We rode our bikes the entire 21 miles from Olympia to the end of the trail where it intersects another trail that takes you to the town of Rainier (2miles further). Round trip was around 42 miles. Very scenic with multiple lakes along the way. We stopped for coffee at the 5 mile mark near Kohl’s / Target. This is your last chance for some food or drink until you get to Rainier. Definitely recommend!
Rode north to south, returned via Interurban trail. Fair amount of construction (trail and riverbank) with number of detours. Trail goes via light industrial and commercial zones first, farther south it is nicer, away from major roads, goes by residential zones. Good trail, but somewhat boring so there are better choices if you are after views and nature.
Best Trail ever
Nice trail. Espresso stand with chairs and cover part Orting. Some oddities - parking in Puyallup says "2 hours limit". There is no way average person would be able to ride the entire thing in 2 hours, considering stops and maybe even lunch. Took me 3 hours Puyallup - Buckley and back with coffee break. There are parking lots in Orting without the sign. Best part is from Orting to Buckley, away from the road, wonderful fall colors, bridges, etc. Puyallup - Orting is flat, but goes along 162 in farming-light industrial zone, so expect some diesel fumes from trucks. From Orting trail climbs at 1% grade, sometimes 2% so you may have to drop 2-3 gears. Back ride is mostly downhill with little effort. Good options for lunch, coffee or even dinner in Puyallup and Orting. Not busy, but it was weekday.
I ride this trail daily on my bike from Redmond to Bothell and enjoy the scenery no matter rain or shine. People along the trail are very considerate and friendly giving way and providing help when needed. The maintenance teams blow the leaves off the trail early in the morning and keep the bathrooms clean. This is a great trail to enjoy miles of pavement without any cars.
We hiked the trail last weekend going east from Pe Ell to Frances. This is really a beautiful portion of the Willapa Hills Trail. However, there are two dangerous trestles between the towns of Pluvious and Frances that should be avoided. They are 2.3 and 2.6 miles east of Frances. Be aware that the trestle at the west end is marked as closed but there are no closed signs when you approach the trestles from the east. With a 50' drop, one of the trestles has very narrow ties with a wide gap between them. Two of the ties are loose with one of them about to give way. Be careful. We will continue our hike from Frances with a stop in Menlo next. Even with some hazards, the Willapa Hills Trail is a remarkable trail.
This is a great trail; however, contrary to how it is currently drawn on this site, it does not include 133rd St. (which connects to W. Snoqualmie Valley Road). 133rd is a private residential road. Everyone using the trail - bikers, pedestrians, etc. need to respect the signs that clearly indicate the end of the trail at the beginning of 133rd. Otherwise, you are trespassing on a private road and are subjecting yourself to possible prosecution. To get to W. Snoqualmie Valley Road from the trail, you must exit the trail farther west at 232nd and make your way south to Novelty. Turn left (east) on Novelty. This will take you down the hill to W. Snoqualmie Valley Road.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Finished the trail. Started in Everett finished in Seattle. Signage was easy to find.
