Columbia River Walk Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is a great-wide-open, middle-of-nowhere, get-out-and-stretch-your-legs walk. Though it passes by several heavy-industry areas, with all the accompanying toxic leftovers, it also incorporates some of the more interesting natural features of the Portland region and the site of a historic residential development that was needlessly destroyed in a flood. In short, this walk provides plenty of opportunity to meditate on things that have vanished without a trace, as well as the things we leave behind that can never be completely erased. There’s not a lot in the way of refreshments or entertainment out here, so bring whatever supplies you might need, and prepare to cover a bit of ground."
