Sound to Olympics Trail

WTF?!

February, 2024 by timothydhaworth

The most incomplete trail network ever! I kind of see the vision but it's not even 10% done. Would love information on when more segments are going to open.

Interurban Trail (North)

Great trail! Signage is pretty clear and it's a fun bike ride. I'm going to try some longer trails after this.

Whitehorse Regional Trail

white horse trail

October, 2023 by jemaeandray

Rode the trail from darrington to trafton with a car at both ends on a bluebird day. Blue sky, fall colors, salmon swimming upstream. What a day! Enjoyed the eastern half of the trail a bit more than the western half. It was more wooded and further away from Hwy 530. It was also narrower so difficult to ride abreast. Eastern half is all gravel while western half has several extended paved sections. Don’t know how those decisions were made. Crossed well over a dozen bridges/trestles on the trail. The bridges were slick as snot due to wet leaves so use caution

Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail

Rode west from Ellensburg in September

September, 2023 by slseger

We rented a car one way to Ellensburg with two bikes. Only option was Enterprise and it worked great. Trail started close to downtown. While we had a headwind on day one it made day two easy with considerable downhill. Towns especially Cle Elum were fun to visit. Excellent camping along the trail and bathroom facilities are abundant. While we did the ride in two days, recommend slowing down a bit and doing thee days of riding. Do this ride!

Interurban Trail (South)

Pacific to Kent

September, 2023 by sara_alexandre

We tried to start the trail where it starts off Stewart Ave but found no place to park without risk of towing. So we hopped on at county line rd where there was a small parking area near a duck pond. Most the trail was pretty smooth and straight but some areas bumpy. We chose to merge onto the green river trail and ran into to some of leash dogs but had no incidents. So no bathrooms along the trail that we could see but some restaurants you could stop at if needed. Would be nice if they could link to the Sumner link trail, close but no safe bridge to ride.

Seattle Waterfront Pathway

Amazing Trail

August, 2023 by david664

All along the waterfront - I ride it twice a week - most beautiful trail in and as it completes at the North end turn left and it connects to a 2 mile trail along cruise ship terminal and Smith Cove Park or take a right along the rail yard and connect to the Gilman trail that takes you north to Gilman road protected trail that goes to Discovery park and on the way back drop down to the Ballard locks - most beautiful ride ever

East Lake Sammamish Trail

Busy Trail

August, 2023 by loraleecampbell

Lots of people on a weekday. Beautiful views of lake. Many driveways to cross, use caution.

Scott Pierson Trail

Beautiful Views, No Toll

August, 2023 by loraleecampbell

Do not miss the opportunity to ride over this bridge! Absolutely breathtaking views! There was an earlier review stating there is a toll for bikes, there is no fee for bikes! We started in Gig Harbor at the Cushman trail parking lot. Road over to trail from there and over bridge. Did not do the rest of this trail as it did not have good reviews but thoroughly enjoyed the bridge and views. Although loud from traffic there is a separate path for bikes so you are very safe.

Cushman Trail

Challenging

August, 2023 by loraleecampbell

8-10% grade! Several hills. Very Pretty nice wide path. Road on a Saturday. People using trail but not overly crowded. Also easy connect to Tacoma Bridge trail.
