Astoria Riverwalk

Astoria Riverwalk Professional Review and Guide

"Portland’s beach resort town of the early 1900s sits on the north-western tip of Oregon, where the Columbia River empties into the Pacific Ocean. Lewis and Clark’s 8,000-mile trek in search of the Northwest Passage brought them here in 1805, making this town the West’s oldest American settlement and a National Historic District. Later, the Spokane, Portland & Seattle Railway brought cityfolk to the beach on Friday night for a week-end on the coast.

Today bridges and boardwalks, canneries and cafes, docks and decks, galleries and espresso stops decorate the riverfront with history, views, and yuppie delights. Surface: The developed portion is paved or planked trestles. The trestles are filled with ballast east of 41st; west of 6th Street, they’re open. Location: Smith Point to Tongue Point, Astoria, in Clatsop County."

"The Paved Airport Dike Trail is part of a network of trails built on the dikes that keep the Warrenton-Hammond community above water. Notwithstanding the roar and whine of Coast Guard aircraft periodically landing and taking off.

The path leads you through a quiet backwater, literally; you're close to the water's edge the entire way, especially at high tide."
