This a nice walk along the Columbia River to the old Warrior Rock Lighthouse, Oregon's smallest lighthouse. This walk follows along the shore of the Columbia River to a very cool old lighthouse that used to direct shipping traffic up the Columbia River. It is Oregon's smallest lighthouse and is one of only two that are not on the Pacific Ocean.

An easy flat hike, especially for kids. Great beach cove to picnic and wade in the river at the lighthouse. Make sure to get a parking permit at the store at the bottom of the bridge. You will get a ticket!

Make sure you pack mosquito repellant. A lot of people on the trail. it's worth it for the end view.

I enjoyed the hike. It's pretty muddy during the winter in some spots.

Trail is fun on the beaches, muddy forest path not so much. A good place for a walk but not really worth the price of admission.

A good walk through the trees along the shoreline. Nice, flat, fairly shaded "hike", but lots of ruts and mud at the start. Crowded. I was able to take my dogs onto the beach and they totally loved it!

This is one of my favorite summer hikes. I have done it many times. Works perfect for an easy solo hike. I usually get out there before 10 with a packed lunch and towel. It works out great to hike the 3 miles out, relax, enjoy the sun and eat lunch on the pretty much secluded beach. I see a few people each time but never more than a dozen or so. I have never had a parking problem and since I use Sauvie Island almost every weekend in the summer paying for a yearly parking pass is worth it. The ONLY thing I am bugged by is the mosquitoes can be pretty bad along certain parts of the trail so just need to remember repellant and your are good to go.
