Willapa Hills State Park Trail

Biked all 56 miles both ways in 2023.

October, 2023 by bkabat1

Aug. & Oct. 2023 I biked entire 56 mile trail both directions. TrailLink write-up is generally correct, with pavement at both ends and then a variety of gravel (packed, loose, and rough) through 90% of the ride. All bridges were completed many years ago, and perfectly in tact. (So, don't pay attention to the many pictures and posts here from 2011; those 2011 pics do not show nor tell of the trail as it exists today.) I used a mid-width tire (1.95"), which handled the gravel nicely. One should NOT bike the loose and rough gravel on thin street tires. I am a fair-weather-only biker: I took one bottle of water (refilled along the way), a jacket, sunscreen, but no backpack. The trail was wonderful for me in the warm, dry weather. I stopped in Pe Ell and got food at the mini-mart, and stopped in LeBam and got a late lunch. I was never in a hurry, using mid-gears over the rough, just soaking in all the beauty of the countryside, hills, forrest. Depending on your energy, you could do the whole length in one day in the dry Summer if you start at 8:30am, or do it in two days, starting around noon. The Raymond side could be a little confusing as it brushes over 101 and the city for a half-mile; map helped there. But, 99% of the trail is woods, farm fields, forrest, and beautiful countryside. I put up about 20 pictures of the journey along the way.

Rainy day ride out of Chehalis

September, 2023 by ron242

With 80% chance of rain in the forecast, parking was not a problem in the 10 able-bodied slots in the Chehalis lot. (I suspect on a sunny day, you'll want a Discover Pass to access tons more parking in the state park lot, or the lots in Adna or at Ceres Hill Road.) The first 5.3 miles of asphalt were smooth but I was careful - much of the paving is split jaggedly up the center - there was a trail crew out patching the worst spot as I rode past. As others called out, do watch out, at road crossings, not only for traffic but, on either side of roads, for foundation components jutting low above the ground of at least two missing motor-vehicle-barrier posts. And as others called out, be alert for bridge transitions, some of which sport more-than-an-inch disparities between trail height and bridge bed. All that said, lovely country ride 9.7 miles to Ceres Hill Road and back to Chehalis left me wanting to return to cycle more of this trail!

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

west end

August, 2023 by loraleecampbell

We only road for about 10 miles on the far west end. Trial was paved but turned to gravel. Needed to bring my pruners for parts due to overgrown bushes. Otherwise good rude

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

Nice-ish trail

July, 2023 by bethredeker1

We rode the trail for 9 miles out. It began paved and remained that way for about 5.5 miles or so. During that time, there were several areas of concern. The large divider stake (most were yellow) at the center of the trail by the ends where the road intersects…one was completely missing which is very dangerous as the bottom components were still intact. Also the bridges had very large lips on them, so we got off our bikes at almost all of the bridges. When it turns to gravel it is pretty nice for about 3 miles or so. We turned around at that point as the gravel became thicker and more difficult to maneuver.

A Lovely 8.5 Mile Ride to the Lighthouse and a Stellar Lookout

June, 2023 by vidmar

I love this trail. It is well-paved and meanders through headlands from town to town on the way to the North Head lighthouse. Along the way, you can see eagles, seabirds, and incredible kites. The view from the lighthouse is beautiful and worth the ride up the hill. Also, the view from the lookout is well worth the ride.

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

first time with trailer an dogs

May, 2023 by thomas zepeda

Rode a road tandem pulling a trailer with two doges from Pe Ell to rainbow falls state park and back. Had a great time, but should have had our fat tire tandem. Our 700-35 tires on the loose gravel, apparently layer down on the wet areas, made the going more work than fun. My other issue was the barriers at the road crossings to keep motorized vehicles off the trail. They use 2 metal posts instead of 1. This is more difficult to navigate on a tandem especially pulling a trailer. All said I will h ride this trail again.

Yelm-Tenino Trail

a very nice trail

April, 2023 by fgladics

April 24, 2023. First nice day this spring on the Tenino to Yelm trail (Tenino to Yelm and back).. A number of rough spots in the end near Yelm but most marked with yellow paint if you watch for them. Five or six road crossing about half cross paved side roads and half gravel drive ways. One crosses two lane highway had great sight lines and very little traffic to wait for. I may have seen 6 other cyclist and four walking during the out and back ride. And one other recumbent trike near the Tenino depot park.

Parking Passes

Remember that you'll need a Discover Pass to park (or pay otherwise)! Tickets are expensive and the rangers are definitely patrolling!

I was amazed at how much I enjoyed this trail and the areas around the trail from riding through the headlands to the incredible kites to the small towns just off the path to the lighthouse. I loved it and look forward to the next time.
