Willapa Hills Trail

The Willapa Hills Trail runs 27 miles along an old railroad bed from Chehalis to Pe Ell.  Bordered by pleasant woodlands, pastures, and working farmland, it’s a nice place to ride year-round.  But the Willapa Hills Trail is especially appealing in the winter because the footing is never slick or muddy.
