Columbia Plateau Trail State Park

The trail is great, the loose substrate is unrideable

September, 2021 by thorskettle

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.

Great ride from Rattle Snake to the Renslow Trestle

August, 2021 by jamesdeanreeves

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.

from So CleElum

August, 2021 by debimiller91

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.

Sacagawea Heritage Trail

A great scenic trail to ride, but have Google maps handly

May, 2021 by dickmeissner062

We started this loop at our hotel on Clover Island. We crossed over the Columbia on the Ed Hendler Bridge, into Pascoe, then headed upriver, passing many nice parks. For the most part, the trail is right beside the river. We then crossed over the river again on the I 182 bridge, and rode upriver on the Riverfront trail to find some lunch. This starts in the Columbia Point Marina park. There are plenty of places for lunch along this trail . We then headed back downriver to Kennewick. It is not a scenic on this side.
And I agree about the poor signage. This trail is not well marked, we had to rely on Google maps (with bicycling turned on), to find our way. Mostly around the bridges.

Lower Yakima Valley Pathway

Disappointed

May, 2021 by wts.skeptic

Most Rail to Trail are wonderful. I used this as a training ride as was in Processer for a few days. Got 28 miles in (out and back) and did get exercise. However this route did not live up to my expectations of the routes Trail-toRail are. Went from Prosser to edge of Sunnyside. (Out and Back) I82 on one side, Wine Country Road on other side. Sometimes semi active railroad. Active Wind. Went through Grandview - nice town but signage limited and lots of traffic. There was a clean public bathroom on Route which was nice and from Grandview to Sunnyside frequent bench to sit on. Just north of Grandview the route gets a little roughy. The initial couple of miles outside of Prosser was unattrative and not marked will . Hard to get lost though.

Columbia Plateau Trail State Park

A gem in the making

April, 2021 by wiildrose

I am very sad to see that there is very little work being done on this trail. It will be ENORMOUSLY popular if it is ever finished! Right now the surface is horrible to ride, except on the very ends. With the popularity of rails to trails, I guarantee that this would be a much-loved and used trail if it was improved. The paved sections are great, and the trailheads are, too. There has been work on this trail, with the restrooms and paving. Let's hope the improvements continue! I would love to ride it end to end someday.

Gravel can be loose

April, 2021 by osborne.drumm

We started at Fish Lake Trailhead on a beautiful day. The trail was scenic and started out more sheltered from wind and shaded than I expected, both good. After about 4 miles, the asphalt ended and the gravel surface began. My fellow rider and I both had hybrid bicycles, and are used to road riding. After about 4 miles of riding the gravel road, we turned around early as the gravel was deep enough that we were worried about spills constantly. Perhaps this works for people who are used to riding on gravel or have more aggressive mountain bicycles.

Pendleton River Parkway

Enjoyable city River walk

April, 2021 by jennifer.simmons.olympia

Clean and comfortable paved trail, great for bikes.

Richland Riverfront Trail

Beautiful Waterfront Ride

April, 2021 by lazyjranchca

Nice ride on mostly asphalt! It has a nice park that runs along this trail for stopping and resting! Benches, water fountains and adult swings are available along the route! There is a lot to avoid on this trail, dogs, joggers, walkers, other bikers and occasionally a goose, duck or swan! Bathrooms are available at the park!

Keene Road Trail

Short and Sweet

April, 2021 by lazyjranchca

My daughter lives at the trailhead of this trail and while visiting I ride it daily! It is nice blacktop with a few traffic lights to get through! The number of birds to see is really nice with a estuary along the trail! Due to this being a neighborhood type trail there are lots of families riding and people walking dogs! It also has lots of places to shop, eat and rest on benches with water fountains! Nice easy ride!

Great American Rail-Trail

best trail ever

Columbia River Heritage Trail

Nice break from reality!

October, 2020 by heidiokc

Hubby and I took our Great Dane here while visiting Boardman. Plenty of parking (had our bobtail semi) and clean facilities. Absolutely loved the view. It is windy, so be careful with your hats.
