Elevation: 789 feet
Ride Type: Re-Group
Cancelation Guidelines: Steady rain or snow


Some spring weather is finally here. Come join Sam and me as we ride the beautiful Willapa Hills Gravel trail from the trailhead at Adna, WA, to Pe Ell. This is an out and back ride on a mostly gravel trail that has no cars or trucks.  It is a pretty ride that follows the path of the Cehalis River and crosses it several times.

Most of the trail is very fine gravel. The gravel is loose in a few places and new gravel was been spread on parts of the trail last year.  I recommend a minimum of 32mm tires.

Riders can stop at any portion and head back if needed. As long as you stick to the trail, it's impossible to get lost.

We will regroup occassionally. There are full restrooms at the turn around point in Pe Ell.  Pe Ell Country Market is located off Main and 4th if you need to purchase supplies.

A WA Discover Pass is needed to park at the trailhead. I recommend street parking in Adna if you do not have one.

Ride Policies

We will regroup occasionally for those keeping pace.

Faster or slower riders are welcome but be prepared to ride on your own. 

All registered riders are welcome and may depart at any time to ride their own pace and distance; please let the ride leader know if you leave the group.


Registration is required and almost always free to both members and non-members. Please scroll to the bottom of this page to register for this event.
