I didn't like how one direction was mostly uphill and the other direction was mostly downhill. I like a little more variety of up and down in each direction. And although it was pretty, I'm I don't understand why this trail is so popular.
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.
Very hard to navigate and had to ride on the highway. Saw 2 otters and a deer but just ok ride.
Lovely trail not even too crowded on a Sunday. Well marked and very shady
Great ride along the coast. I very much enjoy this trail and recommend it.
Unimproved along sections, and some muddy spots. But gorgeous. Everything the Banks Vernonia LT used to be before it was paved and became a bicycle race track.
A great trail for walking or riding. Lots of families. Beautiful scenery. Watch out for high speed bike riders who fail to yield right of way to others.
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.
Ran half of it (from Vernonia) with a friend today (2/27), and it was very muddy. We had fairly appropriate tires, but full mountain bike knobbies would have certainly helped. The trail would be much more enjoyable after about three rain-free weeks. The first stretch out of Vernonia is pretty steep, but once you cross the paved road it levels out a lot. One other thing to note is that if you ride the paved road on the return leg, the chance of an encounter with an angry motorist is pretty likely. We had several.
The trail was so pretty and scenic. It seemed to be in good repair (except for several downed trees along the path). The wooden bridges and walkways can get super slick, but otherwise a really nice walk next to the creek.
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.
