I-5 Bike Path


 Bike path that hugs the side of I-5 through Olympia and Lacey. Not exactly scenic, but it does provide much-needed east-west connection between the two cities. Part of this trail is on roads, but most is separated from the street. It's kind of hilly, especially if you're riding from west to east.
