Cities in Washington State with trails Print

 As you travel our wonderfully diverse state, take your bike and walking shoes and see what other communities have done to provide their citizens with places to exercise and enjoy nature at it's best.  Bring home the spirit that we can also do this in our community.  Join LCCT and let's do this together.


Chehalis Western Trail links Olympia, Tenino and Yelm with over 20 miles of level, paved trails.The closest trailhead from Centralia is the the City Park in Tenino. Just a great trail for all ages.    


Greenway Trail in Yakima  is called "The Jewel of Yakima" Ten miles of paved pathway connects three parks, two fishing lakes and three river access landings.  The Yakima Greenway is the perfect place for walking, bird watching, fishing, running, biking, skating, picnicking and enjoying healthy outdoor activities


Wenatchee Loop Trail is a 10 mile trail along the Columbia River. A good starting place is at the Confluence State Park in Wenatchee.


Foothills Trail  is a 15 mile 'rail trail' from Puyallup to Orting to South Prairie.  It goes through some beautiful countryside and follows the Carbon River for a stretch.  There are plans to extend the trail to Carbonado and Buckley.


Olympic Discovery Trail currently extends 25 miles from Sequim to Port Angeles. It is relatively flat for most of the way with a few dips and hills.  The surface is paved or compacted gravel and suitable for all bike tires. The trail will ultimately run from Port Townsend to Forks - 150 miles!


Snoqualmie Centennial Trail is 29 miles in length and connects the towns of Snoqualmie and Arlington as it meanders through one of the most beautiful agricultural valleys in the state.


Galloping Goose Trail  is an extensive trail system that takes you throughout Victoria B.C. and the surrounding region (OK it's not in Washington state, but you can see it from Port Angeles). If you can't decide on which section to use -try the north section called the Lochside Trail.  It takes you out of the city and through some beautiful countryside.  Level and compacted surface.


San Juan Island Trails   There are a number of public trail systems on the island for hikers, bicycles and non motorized use. For maps of these areas visit their web site.
