Interurban Trail (Bellingham)

NOT wheelchair friendly…

October, 2022 by deansmith4

…At least not at the south end. The surface is irregular gravel with rocks large enough to knock you out of your chair. Barely wide enough for a chair but not for passing bikes.

Tommy Thompson Trail

This amazing trail is unfortunately closed due to a fire that engulfed the wooden structure.

Cascade Trail

Cascade Trail

I loved this trail. We had access to this trail right outside of our Thousand Trails Campground. So peaceful with very little traffic. I got on the trail near Birdsview and went east. If you went west you were weaving in and out of traffic on a busy 2 lane Hwy. most of the way to Sedro-Wooly.

Cascade Trail

Be prepared

Spring riding can be a bit tricky, some of the trail is under water and waterproof shoes are very beneficial.
But other then that it is a beautiful trail and looking forward on riding it again.

Cascade Trail

Nice surprise ride out of concrete

May, 2022 by ynzwncyxv8

We did not know that this trail was there and were in concrete. We ping the bird view diner but did not want to take the main road on our bikes. To our pleasant surprise we found this trail. It is a well maintained gravel path. Only issue we hit was a bit where it had washed out but there were planks just off the trail for us to cross on our bikes. Planning to do the full length in the future.

Whitehorse Trail

Whitehorse Trail-Heads Up!!

April, 2022 by madronameadows

The trail is closed from a wash out starting in Arlington. We parked in the first designated parking area 11 miles East of Arlington. We headed West towards Arlington to see where it was closed and why. Shortly after starting out we came to an intersection of a county road just before the first highway crossing. We were greeted by a BIG white-possibly Pyrenees Dog which came after us barking, growling and snapping at our legs. The rest of our ride way uneventful but we had to pass the area with the dog to get back to our car. We luckily have electric bikes and when we came back to the area the dog was standing in the middle of the trail. We used our power assist to speed past the dog which came after us but couldn't keep up.

Snohomish County Centennial Trail

Excellent trail, great conditions

March, 2022 by gerald.hawkins

I rode the entire trail, up and back. The surface of the trail is nearly all in excellent shape. The grades are mild and none are very long. The street crossings in Snohomish are mostly very easy. Further up, in Arlington, the street crossings are not quite as safe. The trail has plenty of places to stop and restrooms at key locations. The trail passes through some very pretty forest and farm country. There are markets and coffee shops in two or three places. There are several excellent places for a lunch stop. I spotted eagles twice. To avoid the traffic on the Snohomish end, consider parking at Machias Road access (Three Lakes exit from Highway 2). Going up and back from Machias or Pilchuck parking areas gives approximately 50 miles up and back instead of 61.

ATVs, Dirt Bikes on Trail

July, 2021 by saskia.ilcisin

Started in Darrington- made it about 2 1/2 miles West, trail is closed after that point due to a landslide. Trail itself was nice enough, many biting insects despite bug spray, but ran into 3 quads/ATVs and 2 motorized dirt bikes- I’m not sure how they got around/through the large concrete blockades, but it was frustrating to encounter on a trail that they supposedly aren’t allowed on (I was there with horses). Happy to run into cyclists and hikers, less so motorized vehicles.

Tommy Thompson Trail

Loved this Run!

May, 2021 by klafser

What a terrific, peaceful place to run! Tree sheltered shoreline across Fidalgo Bay with wide, asphalt trails. Loved it!

Whitehorse Trail

Great trail, horrible gravel

April, 2021 by mgkeller28

This old railroad bed goes from Arlington to Darrington. The section that connects to the centennial trail is not open, you have to find a trailhead off of highway 530. This trail has everything going for it, beauty, scenic, 2% max grade, wonderful, wide trail. BUT..the wrong gravel was placed as the surface. The gravel won’t pack and leaves a loose, squirrelly surface that is relatively unpleasant to ride on and is so loud you cannot talk to person next to you. It’s too bad, great trail ruined by the gravel topping. The only good thung about the gravel is you won’t find any other cyclists on it... We rode it with our gravel bikes, 3m tires.
