The southern coastline of Washington is broken by large bays, which force the route to turn inland below Twin Harbors State Park. Cyclists can expect a lot of tree plantations with occasional views of either the ocean or vast mud flats (depending on the tide) as the route heads southeast around massive Willapa Bay to rejoin US 101 at Raymond. If you can drag yourself away from the delightful views of artistic deer and elk grazing along the road in Raymond, you may escape the noise of the main highway by following a 2.5-mile bike path west along the Willapa River to South Bend. Start the day with full water bottles and plenty of extra food; few stores or restrooms are found along the route. With little to break the rhythm of the ride, the miles tend to speed by. Cyclists arriving at Bay Center may understandably be tempted to continue south another 33 miles to Cape Disappointment State Park, near Ilwaco.
