Umatilla, Oregon, is a rural desert community at the southern tip of the I–82 bridge across the Columbia River. It connects the Yakima Valley wine country of Washington to Oregon. The historic trail begins and ends at riverside parks. Surface: Gravel. Location: Umatilla County, 3 miles from the town of Umatilla. Ride or walk this trail on a sunny day—and most days here are sunny—and you’ll know you’re in heaven. The trail is hot and unshaded, however; bring water, serious sunscreen, and a hat. McNary Beach Park, on the western end, lies adjacent to the dam that in 1953 flooded miles of Oregon-Washington Railroad and Navigation Company (OWR&N) line and several towns upriver.
