I love this trail and our whole family has been using it frequently for several years now. We have taken our horses' on it, jogged, biked, walked with our dogs, scooters, etc. The biggest issue I have is there are no garbage cans anywhere along the trail. They want you to pick up your dog poo but then expect you to carry it the whole way......which leads to people leaving bags of dog poo along the trail. It wouldn't be that hard to provide cans, then use a little utility vehicle to empty them every so often. Otherwise, hey, if you didn't bring your dogs then enjoy!

Good cycling trail that connects to Woodland. It's very convenient for commuter cyclists. I used to take this trail from my job in Lacey, to rugby practice off of Yelm highway.

When I lived in Yelm I rode this trail every weekend from Yelm to Rainier and sometimes from Yelm to Olympia and back. Its a nice smooth, level, paved trail. Sundays seem to be when most people are out with their kids and family members. I usually rode during the early afternoon to late afternoon and I met quite a few people but there's room for everyone. Biking, jogging, walking, rollerblading, you can safely do it all on this paved route and I promise you, you will enjoy every minute of it. Enjoy.

Great ride at 10 AM Saturday morning. For late November there were plenty of people on the trail. Started from Woodard Bay and completed 18.5 miles round trip. Stopped at Turkish Kebab on the way back and had a delicious lunch; highly recommend! Next will start farther east to head to Rainier and Yelm.

One of the things I miss about living in Olympia is this trail. It is a great trail for biking whatever distance you feel like that day.

I ride this trail about 4 times a week. Not many people. Very well kept. Nice and peaceful ride time and time again -- I love it. No hills to speak of.

This is a great trail for biking. You can really cruise on this well maintained mostly paved trail. Great for long distance bike rides.

A very well maintained, paved trail that stretches 22 miles from Olympia to Rainier. Good for walking, or bike riding and it never seems to be very crowded.

Scenic rail trail stretching from Woodard Bay nature preserve (The Nature Conservancy) south to the town of Rainier, WA. Great for walking, biking, running, roller blading, birding. Well maintained by Thurston County Parks & Rec. Crosses various rural roads, has bridges over some major roads such as I-5 and Martin Way.
