Cathedral Tree to Astoria Column Professional Review and Guide

"This route explores a unique coastal forest right in the heart of Astoria. You’ll get to view a 300-year-old Sitka spruce tree and climb to the top of the historic, 125-foot Astoria Column. From the top of the column, you’ll have gorgeous views of downtown Astoria and the Columbia River. Trail surface: Forest path, steps, wooden ramps.

As the oldest settlement west of the Rocky Mountains, Astoria is dotted with historical Victorian homes and has several museums dedicated to preserving its history. The town is named after John Jacob Astor, who helped to establish Fort Astoria in 1811.The area began to grow when settlers, many of whom were of Scandinavian descent, arrived in the area in the 1840s. The town is located on the south side of the Columbia River not far from the Columbia Bar (the mouth of the Columbia
River)."
