Government Island (in the Columbia River northeast of Portland) is a series of islands accessible by boat only. There are two docks and a floating tie-up on the north side of the main island. Although restrooms are located throughout, rules signs and restrooms also are located at West Lemon Island, SE Lemon, Commodore (near I205 north), Government Island Landing (west dock), Bartlett Landing (east dock), SE McGuire, and about two miles east of south I-205 (South Beach) With 15 miles of shoreline, the park is popular with anglers. Camping is permitted below the vegetation line around the perimeter and in a few upland areas where picnic tables and a shelter have been installed. There are trails along the north side of Lemon and Government Islands. The interior is accessible by permit only. The interior of the island is still used as a cattle ranch and also contains protected natural areas.

Was a nice place,easy to walk because it’s flat.

This is a nice trail. I stayed at a nearby hotel and ran to the trail. It’s flat with nice views of the Columbia and Mount Hood. There were a few homeless people around; just mentioning that because of the reviews below.

It's hard to imagine a better running trail for anyone interested in aviation, as there are many great views on planes in the air and in the ground.

I second that on the rollerblading (below comment) it’s a great path- nicely paved. Great for all kinds of wheels, if it’s just for a leisure stroll or high intensity running, This is the spot. Great spot for you sunset watchers.
4 stars- because parking can be sketchy- either see a car with broken window or shattered glass left behind

My window got busted open. The trail was nice but not worth $253.00

Some trails are not super roller skate friendly, but this one is. I took it across the 205 bridge and had someone pick me up on the other side. It is really a very nice path for wheels of any kind. I love watching the birds and river on one side and planes taking off and landing on the other.
