Willapa Hills State Park Trail

Favorite trail hands down

October, 2022 by mrzwiefelhofer818

I have ridden this trail three times now start to finish and it is hands down my favorite around. People complain because it's not paved the whole way but that is my favorite part. It's not all cookie cutter and neat, it is an adventure! 56 miles of the most beautiful scenery you have ever seen. I am going to ride it start to finish for the fourth time next weekend. Can't wait! If God rode, this would be His trail. 5 stars!

Foothills Trail

Foothills trail parking

September, 2022 by jonault

This is a wonderful trail, the parking lots do have 2 hour parking signs but they don’t seem to be enforced. I have parked there 5 times with no issues and I was talking to some local resident trail users and they said they have never been ticketed. They think the signs are to discourage carpool parking or overnight camping. Nice restrooms too.

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

South Bend to Raymond

September, 2022 by chloesgrandma

Rode from South Bend to past Raymond yesterday. There are lots of tree roots making it dangerous. Once you get past Raymond it is fairly smooth and asphalt for about a mile then it turns to gravel, which was much smoother riding. Trouble is after a couple of miles the trail is no longer navigable. All broke up with chunks in it. I wouldn’t hike it at that point. Why aren’t our tax dollars being used to keep it usable? Grays Harbor County and Lewis County deserve a better trail.

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

South Bend start.

September, 2022 by chloesgrandma

We started in South Bend and went as far as we could to Heckard Road. The trail comes to an end there. Past that point it is impassable on a bike. From South Bend to Raymond is very lumpy, close to dangerous. We crossed the highway in Raymond and the trail was pretty good even though it turned to gravel after a mile or so. The gravel was smooth. We wouldn’t do this trail again. We plan to try other sections.

Snoqualmie Valley Trail

Fall City to Tokul Tunnel Trail Ends with stairs

September, 2022 by pcraze

We parked at SVT trail parking in Fall City to ride the trail towards North Bend, but found out that the trail ends in just 3 miles when you reach the Tokul Tunnel. Next to the Tokul tunnel we saw a very fit young male cyclist walking his light weight rode bike down a very steep dirt hill to reach the SVT. On the other side of the tunnel are a steep set of wood stairs with no hand rail. I’m a 4’-9” woman with a heavy mountain bike so I didn’t attempt the stairs or hill. We thought it was best to turn around and ride back towards Carnation. Beautiful shady ride in forest

Tolt Pipeline Trail

Some crazy steep hills

September, 2022 by jason100

Most the trail is level and easy going, however the farther west you go into Woodinville and Bothell, approaching I-405, the hills get treacherous because they are very steep, up to a 22% grade in some places, and some have major roads cross at the bottom. I rode the entire length staring in Duvall and ending at I-405 on a brand new fat tire eBike with hydraulic disk breakers and I felt like I was pushing everything to the limits. Without the eBike and good breaks I would either be walking or avoiding those hills.

Cushman Trail

Hilly

August, 2022 by bonniewest_tl

If you like hills, this trail is great. If you don’t like hills (like me), not so great of a trail.
