I used the combination of Yelm-Tenino and Chehalis West trails last year to get ready for the Seattle to Portland ride. Start in Tenino and ride out to where the trail intersects with Chehalis then ride that trail to where the trail crosses South Bay road turn around there and you get around 50 miles of riding. Gas station on South Bay Rd is a good place to replenish water, etc. The weird little dirt part of the trail off of Rainier Road is the only issue. If you haven't ridden there before the trail drops down along Rainier Road for a couple of blocks then there is a sharp left onto this hard packed dirt part of the trail. Take it slow. It is pretty short and then the trail opens up to a very wide paved stretch. Great trail throughout. Quiet nice scenery and strategically placed facilities.
We rode the trail from Yelm to Tenino. My wife rode her 3 wheeled recumbant and I rode the Mt bike. The asphalt conditions were good and the tree root penetrations we read about were not bad at all. Our only negative encounter on the ride was the excessive amount of horse dung near the Yelm trail head. The trail is really flat and has a great amount of treed canopy. We stopped near a small lake and had lunch. We highly recommend this trail for all cyclists.
On a rare clear sunny day in Aberdeen Washington and this is a great walk! The trail is in good shape and is right along the bank of the Chehalis River. I would recommend walking with a friend, your dog and/or your favorite walking stick on this west end of the trail as there were some homeless people (I assume) around this area that were probably harmless. Still I didn't see any other walkers here at this end, just them (my reason for 4 stars instead of 5). Going further east and you come into the City of Aberdeen's crown jewel - Morrison Park with this trail right on the riverbank. Lots of people around here. Family's at the playground. There's a pier near here too with lots of benches to soak up both the sun and the outstanding river views. That's the old Weyerhauser export pier on the other side of the river where millions of board feet of Pacific Northwest grown and produced old growth timber was exported mainly to Japan. All that's left of that is what you now see. Anyway, if you're in the area and you like "river walks" the East Aberdeen Waterfront Walkway is worth your time. With plenty of free parking too. Especially on a rare clear and warm July summer day with a friend or two. Thumbs up on this one!!
We parked at the Yelm Trailhead parking lot which is behind the city hall at Railroad and Washington SW. The parking lot was small – about 15 spaces – and shared with parking for the city hall. The trailhead had a porty-potty and the remains of what was once a bench. The trail condition from Yelm to Rainier, which is 5.5 miles, had a number of root heaves. The root heaves were all pretty well marked with paint so you could avoid them. The trail condition from Rainier onward to Tenino was in better shape.
For the most part, the trail follows State Highway 507. At times, there are trees that act as buffer to the road. There are a number of low-traffic street and driveway crossings. The trail connects with the Chehalis Western Trail which heads north into Lacey. We continued on the Yelm-Tenino Trail. There aren’t that many benches along the way except for the trail intersection with the Chehalis Trail and near McIntosh Lake.
At about 11 miles, we decided to turn around and head back to the trailhead. If you had one day to cycle one trail, I would recommend the Chehalis Western Trail instead since it does not follow the state highway and offers more variety.
Looks like more than one attack has taken place on this trail as reported in The Olympian.
We did 40 miles (20 out and back) today on this fantastic trail. We are fairly new to road cycling and still a bit nervous to ride a lot in traffic. This trail gave us the mileage we needed with out the concerns of riding on busy roads. The scenery is outstanding, a good amount of shade, and not too many other users mid-week. The trail itself seemed well marked and maintained. Please disregard reviews that share concerns about losing the trail. The issues in Lacy "near the Petsmart" have been resolved and we had no problems. There is a short area, as someone stated before about 600ft, of gravel. Our road bikes traversed it fine, no flats. This is quickly followed by an equally short bit on the road with traffic. Just keep going and you will join the trail again on the right side of the road. There is little doubt that we will be frequent users of this trail even though we live near Tacoma. Oh, also, we were very impressed with vehicles stopping at crossings, very courteous and safe! Thank you!
Beautiful morning ride. We started at 26th N. The farthest point north. The hotel there provides complimentary parking. Spectacular baby rollercoaster ride for 6.35 miles to Beard's Hollow. Got a little confusing there because the trail was gravel and steep after the bridge. We went back and found the trail to the lighthouse. Very Nice. Got directions from the park volunteer. We went back to the road, turned right up the hill and found the asphalt trail to Ilwaco. It was wet and slippery from fallen leaves. Control your decent carefully! My wife fell hard on the wooden bridge just before the end near Ilwaco. The bridge has "SLIPPERY WHEN WET" sign. IT IS!!! We walked the bridge on the way back. The next day we rode the dunes section again because it's absolutely gorgeous and not crowded on Monday.
Bring your boots or bike and take a nice stroll along washingtons west coast paved trail /w bathrooms at the state parks at both ends.
I love walking this quiet, restful trail, it would be all the more restful if the bicyclists could be advised that they can NOT be heard when they approach rapidly from behind a walker or baby buggy, at the speeds they use. They also do not respect walkers by riding two and three abreast and forcing the walker off the paved area.
This could be helped by a sign to remind cyclists to use bells and that they have a duty to share this glorious trail. The section of the trail I use is also used by people dependent on wheelchairs and walkers and I am concerned that there will be a sad accident due to these speeds and no warnings.
I also note that although the dog walkers often use the doggy droppings bags, they tend to throw them on the side of the trail!
Please put some signs up addressing these issues.
We love this trail and do it often. The new rail bridges are beautiful.
This is a great forested section of trail that is beautiful and fun! As noted in other posts, it includes some ups and downs, and it is definitely worth checking out. during the summer, consider combining your walk/hike with a visit to the Saturday farmer's market at the Ilwaco waterfront, where the trailhead is located.
We rode this trail today on a cloudy day and it was beautiful and remarkably well maintained! Started in Tenino and the trail was excellent all the way to Rainier. A little rougher between Rainier and Yelm due to roots under the trail but it is all well marked and safe and a pleasure to ride. This trail is accessible for all ages and abilities and there is the opportunity to stop and eat at Sonja's, an amazing little restaurant in Rainier! Will definitely ride it again! Thank you to all who have maintained this lovely trail.
