A smooth, shady trail that takes you to the northern tip of Sauvie Island and Warrior Rock Lighthouse. Columbia River views. Escape from the city to enjoy the solitude of this island run. The route travels through a thick cottonwood forest to the northern tip of Sauvie Island along the sandy shores of the Columbia River. Large freighters, tugs, and other ships can be seen sailing up the Columbia to the port of Portland. Wildlife abounds, from great blue herons to bald eagles, not to mention some of the bovine species. At your halfway point you can view the white-washed beacon of Warrior Rock Lighthouse, which rests on a sandy beach at the tip of the island. If you run this trail in the fall, golden leaves line the trail with their end-of-the-season brilliance.
