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.
