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.
