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.

Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail

Beautiful & Clean

Love this trail!

Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail

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.

Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail

from So CleElum

August, 2021 by debimiller91

Soft gravel and not very scenic from either side of CleElum. Rode 12 miles each direction. Could not sightsee as it was difficult to manage.

Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail

Wonderful Waterfront Ride

August, 2021 by ryan.mrazik

Great paved trail with urban feel on the west side of the river and a less urban feel on the east side. Excellent infrastructure all the way. Would go again for sure.

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.

John Wayne Trail

July, 2020 by sbhalo

Isn't this the "John Wayne" Trail? Awesome and maintained trail... sometimes a bit "rocky" verses "gravelly." And the rocks can be pretty sharp, got a flat tire on my last ride on the trail.

REI Ride through Tunnel

Had a blast with about 10 others on this ride. Great scenery not very difficult or much elevation change. The tunnel was awesome!!! I definitely want to come back!!!
