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.

Easy trail with a great payoff! On a clear day, the views of Helens are amazing.

Love this place! Nice easy walk that is usually lightly traveled in the “off” months. Great beach at the end for the dogs to play on!

Family friendly, trails are clear, not too busy (we went on Labor Day). Kids will bring swimsuits for the beach area by the lighthouse next time. Didn't know about having a parking permit, hope I didn't get a ticket. I'll probably go back soon with a small group of friends for a nice trail run, great distance!

This is an easy hike except where the trail is overgrown and pushing through the thicket is necessary. Which is fun in its own right. No water covering the trail anymore. Just watch out for blackberry branches that can jump out and scratch you.

Trail still flooded about 1 mile in. The water has gone down from about 3 weeks ago.

Nice hike but currently has several sections of trail underwater. Hikers can make it through, but you have to be willing to wade thru up to 1 1/2' of water. Will post pics.

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.

It's long and hot but a beautiful beach at the end and beach walk in the beginning . Lots of birds we even saw seals in the water

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!
