Hike this perfectly flat trail along the teeming-with-wildlife White-Tail Slough on the Columbia River. Look toward the river for waterfowl and look to the rich bottomlands for the rare and federally endangered Columbian white-tailed deer. The Julia Butler Hansen Refuge for the Columbian White-Tailed Deer was established in 1972 to protect habitat for its endangered namesake deer. The refuge includes bottomland forests, open pastures, river islands, and lazy sloughs that may make you feel like you’re in the American South rather than the Pacific Northwest.
