Sound to Olympics Trail

WTF?!

February, 2024 by timothydhaworth

The most incomplete trail network ever! I kind of see the vision but it's not even 10% done. Would love information on when more segments are going to open.

Chelatchie Prairie Railroad Trail

Lovely trail; short but sweet

November, 2023 by acaikman08

It's paved, it's short but sweet, keep in mind that the railroad IS active (not super active, I didn't see any trains on my particular trip), so use caution at crossings. It's within Battle Ground State Park. I went on a fall day and was tickled (and slightly saddened) to see a bunch of uneaten apples that had fallen off the trees in the area; hopefully some of the local wildlife got some tasty snacks out of them.

Interurban Trail (North)

Great trail! Signage is pretty clear and it's a fun bike ride. I'm going to try some longer trails after this.

Whitehorse Regional Trail

white horse trail

October, 2023 by jemaeandray

Rode the trail from darrington to trafton with a car at both ends on a bluebird day. Blue sky, fall colors, salmon swimming upstream. What a day! Enjoyed the eastern half of the trail a bit more than the western half. It was more wooded and further away from Hwy 530. It was also narrower so difficult to ride abreast. Eastern half is all gravel while western half has several extended paved sections. Don’t know how those decisions were made. Crossed well over a dozen bridges/trestles on the trail. The bridges were slick as snot due to wet leaves so use caution

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

Biked all 56 miles both ways in 2023.

October, 2023 by bkabat1

Aug. & Oct. 2023 I biked entire 56 mile trail both directions. TrailLink write-up is generally correct, with pavement at both ends and then a variety of gravel (packed, loose, and rough) through 90% of the ride. All bridges were completed many years ago, and perfectly in tact. (So, don't pay attention to the many pictures and posts here from 2011; those 2011 pics do not show nor tell of the trail as it exists today.) I used a mid-width tire (1.95"), which handled the gravel nicely. One should NOT bike the loose and rough gravel on thin street tires. I am a fair-weather-only biker: I took one bottle of water (refilled along the way), a jacket, sunscreen, but no backpack. The trail was wonderful for me in the warm, dry weather. I stopped in Pe Ell and got food at the mini-mart, and stopped in LeBam and got a late lunch. I was never in a hurry, using mid-gears over the rough, just soaking in all the beauty of the countryside, hills, forrest. Depending on your energy, you could do the whole length in one day in the dry Summer if you start at 8:30am, or do it in two days, starting around noon. The Raymond side could be a little confusing as it brushes over 101 and the city for a half-mile; map helped there. But, 99% of the trail is woods, farm fields, forrest, and beautiful countryside. I put up about 20 pictures of the journey along the way.

Sketchy Trash

October, 2023 by trustinginhim78

Very nice paved trail, but the Wenatchee Bridge area is pretty sketchy, homeless trash, pot smells and creepy people…

Cascade Trail

Autumn Ride on Cascade Trail, WA

October, 2023 by cmartindunlop

Did most of this trail today (starting in Sedro-Woolley)—38.2 miles in total. We turned around just before Hurn Field Conservation Area. There’s a big tree down across the trail at Hamilton Junction but you can get over it (although tough lifting a 65 pound e-bike). There’s also a partially collapsed trestle bridge over a creek that had no water in it. No problem still getting over bridge—just have to get off your bike. Overall, a beautiful trail that is in pretty good shape. One area has some deep ruts. Fall colors of deciduous trees were wonderful. Trail got less and less busy as we got closer to Concrete but not busy for a sunny Sunday. Some parts you’re close to Hwy. 20 unfortunately.

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

Rainy day ride out of Chehalis

September, 2023 by ron242

With 80% chance of rain in the forecast, parking was not a problem in the 10 able-bodied slots in the Chehalis lot. (I suspect on a sunny day, you'll want a Discover Pass to access tons more parking in the state park lot, or the lots in Adna or at Ceres Hill Road.) The first 5.3 miles of asphalt were smooth but I was careful - much of the paving is split jaggedly up the center - there was a trail crew out patching the worst spot as I rode past. As others called out, do watch out, at road crossings, not only for traffic but, on either side of roads, for foundation components jutting low above the ground of at least two missing motor-vehicle-barrier posts. And as others called out, be alert for bridge transitions, some of which sport more-than-an-inch disparities between trail height and bridge bed. All that said, lovely country ride 9.7 miles to Ceres Hill Road and back to Chehalis left me wanting to return to cycle more of this trail!

Olympic Discovery Trail

No helpful campsite information in app

September, 2023 by slseger

While I understand the need to use RTT as a form of economic development, it sure would be mighty appreciated to include some landmark state and county parks. We spent far too much time planning for this. Yup that’s part of the adventure but still.

Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail

Rode west from Ellensburg in September

September, 2023 by slseger

We rented a car one way to Ellensburg with two bikes. Only option was Enterprise and it worked great. Trail started close to downtown. While we had a headwind on day one it made day two easy with considerable downhill. Towns especially Cle Elum were fun to visit. Excellent camping along the trail and bathroom facilities are abundant. While we did the ride in two days, recommend slowing down a bit and doing thee days of riding. Do this ride!

Interurban Trail (South)

Pacific to Kent

September, 2023 by sara_alexandre

We tried to start the trail where it starts off Stewart Ave but found no place to park without risk of towing. So we hopped on at county line rd where there was a small parking area near a duck pond. Most the trail was pretty smooth and straight but some areas bumpy. We chose to merge onto the green river trail and ran into to some of leash dogs but had no incidents. So no bathrooms along the trail that we could see but some restaurants you could stop at if needed. Would be nice if they could link to the Sumner link trail, close but no safe bridge to ride.
