More About
Lacey, WA

About LaceyLacey, a suburban community just east of Olympia, was first called Woodland in honor of pioneer Isaac Woods. By the 1890s Lacey boasted a sawmill, resort hotel and the region's major horse racing track. Tudor-style buildings dominate the campus of St. Martins University, founded in 1895 by the Order of St. Benedict. Tolmie State Park, 4.5 miles west of I-5 exit 111, features 1,800 feet of shoreline on Puget Sound, a saltwater marsh and a 2.5-mile nature trail. The near-shore waters are popular with scuba divers.

The Chehalis Western Trail is a recreation trail following the route of a logging railroad that operated from 1926 into the mid-1980s. The paved, 6.5-mile north segment, suitable for horseback riding, connects Martin Way and Lindsley Lane S.E. with Puget Sound at Woodard Bay. Offering walkers, runners, bikers and roller bladers views of Mount Rainier, the 16-mile paved south segment connects 14th Avenue S.E. at Chambers Lake with SR 507, 2 miles west of Rainier, where it connects with the 14.5-mile Yelm-Tenino Trail.
