John Wayne Pioneer Trail

Rugged but great adventure

February, 2017 by johnwaynepioneertrail

We rode the whole trail from the Idaho border to Cedar Falls in 2016. It is not true that "145 miles" of the trail are closed. There are some detours due to missing trestles, a section of live rail, and short sections of private land. There are no plans to close the trail through the Yakima Training Center. The JWPT is a great way to explore Washington's geography and history through areas not seen from a car. We passed through without any disruption or trespass, and with barely any notice, although we did meet some very friendly people along the trail. We only left behind money we spent in small towns along the way, including those on the detours. For more accurate information go to www.johnwaynepioneertrail.org.

John Wayne Pioneer Trail

Not complete

December, 2016 by zhombie.com

There is over 145 miles of this trail that is closed. When trespassing it I is a 400.00 fine. Also you must contact the owners to cross miles of private land that is owned out right. I do know the owners and they are tried of all the trespassing. So they closed their land. Also waiting for the army to close more near the range on base.

Beautiful scenery but a jolting ride!

October, 2016 by wreinsel

Did this trail as part of a Bicycle Adventures supported ride with 4 others in August of 2016. The scenery is beautiful but it is a jolting tough ride. Further along it does get better and it did help that we started at the top of the mountain and rode down hill. Uphill would require some serious thigh muscles. There is a tunnel along the trail and it is very cold (50 degrees F) and very dark. We had lights on the front and back of several of our bikes and it was still disorienting. This tunnel and the whole trail is best done in a group with lots of spare tubes!

Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail

Excellent Riding

September, 2016 by tim.luke

Just spent a week in downtown Wenatchee on business. My hotel was a couple blocks from the trail so I brought a hard tail MB and explored the area.

1st ride went north around the 10 mile loop. It was a great trail with perfect weather, little traffic and amazing scenery. Never seen so many quail.

2nd ride was 24 miles north to the dam and then back around the loop. Left mid morning and had quite a few miles to myself.

3rd trip was 18 miles out and back south to hydro park. Again, perfect weather and expansive views of the gorge and mountains. Saw more wildlife than people.

No problems with goat heads or flats so maybe they swept the trail as suggested.

I'm planning on taking my family over there next summer to vacation.

John Wayne Pioneer Trail

Rattle Snake Lake to Renslow Sept 15-16, 2016

September, 2016 by 6ftwav

I Rode solo East from Rattlesnake Lake on Sept 15 headed for Cle Elum for the night. When I first entered the trail at Cedar Falls Trail head the first thing that I noticed was this was not the beginning of the line. There was trail behind me at the entry point! This would have to be explored another day. As I headed up the trail towards the Snowqualmie tunnel I observed mostly packed gravel. About every 5 miles there was a pit toilet building and a picnic table nearby. Sometimes a leveled area marked by 4x4s for a tent was included. Later I observed these amenities continued all the way to Ellensburg though the spacing seemed to be less frequent after Cle Elum. The park map would be the best source of these locations. I encountered maybe 12 people between trail head and Snowqualmie tunnel mostly hikers. Since I had traveled the tunnel from Hyak once before I knew to bring a headlamp for the darkness and warm clothes for the cold. Once through the tunnel the climate seemed different, warmer and a bit drier. Trail composition become that of looser gravel so that my hard tailed mountain bike seemed to float around as I moved forward. Some might find this unnerving but I was able to adapt by keeping my speed up. This surface condition continued all the way to Kittitas (when on the trail). I spent the night at a motel in Eastern Cle Elum. I might have stayed further west if I had known that I would have to backtrack to get back on the trail but then I would not have seen the rest of rather interesting town if I had stayed west.

On day 2 entered a beautiful canyon along Yakima river. I encountered two cattle on the trail that seemed to be lost (near turkey gulch). Next I came to the tunnel with the waiver sign but no forms in the form box. A few had written names on the box itself. I assumed that this was no longer important or there would still be forms available, right?. The next tunnel did not ask for a waiver - recently fixed? It appeared to have been worked on. I Only saw a few people on the trail from here to the detour past Kittitas. Cyclists wanting to go further east should know that while there is a detour sign at Prater road, The trail is closed all the way to the other side of the Columbia River (unless your choose to ride the 3 miles to the first closed trestle over I90 and backtrack). One might as well go from here to Vantage on the road in order to get to the next open part of the trail. My ride ended in Vantage. I was driven down to Beverly Junction just to see the trestle and check the trail conditions. What I found was a barbed wire fence between the road and the JWPT. I had read about sand on the trail so wanted to actually set foot on to check the condition. What I found was harder trail here than what I had left (I slipped thru the barbed wire). Had being unused allowed the trail to harden or was the sandy section elsewhere between here and Renslow? Some other lucky person will have to find out the answer to that question! Great ride!

Rollerblader's delight

September, 2016 by jawat338

I come to town on business every few weeks and always plan on doing a round of the loop at least two times during my stay. It's awesome. Especially the new section heading north. There's not many places you can do almost 20 miles of uninterrupted blading. Fantastic!

Nice Little Loop!

September, 2016 by yaugie

Rode this nice little loop in late August. Surface was excellent and as noted it was a little hilly in spots. We were just passing through so we needed to rent bikes. Found Arlburg Sports, right by the trail in the Public Market. Very convenient, and reasonable too....$20 for a 2 hour rental. The only negative...rented one of their Black 'Simple' bikes...had 7 gears but you wouldn't know it had more than one. Made for some more difficult than expected riding. But...I probably needed the exercise...

John Wayne Pioneer Trail

Great Trail ride

August, 2016 by kenwlund

My son and I have been on two segments for a total of about 60 miles from Easton toward Seattle. Scenery=A+Difficulty=EasyTrail Condition=3 on a scale from 0 to 5, 5 being new and paved. Trail tires are a big plus here. Lots of loose gravel. The tunnel near lake Kachess is a great experience. great for nature and site seeing or picnicing form hiking/biking. There were a couple of very small and rustic remote camp sires as well. highly recommend this trail. it is flat in general. A bit of a down slope headed east to west. There are no services other than the occasional pit toilet. Very family friendly.

Iron Goat Trail

Iron Goat Trail

June, 2016 by mr. sp

The Iron Goat Trail is the abandon roadbed of the original Great Northern Railway over the Cascade mountains.
The line opened in 1893 with switchbacks over the top. In 1900 the original Cascade Tunnel opened. It was 2.663 miles long.
This line was abandon in 1929 when the present Cascade Tunnel replaced the line.
The trail is nine miles long but is not steep or difficult. It is nine miles long so be prepared with anything you might need. There are no ammenities on the trail.
At Wellington there is no trace of the town. There is the west portal of the original Cascade Tunnel. The foundation of a water tank and a coaling tower. The concrete snowsheds built in 1911 are there too.
DO NOT ENTER any of the tunnels on the trail. All are caving in or have caved in. BE SAFE and STAY OUT OF THEM.
At the trail heads of Wellington, Martin Creek and Scenic there are pit toilets and a parking area.
Take only photos and leave only footprints. STAY ON THE TRAIL too.

My hometown trail - Jewel of Washington State

April, 2016 by rmsnwbrdr

I have ridden this trail countless times between Rattlesnake Lake and Lake Easton. The Snoqualmie Tunnel (open May-Oct every year, closed in winter) is one of our favorite places to take visiting friends/relatives.

Best route for young/inexperienced riders: when the tunnel is open, have a friend drop you off at the Hyak trailhead and ride down to Rattlesnake Lake (18 miles of downhill riding, 1-2% downhill grade). While you are riding the trail your driver can climb Rattlesnake Ledge (2 miles one-way, ~1800' of climbing) to what is becoming one of the most popular hiking trails in Washington State.

One of these days my son and I will ride across the entire state on this trail- rideacrosswashington.com
