The cities of Astoria and Warrenton are located in the very northwest corner of the State of Oregon, a 2-hour drive from Downtown Portland. This location is where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean and is rich in history. The Lewis and Clark Expedition spent the winter of 1805-06 at Fort Clatsop, just southwest of Astoria. There was a large fur trading business in this area as well as logging in the 19th century.

The climate in this area is quite pleasant with mild temperatures year round, though there can be quite along of rain during the fall and winter. It is also a great place to view the coastal waterfowl and other wildlife. The surrounding area is heavily forested, yet there are beautiful views along the coast and waterfront.

Astoria River Walk

The Astoria River Walk is 5 miles of paved pathways and wooden boardwalks along the waterfront of the City of Astoria. There are piers that you can walk out on to view the beautiful steel Astoria - Megler Bridge. There are other attractions along the way, such as the Columbia River Maritime Museum. The Astoria River Walk follows along the abandoned railway bed of he Burlington Northern Railroad and is part of the Rails-to-Trails program. There is also the Astoria Riverfront Trolley which runs along part of this section.

The west end of the trail starts at Smith Point, near where Highway 101 crosses Young's River. From here the trail heads to the east along Industry Street. Once you are east of Portway Street you begin to see the sights of the docks, the marinas and the piers jutting out into the river. The charter boats take off from this area and there are hotels, restaurants and other tourist attractions including the Maritime Memorial. There are also many dramatic views of the Astoria - Megler Bridge spanning over the Columbia River.

As you head farther east on the trail, it goes by the Columbia River Maritime Museum and Pier 39, eventually taking you out along the edge of the Alderbrook Lagoon. A side path will take you around to the south side of the lagoon down to Cedar Street.

Fort Stevens State Park

Fort Stevens State Park has over 5-miles of hiking trails and 7-miles of bike paths for you to experience this historical area. This was the site of the Fort Stevens Military Reservation from the time of the Civil War through World War II. The park is located on a peninsula with the Pacific Ocean to the west and the mouth of the Columbia River to the north and east. It is a beautiful location where the forest meets the dunes and is a rich habitat for wildlife and waterfowl. Take note that there are fee areas in this park.

Skipanon River Loop Trail

The Skipanon River Loop Trail is a 2-mile soft-surfaced trail that follows along the Skipanon River as it flows through the City of Warrenton. The Skipanon River is a tidal river that flows out to the Columbia River. Here you can see the local waterfowl, such as Great Blue Herons and Commorants. The trail is close to the center of Warrenton, but the portion that runs along the east banks goes through a natural area along a Sitka Spruce forest.

Warrenton Waterfront Trail

The Warrenton Waterfront Trail is a 2.5 mile paved trail that goes from NE 1st Street and Main Avenue in the center of Warrenton and heads north out to the river. There is a short stretch where you need to walk along the road. This trail takes you to the Warrenton Dog Park and Carruthers Memmorial Park and near Hammond Boat Basin and Seafarer's Park. The north end of the trail has beautiful views looking back toward the Astoria-Megler Bridge crossing the Columbia River to Washington.
