This ride offers bicyclists an opportunity to explore historic communities along the lower Columbia River, the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge, and inland timber areas. The ride starts at beautiful Fort Columbia State Park on the bank of the mighty Columbia River. Much of the fort is now maintained in its nineteenth-century condition for visitors to enjoy. A worthwhile detour is Fort Canby State Park where you'll see two lighthouses. Finally you'll pass the Willapa Wildlife Refuge which is an important stopping site for waterbirds and marine life. Terrain: some rolling hills.
