The Washtucna Rail-Trail offers a nearly mile-long route through the small (population only about 200) southeastern Washington town of Washtucna. It begins at the community's elementary school, then heads past Pioneer Park and makes its way south along Columbia Lane to Portland Street.
Along the way, travelers will have some lovely views of the surrounding countryside. About two blocks from the trail, near its southern end, take a quick excursion to Bassett Park. The park's native plantings and small creek are known to attract birds (more than 100 species have been spotted there) and you'll see signs noting the wildlife viewing opportunity; look for quails, hawks, warblers, kestrels and others.
If you're in the area, a fantastic rail-trail to check out is the Columbia Plateau Trail State Park, which is just east of the Washtucna Rail-Trail and spans a whopping 130 miles.
There is no designated trailhead parking for this trail.
