Eastside Rail Corridor Trail

no bikes

April, 2021 by xtgfkdntc6

You can’t ride your bike but there’s a really nice playground for the kids

Springbrook Trail (WA)

The boardwalk section is, nice but not representative of the entire experience. The southern end runs behind some light industrial areas and feels a bit sketchy. Wouldn't recommend for solo female runners

Scott Pierson Trail

Trashed

December, 2020 by alimillerarlie

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.

Duwamish Trail

Underdog of trails

November, 2020 by corytoneill

This trail is trying its best. It does have its bad moments, like being poorly marked and running alongside a busy road. We all have our faults. I appreciate the quirks and under rated ship yard, and industry views. Take the good with the bad, and set your biases aside and enjoy the down to earth, no fuss no muss trail.

Soos Creek Trail

great trail

November, 2020 by isaflor

I really love the trail. Well maintained and great countryside views

Green River Trail

nice ride but lost the trail

November, 2020 by bigdiscoball

Nice trail pretty views the only problem is the trail stops in places and can’t find where it starts back up. Also detours .

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

Quiet and peaceful trail - Chehalis Trail Head to Rainbow Falls State Park

November, 2020 by divingmecrazy

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.

Chehalis to Adna 11/1/2020 Bicycle

November, 2020 by zasse

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.

Looks like a great trail, but it appears to be closed for renovations. Not sure how much of it is closed, but the trailhead is under construction.

Cedar River Trail (WA)

detour

September, 2020 by rebecca.finkel

Started out at Renton Community Center and headed south. I wasn’t aware of the detour near the trestle which meant riding on the sidewalk along 169 for about a mile or so. Thankfully it wasn’t crowded but was a bit nerve wracking riding back with my 5 year old on the wide walk against oncoming traffic going 50mph - was relieved we didn’t have to share the sidewalk at all. We rode about 5 miles and then turned around. Overall really nice - virtually empty today maybe due to holiday weekend or bc so much sun exposure?
