WA State Discover Pass is required for vehicles entering the park.
Part of this section travels through an ORV park. Be very cautious for motor vehicles.
The trail network at Riverside State Park is multi-use. Care should be taken to accommodate other users. Expect traffic in both directions and always yield to hikers and equestrian riders.
This route details Trail 25 (West), one of four segments forming Trail 25 a 25 mile loop around the perimeter of Riverside State Park.
A grueling tour de force in its entirety, Trail 25 leads visitors on a circuitous route. It travels in and out of forests and meadows, along hills and down bluffs, across riverbeds and through tracts of sand. Fortunately, there are many access points each segment was created with entrance and exit points in mind.
Trail 25 (West) is a bit bipolar. The last half is a reasonably pleasant single/doubletrack ride through the woods. The first half is quite the opposite including a traverse through an ORV park where you'll need to be on the lookout for vehicles. Followed by a loathsome trudge through deep sand beds if you go this route plan to spend roughly a mile of sand wading.
To recap, this ride would be for those looking for a new aerobic challenge or those wanting to ride the full Trail 25 route. This ride is not a family friendly ride or one you should bring your new-to-biking significant other.
