Olympic Discovery Trail

late September ride

September, 2021 by wreinsel

Started at the Red Lion Hotel in Port Angeles and went five miles towards Sequim. Picturesque and fair maintenance I’d say. This trail could be a gem with a little TLC. Going the other direction towards Ediz Hook is through an industrial area without much visual interest.

Olympic Discovery Trail

Port Townsend to Rialto Beach

September, 2021 by kfschmidt2

I recently completed the entire trail, with just a few deviations. For starters, take the bus from Four Corners outside Port Townsend to Discovery Bay (about 6 miles). This avoids a narrow busy section with no shoulders. I also took a loop past Tounge Point and Crescent Bay to get off of highway 112 sooner. Finally, I went to Rialto Beach instead of La Push because the reservation is closed due to covid.

Most of the route is on nicely paved asphalt trails. I camped at Squim Bay Stte park, Fairholme and Mora cpamgrounds in Olympic NP. At Squim Bay, reserve the bike in site, as it is much cheaper than a regular campsite. The best section is past Lake Crescent, one of the most beautiful lakes in the country. Fairholme campground does not have an obvious route connecting to the trail. You need to get off the trail several miles before and take the gravel road closer to the lake.

There is about 10 miles on highway 101 that's not great, and a shorter stretch on highway 112, but the rest of the route is great. There is bus service from Forks all the way back to Port Townsend for 3 bucks.

Bayview Trail

Nice trail

September, 2021 by volkeno

This trail now connects to the Centennial Trail right where SR-9 passes over. It goes up the hill in a very nicely landscaped woods, then along a future subdivision before it turns to run along 84th street for a short distance. I think this trail is better for walking than biking because of all the little hills and street crossings, but it has some nice views and is a great way for people in nearby houses to get to the longer Centennial trail. There are a number of park benches and waste cans for dog poop, so I imagine it’s a good dog walking spot too

Spruce Railroad Trail Beauty

September, 2021 by scratssun

August 16, 2021 we rode the Spruce Railroad Trail up and back 21 miles. The beautiful views of Crescent Lake as we rode along the forested paved bike path were spectacular. The weather was a perfect 60 degrees with clear skies. About half the trail goes through gorgeous forest land quite high above the lake where the lake is not visible. A portion of the trail is almost at lake level. Be sure to stop at the Punchbowl and walk a short distance to the bridge. The northeast end of the trail has a nice parking lot. The trail is well maintained. There were quite a few walkers and bikers all enjoying time on the trail. Looking forward to riding this trail again. We also rode a short trail that ended at the double decker bridge and Elwah River--very pretty.

Eastside Rail Corridor Trail

No Dogs except Service Animals!!!

September, 2021 by sdouglas1126

Beautiful trail and very well maintained park. I started the trail at the Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park. Got a little over a mile in and the trail is closed in this end for restructure. I was a little disappointed. Other than that it’s a great trail to walk. Paved and flat. A few slight inclines, but easy enough for people just starting out. It’s a good workout.

Snoqualmie Valley Trail

Be advised of a steep set of stairs. poor signage in some places

September, 2021 by myflotsam

An important detail of the Snoqualmie River Trail is that there is a steep set of stairs (approximately 30 steps) just a few hundred yards South of the town of Snoqualmie. An able-bodied person will be able to lift their bike up or down these stairs, but a 60-70 electric bike will be a difficult lift if the rider is solo (if riding with others two people could lift the electric bikes one at a time). But a set of stairs on a bike trail needs to be pointed out, yes?! Hello! Also, in this same area when heading South the signage is poor (in some cases absent). Otherwise, a beautiful trail, many fantastic bridges, packed gravel/dirt trail surface in very good condition, and not much traffic. Recommended.

Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail

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.

Cushman Trail

FUN SHORT RIDE FOR E-BIKE RIDERS

August, 2021 by scratssun

Challenging as a first-time user. We found this trail a bit difficult to follow when riding from the north end by Home Depot as there were sections where we were off the trail on city streets and were unfamiliar with the area. We enjoyed the big hills up and the long rides down. However, on the return the trail was much easier to follow. We suggest previewing the map closely before starting. Smooth surface which was great and well maintained!

Beautiful Rides

August, 2021 by mrskpico

We rode two sections, in Port Angeles and the Spruce Railroad section along the north shore of Lake Crescent. The Port Angeles section is great, well maintained, and really beautiful as you skirt the shore. There was one section of asphalt before it curved out to the bird reserve that was really bumpy, but otherwise we really enjoyed the ride. Everyone on the path was really friendly and the weather was great. The Spruce Railroad Trail was a lot of fun. The first section has a lot of walkers, dogs, and kids, so many that we started to think it was a bad idea. However, once you go through the tunnel and pass the Devil's Punch Bowl, the walkers mostly fall off (stopping to eat, swim, or go back), and we practically had the trail to ourselves. Again, everyone on the trail was friendly and courteous, and the ride is stunningly beautiful, especially along the lake shore. As we got further away from the water, I did get paranoid about cougars and bears, but that's just typical me. The ride was great fun, and again, the weather was really pleasant, even in the middle of August. We highly recommend the ODT.

Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail

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.
