If you are an avid hiker or backpacker, skip this one. At about a mile each way, it's a boring trail to an uninteresting tree as you've probably seen thousands of others that elicited more oohs and ahhs than this one.

Fairly easy trail. November 7 2015. Raining hard. Very foggy was so beautiful.

Very nice! Just right to let the terriers burn off some energy before walking around downtown Astoria. It took about 1.75 hours and there was enough incline to make my heart sit up and pay attention. No gnats! And s pretty spot by the creek near the end.

This is an absolutely awesome trip through the woods! 100% runnable, a bit of mud in the winter, but usable year-round. I have run it dozens of times and rarely see another user. Highly recommend!

Great mild challenge for the family. My youngest is 5 and she did well. Will do it again for sure!

Fun trail. The Column is one of my favorite places in Astoria. A spiral staircase leads to an observation deck at the top with beautiful views of Astoria.

I did the upper portion of this trail past the hatchery. Once you leave the interpretative nature trail portion the trail narrows into a normal hiking trail. It follows along the ravine up the creek going through lovely stands of conifers. There is a fair amount of elevation gain on this portion, I'd put it at around 700 ft, and the trail was approx 2.5 miles long.

Enjoyed this trail today with my wife and daughters. Pretty short and the trail was easy walking. Very scenic especially for us being Midwesterners. First hike of our vacation and this was a great little taste of what Oregon offers. The column was great with beautiful views. The girls launched their little planes and had a blast taking it all in.

I love Astoria, it will always have a place in my heart. The column is cool but I'm more of a nature fan. It's pretty awesome that it is lit up at night though. Wish the park was open at night. Of course we did the stairs to the top and went out on the observation deck. That was enjoyable.

Trail has been widened all the way through by the forest crew. Very nice Climb, nice loop at end of the trail with a few benches to sit for lunch.
