Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail

Sketchy Trash

October, 2023 by trustinginhim78

Very nice paved trail, but the Wenatchee Bridge area is pretty sketchy, homeless trash, pot smells and creepy peopleā€¦

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!

Great American Rail-Trail

Great Allegheny Trail southeast of Pittsburgh?

April, 2023 by eshawger

Surprised to see this amazing trail that has great bed and breakfasts along it is not noted as part of the Great American Rail Trail. It sure would help demonstrate more GART completion if it was.

Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail

Could be a premier trail

July, 2022 by margiesmassage_tl

Rode different sections of this trail in our cross country trip on recumbent trikes. We had difficulty sinking in the sand, thick gravel , getting stuck several times and got stuck in thick mud. If it had appropriate surface, it could be a premiere trail.

Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail

A bit difficult and somewhat disappointing.

July, 2022 by gjswitek

Our family group ranged in age from eight to seventy-two. We spotted a car near Garcia and began our trip at Hyak. On a near 90 degree day, the tunnel was a cool and inviting place. We learned the hard way that our lights were inadequate. A good bike mounted light would have made this leg of the trip more enjoyable.
We found the surface of the trail gravel too course to ride comfortably even with our down hill direction on the trail. The loose coarse aggregate did push our front wheels sideways from time to time which required a lot of concentration. That hindered our enjoyment of the scenery.
Overall, we had a good time on the trail until the end. The road to the Garcia connection to the trail was is such poor condition that we chose not to risk damage to our cars and parked about a mile away. That road back to the parked car was extremely difficult to travel on a bike with two of us losing control of our bikes with one set of scuffed knees and elbows. This could be a trail that makes the hall of fame if the State of Washington would provide a better surface.

Great ride from Rattle Snake to the Renslow Trestle

August, 2021 by jamesdeanreeves

This is an awesome ride from the westernmost start at Rattlesnake Ledge all the way to the Renslow Trestle east of Ellensburg.

There's a few miles around Easton where someone in their "infinite wisdom" put the gravel on the trail so heavy that it made riding difficult, but it's doable.

Then there's the sand that the Army spread claiming "habitat restoration" from the Renslow Trestle across the last 20 miles to the Columbia River totally destroys the joy. Right, pure sand... does the Army think this is the Saharan Desert? To me, it seems pretty clear the Army did that in hopes to discourage bikers from crossing that section - you'll need fat tires to have any hope to ride it, and even then it will be a battle.
