Bikepack - Willapa Hills Trail


Bikepack - Willapa Hills Trail

Ride one of the longest railroad trail conversion in the state travelling along the former Northern Railroad line. Please read leader's notes!

  • *Varies*
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 112.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,200 ft


Open to course graduates and equivalency candidates only. Based on group abilities and endurance we will do all or just a section of the 112 mi RT. We will discuss this via email and or have a Zoom planning meeting.

If we choose to do only part of the trail we will prioritize getting to the coast and to our designated campsite which will involve riding the more adventurous  "undeveloped" part of the trail which involves rough gravel (railroad ballast) and overgrown sections (i.e bushwacking and hike-a-bike) in some sections.

I have a group campsite reserved at Bruceport County Park outside of South Bend.
