Walking

A nice walk or run along a creek within the Palouse Landscape and some Palouse Prairie foliage. Downsides are that it's an asphalt path, and right along a busy roadway and some businesses, and it's frequently traveled.

Great trail. Not a lot of shade. Can get congested so pick your timing accordingly. There’s definitely a grade if you’re not used to biking uphill at least it’s a gradual incline

Saw the same coyote two days in a row. Just a little guy about half a mile in front of the Toyota dealership. Seems like there is a den around there

This was the first time ever on this trail for me. also the first time with our 4to on a trail-a-bike. once he stopped trying to tip us over by looking behind it was great. this was truly an easy ride, even from a very occasional rider standpoint. our middle child was on a bike without any gearing and while she was tired, she did really well. we had a friend come pick us up from Moscow to go back to Pullman but after refueling we may have been good to ride back.

Not much of trail. Paved and runs next to a highway so the sound of cars and trucks flying is not so appealing. Not much to look at while walking.

Easy but busy. I do this one a lot with my pup during the week and you’ll see tons of people on it. It’s well kept but noisy since it’s right next to a major road. Not a hike, just a place to go for an everyday walk.

I love to cycle on this trail - it's a great and EASY ride out to Moscow. I'm confused how some of these trails get their difficulty levels, but this trail is fairly flat. There's some elevation gain and some wind but it's certainly not moderate in difficulty. It's well maintained and wide. Most of the time you'll run into some folks but I've never experienced overcrowding.

I like this trail to trail skate on. I personally like jogging the Moscow to Troy side as there's more to look at and has some pretty good views. However Moscow to Pullman is flatter so it makes it easier to have speed control when there are 8 wheels strapped to my feet.

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.
