Bateman Island

Unspecified • 2.4 mi • 0 ft

Before dropping 20 feet down the riverbank to Bateman Island, read the informative sign at the Wye Park parking lot. There’s a lot of history and birdlife waiting for you on that small island. Cross the paved 23-mile Sacagawea Heritage Trail (see “Scouting Trails in the Tri-Cities” sidebar) and pass a gate at the entrance to the causeway. Bateman Island was farmed from the 1870s to the 1950s, and you’ll see plenty of evidence of this—old roads, foundations, nonnative trees. A fire swept the island in 2001, and you’ll see evidence of that too.
