This is the best trail I have ever ridden!
What a great trail well taken care of great scenery. Whole area is amazing.
What a beautiful section of trail I started at Rattlesnake lake road up and through the pass tunnel and back nice hard packed gravel.
Road this from Ellensburg west for 26 miles with 38mm tires. nice smooth trail going through history. met some gravel riders riding from North Bend to Cle Elum 50 miles and back for a gravel century in a day.
Rode this trail in August and it is a wonderful trail. Well maintained, scenic and relatively flat. For someone just getting into biking after a two year lay off, it was perfect.
I was turning 44 years old and decided to ride the west section of the Palouse to Cascade trail for some needed alone time. Left Redmond at about 8am and made it to North Bend at about 9:45, where I swapped out my road tires for some slightly wider road tires (32c). A road bike with gravel tires is fine for most of this ride.
Began slogging up the railroad grade. Saw lots of rock climbers, picnickers, and a few cyclists. Weather was warm and it was beautiful. Take a lot of water and snacks, because there is no where to refresh unless you bring a filter.
My legs were getting pretty cooked by the time I made it to the tunnel. I was expecting the temp to drop, but did not realize my legs would instantly cramp from the cold! That was a little weird, being a mile into a dank, dark tunnel with legs spazzing into knots.
Made it out, and drug myself another two miles up to the summit for lunch. Calories please!
Continued on to Easton, then Roslyn, then up to the little town of Ronald to meet my family at an Airbnb.
Total miles: 97.5
Totally calories: 5780!
Rode the John Wayne trail from Beverly to east of Smyrna April 25, 2019 about 15.5 miles. Trail is in good condition. The ride was a tad over 5 hours. Started about noon and reached our destination a little after 5 PM. Saw two rattlesnakes and heard several others. One place sounded like it could have been a den of them. The horses shied and side stepped a bit but no rodeo. Lots of water birds. And we saw asparagus growing along the tracks in several places. Plan to continue on east as the weather permits.
Just outside the city of Yakima is a beautiful canyon with a well maintained trail. Several off shoots (including a climb to a winery and tasting room) make this a unique little jaunt!
This trail is wide and widely used. From serious athletes to large families with strollers - but everyone fits well and seem to enjoy the company. I took a side trip up Selah Hill (steep but short) and got a nice view of the valley. Don’t miss the iron rail bridges!
I’ve lived in Wenatchee for four years now and have really enjoyed the Apple Loop trail, even more so after the two additional legs have been added. One leg takes you 5 miles (one way) south to Hydro Park while the other leg goes north ~6 miles (again, one way) to Rocky Reach Dam. The Loop itself is 10 miles so it’s wonderful to be able to crank out 20+ miles on the bike after work right from the office! The county PUD does a great job keeping it clear of snow in the winter as well.
I loved my hike, spent 3 weeks going from Seattle to Ellensburg.
Went for a run on this 10-mile loop on a beautiful fall day with my two labs. They love the swim stops. I love the gorgeous views. The trail goes through the Wenatchee Riverfront Park where there is a public market, lots of art work along the trail, and beautiful, gardens. Bathrooms, water fountains, and trash cans can be found periodically along the route.
