This is such a great example of the Rails to Trails program! My husband and I used this trail to train for my first half marathon, running year-round there, four times per week. There is always parking near the trailhead on the Pullman end, and if you need even more length, you can incorporate the Pullman Loop trail, which adds another 6-7 miles on. Anyway, the Bill Chipman Trail affords lots of great sight-seeing opportunities of the local farmland (pretty sure there's a mini-horse or pony out there). Only thing to really keep in mind is that there is not much shade, and you'll really want to take water with you. Go and enjoy it for me, as I have since moved away!

Great paved trail system connection Pullman, WA and Moscow ID. The trail gets plenty of traffic with all types of activities from biking, walking, running, and roller blading. Take a detour about a mile outside of Pullman and follow the trail along the airport road to the WSU grizzly bear research center to view the grizzly bears.

Love this trail! Perfect for roller skating, biking, running, walking, walking the dogs, skateboarding -- everything!

The trail has a series of scenic stops that feature information on the historical and ecological past of the area, as well as benches, bike racks, restrooms and an emergency phone. Perfect way to spend a few hours. Plus, it goes right into Pullman.
