This is one of the newest Rails to Trails efforts in Oregon. You will start your ride at a parking area at Chapman Landing and end on Route 47 north of Pittsburg and Vernonia. The trail follows an old logging road along the Scappoose Vernonia Highway. It is rough in some places.

First few miles are paved and lined with trailer parks or highways with frequent homeless dodging in and out of the pathway.

Lots of asphalt, broken and intact. It was nice to run a local trail that isn't filled with lots of hills and elevation.

Parking can be tricky depending on what trailhead you start at.

We own Dingman Farm to the south of the CZ between Deane Drive and Pioneer. As you walk through our place, you will hear our chickens clucking and turkeys gobbling. You will also be greeted by our dogs who love to have visitors, they're noisy but friendly. So say hi, be nice and enjoy the beauty of this wonderful Columbia County Park Trail.

Went on the CZ trail today from hwy 30 to the water. It was open and didn't have too much poop on the path (some animal scar but not crazy)
