Thurston County Bicycle Map

Please note that the scale bar shown in the legend on the full county side of the printed map is not correct. While the scale text (1 inch = 1.2 miles) is correct, the scale reflected on the scale bar is not accurate. When estimating mileage on the full county side of the map, please use 1 inch = 1.2 miles to calculate distances. Using the scale bar will provide inaccurate results. An updated PDF version of the print map can be downloaded here.
New Version

An updated version of the Thurston County Bicycle Map is under development and printed copies should be available in early 2015. A limited supply of the current version are available at the pick up locations.

Bike Cautiously

You may find gaps in the bicycle network on some major routes. In these sections there are neither bike lanes nor wide shoulders, and traffic volumes may be higher. Though experienced cyclists may feel at ease in these areas, less skilled cyclists may want to choose an alternate route.

Excluded Streets

Bicyclists may use all streets and roads within Thurston county except:
  • The 14th Street Tunnel between Jefferson and Capitol Way in Olympia
  • I-5 from Trosper Road (exit 102) to Martin Way (exit 109)
  • Highway 101 from I-5 to the Black Lake Interchange
Know the Law

Traffic laws apply to bicycles just as they apply to motor vehicles. Bicycles must be treated the same as any other vehicle on the roadway.
