Ready, set, hike! That’s what pups and their people love to do on the Chehalis Western Trail in Lacey’s College St SE/ 45th Ave SE neighborhood, about 10 miles from DuPont! The 21-mile trail runs north-south through the region from Olympia to Rainer, with a section intersecting with this neighborhood’s woofderful Avonlea Park. Paved and heavily shaded with trees and lush vegetation, the path is pawpular among cyclists, inline skaters, equestrians, and of course, dog walkers. Avonlea Park is a great starting point since it has ample parking. There’s also a picnic area with barbecue grills, a playground and basketball courts. Leashed dogs are also welcome in the neighborhood’s Rainier Vista Community Park.
