Banks-Vernonia State Trail

My expectation were too high for this trail possibly

September, 2020 by moscowsharon

I didn't like how one direction was mostly uphill and the other direction was mostly downhill. I like a little more variety of up and down in each direction. And although it was pretty, I'm I don't understand why this trail is so popular.

Yelm-Tenino Trail

nice trail but section closed

August, 2020 by svaron

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.

Willapa Hills Trail

South Bend to Raymond

August, 2020 by dennis10406

Started in South Bend. From there to Raymond it was just ok. Along the highway. At Raymond the trail actually goes on an old rail line but it is seldom used. This is mid August so the blackberry bushes are over the trail and we actually woke up this morning with a flat tire caused by a thorn. I heard this trail was nice and saw nice pictures but not at the west end.

Frenchman's Bar Trail

NOT a great walking trail

August, 2020 by chuffine

The first portion of it, starting near Vancouver Lake, is pretty, although there is very little shade. However, once it gets to the end of the Isthmus, at Blurock Landing, it parallels the road. It's really no more than a more protected bike lane that is right beside 501. I walked for a while and then turned around, very disappointed. I'm surprised at the high ratings folks gave it. 5 stars, really? Also cell phone coverage is spotty (at least for my phone) so be aware. For bikers or skaters it may be fine, but NOT recommended for walkers unless you find walking beside a sometimes busy two lane road as your idea of being out in nature.

Tilikum Crossing

super views!

July, 2020 by jessica.koenen

Best way to cross the willamette on a bike - protected and wide. Drops down right at OMSI...

Yelm-Tenino Trail

so nice

July, 2020 by debimiller9_tl

Great trail. A little construction and a 1/2 mi detour but not bad. Lots of wildflowers and walkers. Had to cross the road a couple of times.

Warrenton Waterfront Trail

2020

July, 2020 by debimiller9_tl

Very hard to navigate and had to ride on the highway. Saw 2 otters and a deer but just ok ride.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

peaceful

July, 2020 by debimiller9_tl

Lovely trail not even too crowded on a Sunday. Well marked and very shady

Springwater Corridor

Not one I'll do again

June, 2020 by moscowsharon

This trail is good for commuting.

Rock Creek Trail (OR)

great trail

May, 2020 by madriago

Great with 3 kids all on bikes - one a tricycle

Crown Zellerbach Trail

Unimproved along sections, and some muddy spots. But gorgeous. Everything the Banks Vernonia LT used to be before it was paved and became a bicycle race track.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

A great trail for walking or riding. Lots of families. Beautiful scenery. Watch out for high speed bike riders who fail to yield right of way to others.
