The section of the Columbia Plateau Trail described here is the only part of that trail that is presently paved. For kids that like trains, this is a great hike. You may get a close look at a train on a parallel track or crossing overhead on a bridge. This hike can be made one-way, cutting the total distance in half, if a car shuttle to the Fish Lake Trailhead can be arranged. The Columbia Plateau Trail is a Rails-to-Trails project. Even though pedestrians have the right-of-way over bicyclists, it is always a good idea to be courteous and move to the side to allow them to pass safely. The most common users of this section of the Columbia Plateau Trail are bicyclists. Horses and motorized vehicles are prohibited. This portion of the Columbia Plateau Trail is accessible for people with physical challenges.
