Bill Chipman Palouse Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is a nice paved pathway that links the border towns of Moscow and Pullman, Washington. There is a Starbucks coffee house at the end of the pathway in Pullman, next to the Washington State University campus.

The Palouse Trail can be accessed next to Starbucks in Pullman, along Sixth Street in downtown Moscow, or at the western edge of the University of Idaho campus in Moscow, across from Wendy’s and Stinker gas station. The campus parking lot across from Wendy’s has several reserved parking slots for the Palouse Trail (4 hours maximum).

Tread: 8.7 miles of paved pathway."
