– “Cyclists and walkers keep Thurston County trail system busy”
“Thurston County’s trail system has marked another milestone with a new visitor plaza at the first bicycle roundabout in the state.
The Hub Junction Project was celebrated Thursday [March 17] at the intersection of the Olympia Woodland Trail and Chehalis-Western Trail.
The project caps the latest triumph in a multi-jurisdictional effort to connect the county’s trails for bicylists and pedestrians. Located near the Lacey-Olympia border, the roundabout contains wayfinding signage and trail history along with seating for visitors.”
“Thurston County estimates that the largest trail, the Chehalis-Western Trail, attracted about 351,984 people in 2015, according to county data collected at four trailheads. This former railroad corridor stretches nearly 22 miles from Woodard Bay south to the Yelm-Tenino Trail,” quoting Andy Hobbs, The Olympian.
