disaster... So - ride carefully, and if you can't see around the curve - go really, really slow. I encountered:

1) Deer
2) Families complete with grandma in a motorized wheelchair and dogs, taking up the entire trail
3) Horses
4) Families with children taking up the entire trail

And - even great cyclists just can't stay on their side of the road when the turn is super sharp and you are going up or down.

Again - a great trail, but be careful while having fun!!!

Hopefully I can do other sections tomorrow!

South Bay Trail

The South Bay Trail

I really enjoyed this bike trail; It has a breathtaking view and my bike ride was refreshing! The trail was short but I biked it twice. I can't wait to go again!

Olympic Discovery Trail East - Port Townsend

Larry Scott - out and back

July, 2017 by adsaxs

We began the trail at the Port Townsend waterfront behind the boatyard. We cycled the entire trail – out and back. The trail is about 7.3 miles one way.

The trail width varies but most of it is narrow. The widest parts of the trail are along easements adjacent to private land since the trail also doubles as someone’s driveway. At about mile 6, the trail gets very narrow and is actually a footpath through the woods for a short distance to Discovery Road. Once you cross Discovery Road, there is a short but steep uphill to the end at Milo Curry trailhead.

Contrary to some articles written about the trail, the trail is primarily packed dirt or crushed stone – no asphalt. The only section of the trail that is paved is the underpass under Discovery Road and Highway 20.

There are three trailheads – Port Townsend Waterfront, Cape George, and the newest trailhead at 7.3 miles called Milo Curry. There is no water on the trail but there are porta-potties at each trailhead.

I would certainly recommend this trail. It has a lot of variety from views of the water at the beginning to rural-like settings towards the end.

Kulshan Creek Trail

Hard to follow

June, 2017 by lisathurm

I think without this map it would have been hard to follow this trail when it is on the surface streets. While the trail is in the green belt it is a nice afternoon walk.

Cascade Trail

Late Spring ride

May, 2017 by shadsmom

Rode this trail over Memorial Day weekend. The weather was lovely, but sadly the trail was blocked about 1/2 mile east of Challenger Rd. There was a landslide and a large tree is blocking the trail. You can't go over ,under or around the tree. Apparently, you can ride up Challenger Rd and get back on the trail. Check a map, before you. do this. Trail needs a bit of cleanup. lots of horse pucks in the middle of the trail.

Burke-Gilman Trail

Multiple Rides During Every Visit to Seattle

May, 2017 by gjswitek

A sunny Sunday afternoon can bring traffic jams on the trail, but most of the time I use it during the week when traffic is much lighter. Have found it to be a comfortable ride with many places to stop and enjoy other activities. Would love to see the local street portion improved to make it safer, and enjoy the newest route through the university much more than the old detour. Have ridden well past Matthew's Beach and like that section of the trail the most. It is quieter and not as heavily traveled.

Snohomish County Centennial Trail

My Birthday Year Ride

May, 2017 by gjswitek

Did the entire trail in both directions plus the extra six miles to match my age of 67. It was a wonderful experience, relatively quiet even when the trail ran adjacent to roads. Loved the scenery, met some very nice people, and the discovery of Nutty's Junk Yard and Grill was worth the 20 mile ride to get there. The deep fried mushrooms and burger did a great job of replacing the calories I burned on the ride. The northbound leg was a bit slower than coming back south so I would recommend starting in Snohomish. Would definitely ride this trail again.

Pigeon Creek Trail

nice quick run

May, 2017 by liza_pavenko

Just long enough of a trail for my 3 year old to bike and me to run alongside. Nice clean beach at the end. There is no trail access at the beginning point, only end point
