John Wayne Trail, Army West Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A sign-in permit is required due to the fact that the trail passes through the highly active U.S. Army’s Yakima Training Center. You must not leave the trail.

The John Wayne Trail (which rolls through the heart of the linear Iron Horse Trail State Park) follows the historic route of the Milwaukee Railroad from North Bend to the Columbia River (the trail will eventually be a true cross-state trail, but the stretch from the Columbia River to Idaho is still to be developed). This far eastern section of the completed trail explores some incredibly wild, pristine land—the designation of the surrounding lands as an Army training base actually helped preserve the area’s wild beauty."
