Yelm Prairie Line Trail Description

The Yelm Prairie Line Trail is a 1.3-mile paved rail-trail that runs along the previous route of the historic Prairie Line Railroad through the City of Yelm. The current 1.3-mile multi-use trail is part of a 4.8-mile section of the old railroad line owned by the City of Yelm, who is working to develop it in order to extend the existing trail. As part of a larger project to create a state-wide trail system, the Yelm Prairie Line Trail will eventually link the cities of Yelm and Roy with plans for it to connect with other trails. 

At its southern endpoint on W Elm St, the Yelm Prairie Line Trail meets the Yelm-Prairie Trail, a 14-mile rail-trail that provides access to Olympia, Lacey, and other areas of Thurston County on a triad of linked trails. Continuing through the City of Yelm, the Yelm Prairie Line Trail crosses Yelm Creek before reaching the trailhead at 1st St and Railway Rd SE. The rail-trail then heads towards the outskirts of the city and ends just before the Centralia Power Canal. 

Parking and Trail Access

Parking near the trail's southern endpoint is available by the Yelm-Prairie Trailhead (behind City Hall on Railroad Street SW) and a further .4-miles down the trail by the Yelm Prairie Line Trailhead (1st St and Railway Rd SE).
