Description: Drive 1.4 miles from start point to trailhead. Driving directions will be on the walk directions. Restroom at trailhead. Come celebrate a wonderful work in progress, the process of converting a 56-mile rail-trail. The paved portion we will walk takes us over two century old trestles that cross the Newaukum and Chehalis Rivers. The trail provides peaceful country scenes of farm land, dairy cows, and a glimpse of Mt. Rainier. Listen for the whistle of the steam train in the distance. Veterans Memorial Museum and steam train ride near trailhead.
