Sams-Walker Nature Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"One of the quietest trails in the Columbia River gorge, Sams-Walker is perfect for leisurely morning and evening strolls and nature contemplation any time of day. Stroll along this virtually level, barrier-free trail through attractive oak and ash forest and riverside fields, listening to birdsong and watching for deer. Rife with history as well as wildlife, this natural area was home to native peoples before it was homesteaded by german immigrants in the 1880s. Later, the Sams family raised fourteen children here on their dairy farm (and an eponymous Walker married into the Sams family, hence the trail’s name)."
