You can ride from centennial trail to this bridge to cross the river and continue on to make a connection to the Ben Burr trail. This is also a nice detour around the construction of the bridge going on just south of here.
We loved this trail!! I would say it ranks up there with Hiawatha for scenery. We saw a cow moose and calf and SO many birds. The first time we did this trail, we started at Cataldo then about a mile or so into the trip there was a moose and calf in the left in the swamp. Beautiful, breathtaking scenery and in October the colorful leaves and weather are simply divine. ¿
The other reviews of this hike are many years old, so I thought an update was in order. We hike this trail at least once a month year round. The trail is 5.2 miles total out and back. It is a gravel/dirt surface and fairly flat. The trail goes through the Palouse River canyon with steep basalt walls. It is a dramatic change from surrounding hills. It is unusual not to see wildlife. We have seen deer, coyotes, eagles, hawks, ducks, geese, vultures and numerous small birds. Like many converted rail routes we have hiked there are several apple and plum trees. The trail ends where the railroad crossed the Palouse River. A tunnel is visible across the river, but is collapsed inside. The covered bridge that was further on burned a few years ago. There are several gates on trail to contain cattle which are rarely present. There is a nice parking area at the trailhead at the end of a dirt road. The signage could be better; use your GPS or just follow the road north past the scrapyard and gravel piles.
Stayed in Kellogg and rode most of the trail. First day Harrison-Plummer and back, then Harrison-Black Rock and back. Lots of dead trees from forest fires. Second day Kellogg-Black Rock and back then Kellogg - Osborn and back in the afternoon. Decided to skip I-90 part from Osborn to Mullan and went MTB instead for a day. Lots of wildlife - moose, birds, turkeys. Not very many people riding in the end of September especially during the week. Harrison-Plummer is probably the most scenic.
No trail exist from boulder beach east a few miles and shoulders of the road have glass and debris. Very dangerous during high vehicle traffic times. There is a safer alternative but it is all roads and no trail.
This loose gravel used as a trail substrate makes these trails unpassable by bicycle. The loose gravel is tantamount to attempting to ride a bicycle across a sand dune. The gravel is soft and loose and creates too much friction for a bicycle ride longer than a quarter mile. This is a real shame and potential waste of resources. Trails must be hard packed for decent travel by bicycle. This isn't the only trail with this issue here in Washington. Many sections of the Palouse to the Cascades trail also suffer the same poor choice in trail substrate.
JUST BEAUTIFUL-SEMPER FI
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.
Forest fires still smoldering
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.
Glad we went on a weekday. And seeing 5 moose made our day. The bridge is awesome also. One of my very favorite rides.
Lots of detours! Nice view along the city river section but every direction there were detours. And then homeless coming out of the bushes.
