I use this trail to workout a lot
Challenging as a first-time user. We found this trail a bit difficult to follow when riding from the north end by Home Depot as there were sections where we were off the trail on city streets and were unfamiliar with the area. We enjoyed the big hills up and the long rides down. However, on the return the trail was much easier to follow. We suggest previewing the map closely before starting. Smooth surface which was great and well maintained!
There are several very hazardous places on this trail and several places you can't hike because of 'greenery' blocking the trail. Near the Gun Clubb Rd ( that's how it's spelled) you are blocked from the trail and have to go down the bank to the road. Logging trucks are whizzing by as you share the road with them. Shoulder is about 1 foot wide and at one point you cross a short bridge where you could reach out and touch the constant traffic. Definitely very dangerous. A short time later you go back up the bank to access the trail. There are 2 trestles on the trail and one has rotten boards that move when you step on them. No hand rail to help you. Near Robertson road, the trail is totally blocked off with what appears to be trees and bushes grown over the trail. You leave the trail, walk Robertson road for a short bit and then back to the trail. It seems to me that, with the exception of the trestles, the trail could be cleared to avoid road hazards. It could use some mowing of high grass but that is not a hazard but a matter of convenience.
I greatly enjoy this trail. There can be trash left around the tunnel by the houseless, but it is fairly clean. I recommended using the 311 just to alert the city to help keep trail clean. It's such a peaceful ride.
We rode 42 miles round trip from Farm 12 at Shaw Road in Puyallup to Buckley. This is a beautiful trail following the river part of the way as we passed farms and heavily forested land. Slightly uphill to Buckley but ride back is wonderful! Several places to eat and use restrooms.
We came here with 4 grandchildren, daughter and her husband and my husband and I. It was nicely paved, mostly flat and beautiful view. Benches for needed stops, which I need for my bad knee, were wonderful. We parked at the golf course and ended at the play ground. All ages and pets were happy!
Paved...start in Orting...going up hill to Buckley...went into town and had burgers at wally's. Trail can be busy.
Most of the trail was covered in garbage and debris including shopping carts EVERYWHERE! There were several homeless camps and tents throughout the trail and this tunnel on 19th street with piles of rotting garbage big enough to fill a dump truck! It was discussing! I even rode past a few used syringe needles! Very unsafe and horrible to see. Disappointed in our community.
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.
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.
Trail is closed for construction until 9/30/2020 west of the intersection with the Chehalis Trail. We didn’t feel comfortable detouring on the highway running parallel and are not sure how long the closed section was. We did enjoy our ride on it from Yelm to the closed point and then just turned around a did about 6 miles on the Chehalis trail before heading back to Yelm. Great cookie bakery in Ranier- The Cookie company on Main St. It was a bonus on the way back to Yelm.
Had I known, I would have brought a bucket! Not from this area, so I didn’t know the blackberries would be ripe and there are bunches of them on the edges of the trail at the north end. They made a great lunch!
