Trail Description Driving DirectionsEnjoy a walk on the newest trail in the Gorge! Providing stunning views of the Columbia River and Mt Hood this trail is the latest connection of the Gorge Towns to Trails project! This is a one mile, out-and-back, ADA-accessible paved path. Not only is this a gem in the community but it is a significant link in connecting the vision of a 30-mile continuous trail going west to Stevenson and east to Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. Enjoy a grassy park area, a picnic shelter, solar powered restrooms and a non-motorized vehicle launch (kayak, canoe, paddle). This is an excellent hike for families or those looking for a relaxing stroll along the river.
