1600 Eastside Street SE

WTGA map Progressive

Park History:

In 1990, Jim and Carol Rainwood envisioned the idea of converting an abandoned rail line into a paved trail connecting east and west Olympia and to link Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater and Thurston County. Jim and Carol also pioneered the formation of the Woodland Trail Greenway Association, formerly the East West Greenway Association, to assist the City of Olympia in fulfilling this vision. A Feasibility Study was completed in 1998, the Master Plan was completed in 1999, and land acquisition was completed in 2003. The first section of the trail opened for public use on August 7, 2007. The trail now extends from the main trailhead at the intersection of Eastside Street and Wheeler Avenue to the Chehalis Western Trail, 2.5 miles away.
Park Features:

    10 Foot Wide Multi-Use Bicycle/Pedestrian Trail, ADA Accessible
    4 Foot Wide Crushed-Rock Trail
    Picnic Shelter/Restroom
    Over 12,000 Native Tree and Shrub Plantings

The main trailhead is at the intersection of Eastside Street and Wheeler Avenue. It has a parking lot, shelter/restroom and information about the trail system. Trailhead improvements are designed with sustainable design and green architecture features. The shelter/restroom has a living roof covered with plants. Interior spaces are lighted by solar tubes. The parking lot is porous pavement. A rain garden filters stormwater.

Pedestrian and bicycle only trailheads are at Frederick Street, Boulevard Road and Dayton Avenue.

Sustainable Design Features
Park Accessibility:

The Olympia Woodland Trail is fully accessible.  The asphalt trail maintains a gentle slope of 3% or less.  Signage encourages bicyclists to ride on the right and announce when passing on the left.

cushman01Phase 2 of the Cushman Trail is a project in partnership with Pierce County, Tacoma Power and the City of Gig Harbor. The new trail extension is 2½ miles of 16' wide pervious asphalt with 4' wide gravel shoulders.

A section of the trail between Foster Street and the Wilkinson Farm Park is constructed on a pin-pile bridge to minimize impacts to the wetland.

This phase connects to the existing Cushman Trail at the Pierce Transit Park & Ride on Kimball Drive ends at 96th Street NW (off Burnham Drive). A trailhead with restrooms and parking is located at the end of Grandview Street. A new lighted crosswalk has been installed across Rosedale Street.

Many of our members love to run dogs on Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) ranges.  Below is some information on how you too can particpate in this valuable, free resource.  Be sure to read ALL of the below information.

READ THIS FIRST - JBLM Range Control Area Access Guide offers this great info & map of the ranges

You must drive to the main gate (I-5 exit # 120) and go to the visitor center and obtain a day pass. That allows you onto the fort so you can get to the area access office, building T-4074, Area Access Office (Range Control). Their phone number is 253-967-6371. Permits recorded message number is 253-967-6277.

Google Map directions to Building T-4074 once on base.

One additional note - when you do go, be sure you have the vehicle's registration with you. (The vehicle you intend to use to take your dogs to the fort property.) Trailer registration (if trailering) wouldn't hurt either. You will also need your drivers license and proof of insurance.


Emergency Fort number: 253-307-8215 or 911

You need to know if the training area is either open or closed? - so go here or call 253-967-6277 and leave your range pass # as well as anticipated "in time" and "out time."

The route of the Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT) traverses approximately 130 miles of lowlands, bordered on the south by the Olympic Mountain Range and on the north by the Strait of Juan de Fuca. It starts in the Victorian seaport of Port Townsend and spans approximately 130 miles east to west, ending on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. The trail is a wide, paved pathway designed to multi user standards for bicyclists, hikers, and disabled users, with a 4’ shoulder for equestrians where appropriate.

olympic discovery trail map

Construction started in the 90’s. Completed sections will total 53 miles by 2012, with right of way agreements in place for over 65 miles. This website shows the entire route, with temporary on-road routes, approximating the final route, shown connecting the completed portions. Planning information is provided for the resulting 126.2 mile trail.

The Olympic Peninsula is Washington State’s premier destination for non-motorized touring, filled with views of snow capped peaks, ocean vistas, fast flowing rivers and pristine lakes, and everywhere the majestic forests of the Pacific Northwest. The presently completed trail winds through fields and farms, parks and towns; over creeks, rivers and ravines on restored railroad trestles; and past beaches and national recreation areas.

The trail exhibits a wide diversity of fauna and flora -- an unmatched range of natural beauty. This website has been designed to support trip planning. In addition to the Map section with many downloadable PDF maps, note the Trip Planning Section which covers things like Suggested Itineraries, Bike Shops, Campground Locations, Equestrian Information, Disabled Information, Local Transportation, Trail Status, etc.

In many ways the ODT is a major highway for non-motorized travelers, spanning the entire peninsula. We have included a Side Trips Section, providing information and maps for towns along the trail and for natural attractions along the way that can be easily reached from ODT on side roads or trails.

We hope this website provides the information you need to utilize the trail with confidence. However if you have questions or need assistance with planning, please contact us, either with the contact button at the bottom of each page, or on the User Forum in the User Services Section.

The trail is a beautiful break from city life that starts just minutes from downtown Chehalis. On the way to Adna it crosses two century old trestles that cross the Newaukum and Chehalis Rivers. As it crosses Tune Rd, Shorey Rd and Hwy 603 it  provides beautiful country scenes and a glimpse of Mt. Rainier away from the busy highways nearby. It parallels Hwy 6 for a short section before it crosses the highway  at Stearns Road.  The trail  then goes  past a private manmade lake that was used for barefoot waterskiing competitiions, then behind Adna High School to the Adna trailhead.  The trail continues past the parking area for another 3/4 mile across Bunker Creek Road, past a sheep farm and ends at a 800' trestle for now until the trestle is redecked and side rails added in the future.

The trestles at Spooner Rd. and Dryad, taken out during the 2007 catastrophic flood, are scheduled to be replaced with FEMA funds in the next few years. These two trestles are scheduled to be replaced by the end of 2014.
A major hitch in the completion and official opening of this trail has been the Littell crossing at Hwy 6. There is poor sight distance where the trail crosses this major Highway. For the time being the paving will end a short distance in both directions of the trail and change to gravel to ensure slowing down at the crossing. The State Parks Dept. will be asking the state at the next legislative session to provide assistance in designing and constructing a safe crossing.
Lewis County Community Trails, has been active in partnering with the Washington State Parks Department in helping to secure grants and has acted as a liaison between State and Congressman’s Baird’s office in helping to secure funding. LCCT has also given advice on the needs of the local area and useful improvements including signage along the trail. LCCT will aid the State with trail maintenance on the Chehalis to Adna portion once it is completed.

The Cedar River Trail follows the Cedar River from where it enters Lake Washington in the City of Renton upriver to the community of Landsburg at the boundary of the City of cedarrivermm17Seattle’s Cedar River Watershed. At 17.3 miles in length the CRT is a paved, off-road trail for the first 12.3 miles, and features a soft surface for the last five miles. The trail follows a historic railroad route between the river and State Route 169, and passes through or near Renton, Maplewood, Cedar Mountain, Maple Valley, and Rock Creek. It offers views and access to Lake Washington, downtown Renton, Cedar River Park, Maplewood Golf Course, Ron Regis Park, Cedar Grove Park, and Maple Valley. The CRT also provides excellent views and access to the Cedar River along its length. Between Renton and Maple Valley the CRT is popular with bicyclists and skaters and provides both recreational and nonmotorized commuting opportunities. At Maple Valley the trail intersects the Green-To-Cedar Rivers Trail, which runs through central Maple Valley, then continues to the more secluded Rock Creek area and onto Landsburg in a wooded river valley. This soft-surface segment is popular with off-road bicyclists, joggers, walkers and equestrians. Parking is provided at both ends of the trail, and at numerous locations along its length.


Length: 17.3 miles

Surface: Paved and soft-surface
Access Points: Parking is available at Nishiwaki Lane at lake Washington, along the trail immediately adjacent to State Route 169, and at Landsburg.
Use: All non-motorized uses. Access to equestrians is restricted within Renton City limits.

Accessibility: Paved portions (such as at Liberty Park) are ADA accessible; unpaved sections are not. Disability access at Liberty Park.

chehalis-western-trail Thurston County recently acquired the Chehalis-Western Trail North in 2009, it consists of 5.3 miles from Martin Way to Woodard Bay.

The historic Chehalis Western Railroad, which operated from 1926 through the mid-1980's, has now become the Chehalis Western Trail.  The trail runs north-south through the heart of Thurston County and links up with the County-owned 14.5-mile Yelm-Tenino Trail. It passes through a variety of ecosystems and environments in both the urban and rural areas of the County. It provides access to over 170-acres of park land including nearly two (2) miles of frontage along the Deschutes River, and features access to the Puget Sound, Chambers Lake, wetlands, forests, farmland, creeks, prairies, and other habitats.

Thurston County-owns and operates 22 miles of Chehalis Western Trail in public ownership. The trail is an integral and significant linkage in the planned 48-mile county-managed trail system. It features four trailhead facilities with parking, restrooms, and picnic facilities at the Chambers Lake Boat Launch, Scenic Overlook at Chambers Lake, the Yelm Highway Pedestrian Overpass, a trailhead at 67th Avenue with parking and trail information, and a parking area at Fir Tree Road. The northern section has a trailhead at Woodard Bay with parking and restrooms. With spectacular views the trail system provides excellent opportunities for users to enjoy a tranquil and refreshing outdoor recreation experience any time of the year.

The Foothills Trail sits atop a historic railroad bed and snakes through the river valley southeast of Tacoma. This 25-mile-long trail is a popular commuter route and recreational destination for bicyclists, while hikers enjoy shorter, more manageable segments of the trail. One of the most scenic sections for the unobstructed views of nearby Mt. Rainier begins in Orting and follows the Carbon River upstream through farmland and forest.


The Foothills Trail is a 12-foot wide non-motorized asphalt trail / linear park suitable for bicycles, walking, in-line skates and wheel chairs. It also has a soft shoulder path for equestrians.

Completed paved sections include 15 miles from Meeker to the South Prairie Creek in South Prairie and a 2 mile section in Buckley. Our future plan is to continue the trail to Puyallup where it connects with the Riverwalk Trail then ultimately to Tacoma and Sumner where we will connect with the Interurban Trail that now extends through Kent and Auburn. The trail in Buckley will continue east to King County and Enumclaw.

The Foothills Trail has been constructed in sections as finances, environmental permits and county ownership have allowed. When complete, the trail will be more than 28 miles in length. June 28, 2007 marked the opening of the entire length of the Foothills Trail, extending from Buckley through the Town of South Prairie, City of Orting and into the City of Puyallup.

The trail opening was held at the City of Buckley's southern border on Highway 165 where a happy crowd of local dignitaries and trail supporters gathered in liquid sunshine to hear Pierce County Parks Director Kathy Kravit-Smith pay homage to Doctor Tate and give thanks to the Foothills Trail Coalition for their dedication and public service. Other speakers included the Mayor of Buckley, Pat Johnson.

Rail-Trail History
A rail-trail is an abandoned rail bed used as a non-motorized public trail with transportation and recreation in mind. There are over 10,000 miles of rail-trail in the U.S. Some abandoned rail lines have been rail-banked, which keeps the corridor in one ownership. However, to assemble the Foothills Trail, each segment of trail was painstakingly purchased or, in some cases, donated to Pierce County. Federal and state grant funds are used to construct the trial segments into existing and ongoing Foothills Trail.

Burlington Northern Railway abandoned the rail bed in 1982. The effort started in 1984, when a Buckley physician and a community visionary organized the Foothills Rails-to-Trails Coalition to assist Pierce County Parks in building the trail. Despite roadblocks, construction of the trail is ongoing and thousands of users are already enjoying its benefits.

The Yelm-Tenino trail corridor was acquired by Thurston County 1993. Historically it operated as a railroad from about 1869 through the late 1980's. This 14.5 mile line runs east-west through the southern portion of Thurston County and connects the communities of Yelm, Rainier, and Tenino.

The trail traverses forest and agricultural lands, wetlands, creeks, and other habitat and runs parallel to State Route 507. The trail begins near Yelm City Hall, passes near Wilkowski Park in Rainier and ends at Tenino City Park featuring views of the Deschutes River west of Rainier and of McIntosh Lake near Tenino.

The Yelm-Tenino Trail intersects with the 22-mile Chehalis Western Trail, linking the cities of Yelm, Rainier, Tenino, Tumwater, Lacey, Olympia, and Woodard Bay on the Puget Sound.

Permitted uses of the trail are pedestrians, bicycles, and other forms of non-motorized use.

The Yelm trailhead is located behind the City Hall and features parking, picnic tables, restrooms and an information kiosk.

The Rainier trailhead is located between Centre and Minnesota Streets behind Rainier Market with restrooms available.

The Tenino trailhead is at the Tenino City Park on Washington Avenue with access to restrooms.

SnoqValleyTrailMapThe Snoqualmie Valley Trail offers the opportunity to get out and explore one of the most beautiful agricultural valleys in the region.

The trail meanders past working farms as well as preserved open space areas, and connects to the cross-state John Wayne Pioneer Trail in Iron Horse State Park. Points of interest include Tolt-MacDonald Park, Meadowbrook Farm, Three Forks Natural Area and the Tokul Trestle.

Length: 31.5 miles

Surface: Crushed rock and original ballast surfacing. Former railroad trestles have been decked and hand railed from Duvall to Rattle Snake Lake with one on-road detour in the City of Snoqualmie.
Access Points: McCormick Park; Nick Loutsis Park, 356th PL SE, Rattlesnake Lake Recreation Area, NE 4th & Ballarat Ave in North Bend.
Use: All non-motorized use.

Accessibility: Due to the crushed rock surface, the trail is not readily accessible to people in wheelchairs.
