In the side menu to the right you’ll see four trail segment links. These go to their own pages with embedded Ride with GPS maps. Below is some detail on how to read these maps, as well as general route info.
Trail Surfaces Completed off-road paved trail is shown with a red line. Most paving is asphalt, 10 feet wide. The oldest parts of the trail are 8 feet wide and chip sealed, but they are gradually being redone. The eastern-most portions of the trail are fine crushed rock well compacted, with asphalt on grades. Temporary, on-road trail is shown with a green line. Paved shoulders are generally 3-5 feet on US highways, 2-3 feet on state highways, and 1-2 feet on county roads, though there are exceptions.
Trail Grades Since about 70% of the trail is converted railroad grade, grades are generally sea-level, modest, and uniform. The highest point on the east half is 400 feet, and on the west half is 1100 feet. Elevation contours are shown along the bottom of each map and slopes are shown when moving the curser along the profile. Click the scaling bar to expand a section for closer evaluation.
Trail Signs and Info Way-finding is assisted by the small, blue trail navigation signs placed at intersections, forks, and turns all along the trail. (Old and new styles are shown). Kiosks with local maps and information are located every 5-10 miles. Restrooms or Sanicans can be found every 2-3 miles along the more popular sections of the trail. Temporary on-road portions of the trail do not have signs.
