Columbia Plateau–Amber Lake

Columbia Plateau–Amber Lake Professional Review and Guide

"This 23-mile scenic corridor currently passes through the heart of the wildlife-rich Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. The route offers opportunities to see interpretive panels, numerous wildlife species, and associated scenic landscapes.

Trail signage indicates key features along the trail, as well as mile markers with numbers referencing the distance from Portland, Oregon, as established by the Spokane–Portland–Seattle Railroad in the early 1900s. The old railroad right-of-way slices through the heart of one of the richest wildlife areas in Washington. From the trailhead, amble to the south and enjoy the desert scenery on both sides of the trail."
