Clean and peaceful walking paths along the river banks. Great views of Hood and the Columbia. Plenty of parking spots and room to meander on the trails. Great place to have a family picnic with grills and tables. Restrooms are open. Recommend going at sunset for a nice shady stroll and views of the sun setting behind the mountains. We didn't come across any bug issues. Enjoy and keep the park clean!

Definitely not the most exciting walk, but the trail is a nice, flat, accessible dirt road. A decent stretch goes along an industrial area, but gets prettier once you’re past it on the eastern end, where you can get a view of Vista House across the Columbia River. There is currently a section that is closed off to the public due to construction. Also, there’s no shortage of mosquitoes this time of year, so bring bug spray!

It’s really easy walking but no shade! It’s better do it on a cloudy day. Also, the trail was closed at mile 2 so back and forth it will be 4miles total.

Nice wide gravel path for anyone. Nice views of the river and spots to jet off at a little beach

I went to the end of the trail where it meets a private property. Easy walk - just don't forget sunscreen because there is little to no tree cover. This would be a great place for a quick bike ride or jog. I'm itching to go back to see the sunrise. There is no beach to walk on due to runoff.

Easy dike trail. Could not go around lake because dogs are not allowed.

Though this trail is probably better experienced on bike, I enjoyed the out and back walk. I combined the entire length of this hike with the Steigerwald National Wildlife Refuge walk, making for a fairly long round trip at a fast pace. The river and gorge views were especially enjoyable. It was cool to see Crown Point and the Vista House from a new long distance perspective. Back to bikes though, keep in mind that the nature trail connected on the east end does not allow bikes, running or dogs since it is a wildlife refuge. Unfortunately the dike trail was completely flooded, so I didn't get to explore that cool feature.

Great for walking the dog, going for a jog, or if you live in the neighborhood. Coming from Portland, this is not a scenic walk I will make an effort to travel again.

You walk right past the water sanitation facility and then later walk next to the transfer station. Other than that it’s an easy gravel path along the Columbia right outside the city.

Some great views and easy access, but have to trek past open sewage puts. The stink is horrific.
