Discovery Trail

Great trail!

March, 2021 by aladan3

Did this as a couple (mid 60s) in mid-March. The weather was cool (upper 40s) but with lots of sunshine. Pretty chilly in the forested section but comfortable in the sun. Trail is well marked, well maintained and relatively easy. The section from Beard's Hollow up to the lighthouse could be challenging - however, we have electric assist bikes so it proved to be no problem even going up the hill. Don't let it intimidate you - just shift to a low gear and go slow. It's worth the climb! Great views of the lighthouse and the ocean below. Highly recommend this trip.

Quiet and peaceful trail - Chehalis Trail Head to Rainbow Falls State Park

November, 2020 by divingmecrazy

We were blown away by how nice this trail is and all the fall colors still are popping. You might want to keep an eye out for horse poop piles hidden in the leaves, and was fun to see mixed use of this trail. I would have expected more people on this trail and will be back to section ride this trail to the coast.

Rainbow falls state park was a great spot to rehydrate and refuel before riding back. Take time to find paths to view the falls.

Overall, this trail was in great condition and a flat trail. Be mindful of the gaps between the gravel and bridges. I ended up breaking a spoke on this ride.

Chehalis to Adna 11/1/2020 Bicycle

November, 2020 by zasse

Paved portion of the Willapa Hills Trail is short, 5 1/2 miles, narrow and not well maintained. There are spots where it is so overgrown that it would be tight for passing.

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

South Bend to Raymond

August, 2020 by dennis10406

Started in South Bend. From there to Raymond it was just ok. Along the highway. At Raymond the trail actually goes on an old rail line but it is seldom used. This is mid August so the blackberry bushes are over the trail and we actually woke up this morning with a flat tire caused by a thorn. I heard this trail was nice and saw nice pictures but not at the west end.

Clean and smooth ride

Great ride along the coast. I very much enjoy this trail and recommend it.

Sylvia Creek Forestry Trail

Forestry Trail

June, 2020 by mookie840

Had a great time with my husband and 2 daughters (ages 9 and 11). The trail was a bit muddy and pretty narrow in some spots but we saw a beaver! Definately the highlight of the trip. We stopped and had lunch on the creek right before the bridge. Great day for some ametuer hikers. I wouldn't say this is for all ages though.

Discovery Trail

3 Star due to Trail near Ilwaco

April, 2020 by vrse316

We started the discovery trail from Ilwaco - riding bikes (ordinary bikes not mountain bikes or racing bikes). The trail is very curvy with up and down hills that make for dangerous turns... too sharp. Also, the trail was tediously difficult uphill - we could not ride uphill - you have to walk it (by the way - please do not do this at night)! We went in the AM and were very glad it was not dusk... we had to walk uphill panting - and worried about cougars. You are alone in the wilderness area with no chance of good cell coverage... walking up a mountain side. When you do reach the road - there's an overlook that is very nice - however, things are not marked well and we were not sure (we heard the trail goes down to the beach through the woods again... but, we opted to take the road into town and catch the beach trail from there). Will say the beach trail is very nicely done and more manageable - the Ilwaco length is treachery. Be careful.

Lebam West to Menlo Link open

August, 2019 by geoduck87

My mothers family is from the area, and lived in Lebam, so was interested in riding a section. Happened upon a local who said that the edges of trail were mowed at least yearly to keep branches and blackberry vines back and this section was being finished. Thanks to info re: getting on from Robertson Rd, I located the very small entrance and rode about 3 miles W to the Trap Creek Bridge. Trail reminiscent of a very long private road with 2 small single tracks and some grassy patches. Doable on cross bike or better.

Discovery Trail

AN ABSOLUTE DELIGHT

February, 2019 by thejake91739

This easy, twisting, smooth, well-maintained asphalt trail meanders through wavy, grass covered sand dunes along the longest, flattest beach in the United States. To say this ride is beautiful is an understatement. The views are awesome, and the art, historical markers, and other information along the trail greatly enhance the enjoyment.
We traveled all the way from SoCal to experience this and to check off another state in our quest to bike all fifty, so we have especially fond memories of our September 2013 morning on the Discovery Trail. To make a day of it, consider visiting the nearby lighthouses and the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center!

July 14-16 2018 Whole trail (Important warnings!)

July, 2018 by john268

On Saturday 7/14 I rode from Pe Ell to South Bend. Then on Monday 7/16 my wife drove me from South Bend to Pe Ell and I rode from Pe Ell to Chehalis.

I love this trail! There are certain sections I would not recommend to the casual rider at this time.

Around Frances and through to Willapa there are several sections where the trail has mostly succumbed to blackberries. At times I picked my feet up on my crossbar and glided through. But other times I had to get out and walk, picking my way slowly and carefully through the thorns for a long, long time. There is at least 2,000 feet of trail like this (at least!).

In Lebam, at Robertson Road, it is incredibly easy to lose the trail. It picks up again right across the road but it is so overgrown that it is almost invisible. According to reports there is a bridge out and you have to take a detour (but alas the detour is not obvious at all). So, what you do is follow Robertson Road to the right of the trail for about 1/2 mile (guessing at the distance) and then take the first trail-like thing you see on your left into the woods. This should get you back on the trail. There are no signs! I biked around Lebam for about 5 miles before I found it. I also discovered later that if I zoomed wayyyy in on Google maps I could see the trail and the detour as well. I hope this saves other people some time and frustration.

Between Pe Ell and Frances there are several railroad trestles without decking. Don't try to ride across these as some of them have ties that are severely rotted and have mostly disintegrated. This bears repeating from the trail description. If I recall correctly the third or fourth trestle out of Pe Ell toward Frances was in the worst condition. The first couple of trestles out of Pe Ell were actually fine but very, very bumpy! The trestles are breathtaking for the natural beauty around them and for the fact that you are wayyy up above the ground on some of them.

I also rode through nettle patches and lots of long, long grass west of Frances.

In Raymond the trail closes and sent me off on a detour to the right. I went to the right then turned left crossing the street (Hwy 101). Once you cross Hwy 101, head back toward the trail you left off - but don't take the first trail to your right. It looks really nice but will lead you to a scenic dead end in a mile or two. Instead, bike along Hwy 101 and the trail will reappear before you.

With all that said, I can't express how beautiful this trail is. It was a great adventure and absolutely worth the effort. For a casual ride, I would recommend starting at Adna and heading west for about 10 miles. The trail is either paved or fairly smooth dirt & gravel for that part. As you get closer to Pe Ell in either direction the gravel gets deeper and wider tires are a big plus. On two-inch tires I found myself swimming around a bit on certain portions.
