BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The "mouth" of the water trail is in Ilwaco, and it can be accessed either at the Port of Ilwaco or at Waikiki Beach in Cape Disappointment State Park.
  • In addition to sites and access points, the trail has numerous campsites along its 146-mile distance.
The 146-mile trail, which is really a series of river sections, covers the Lower Columbia River from Bonneville Dam to the Pacific Ocean. The goal was to create a trail that people in non-motorized boats—i.e. kayaks and canoes—could safely travel for a day or several days, with interesting sites and access points along the way.
