This old railroad bed goes from Arlington to Darrington. The section that connects to the centennial trail is not open, you have to find a trailhead off of highway 530. This trail has everything going for it, beauty, scenic, 2% max grade, wonderful, wide trail. BUT..the wrong gravel was placed as the surface. The gravel won’t pack and leaves a loose, squirrelly surface that is relatively unpleasant to ride on and is so loud you cannot talk to person next to you. It’s too bad, great trail ruined by the gravel topping. The only good thung about the gravel is you won’t find any other cyclists on it... We rode it with our gravel bikes, 3m tires.
We loved this walk! It was a flat gravel trail well maintained that wound its way along the bay. Great views and tons of bird watching.
The trail is wide enough for three people across to walk. The surface is level and perfect for aging/overused knees. Excellent walk for visitors.
There was hardly anyone on this trail, so I'm kinda compelled to tell you it was horrible in an attempt to keep it as is and all to myself! (insert hideous laughter). But as the last poster indicated, it is a hidden treasure that is barely used. From Swede Heaven west, it is all packed gravel, and a few paved areas. East it is not maintained, but totally ride-able with a hybrid - don't need mnt-bikes. They made it sound like the trail disappeared or got impassable with "swallowed up by thick forest and dense bogs", but we quickly figured out that is on the sides - not IN the trail - duh! I see that the county has applied for permits to fix the washed out area near Arlington, so maybe that will happen next year! When it does, and if/when they gravel the section between Swede Heaven and Darrington, this will be a totally awesome trail (really, it already is!!!)
Nice flat well-maintained gravel Trail. Beautiful scenery in the fall. Only went from Sedro-Woolley to Lyman. Plan to do the upper half from Lyman to concrete later this fall.
This is one of our weekly rides and we love to combine it with the South End Trail giving you a 15 mile round trip ride. Start at Bloedel Donovan Park and take the train just over the highway 5 overpass. Make a left on Lincoln and take to Kentucky. When you get to the high school, stay to the left and catch the bike path heading towards Railroad Ave. Railroad Ave will dead end at the South End Trail taking you to the square in Fairhaven.
Great easy run walk trail with beautiful scenery. Good for the whole family!
The trail is nice for walking, biking, jogging, but not skating. It is not paved as listed here.
This trail needs some help, It was so over grown that I really was wondering if I was on the right trail about 75% of the time. I am glad I am very secure on my bicycle in this type of riding because it was not easy and I had to dismount in a few spots. I would stay away for cycling and even hiking, just not worth the thorns and bushwhacking you need to do.
This trail begins with a few confusing blocks through an industrial part of city, but then becomes its own path through a largely shady stretch that is very pleasant. On the river, you can connect with the river walk. For a mile of so of s broad boardwalk, there are nice river views, parks, playgrounds, art, casual restaurants. The trail becomes rough gravel after passing warehouses.
Rode 30 miles roundtrip on this trail last week of August in gorgeous weather - cool, sunny & dry. This section fo trail is not in Olympic National Park. Traverses a variety of landscapes - city, ocean front, forest & farmland. There are many sections that are not on the original rail grade so there are some climbs and descents along with a few river crossings on original trestles. On my return, I got caught in the dark. Fortunately, I had a light!!! All in all a good ride!
I rode a small section of this trail in late August, from the Sol Duc trailhead east to Ovington with a short diversion to Lake Crescent, about 10 miles roundtrip. The trail was closed for improvements at points further east. I was extremely impressed by the lush trail and beautiful lake. The portion of the trail I rode on was terrific and fairly level. At Ovington, one can easily access Lake Crscent which is pristinely gorgeous. I also visted the unique bridge spanning the Elwha River. Due to time constraints, I only drove the bridge which is a double decker with autos on top and the trail bridge suspended below. The Spruce is set to re-open in the next month and look forward to opportunity to ride more it!
