Columbia River Heritage Trail

Bruce on the trail.Me on the trail.MarinaColumbia RiverMarkerTrail MarkerWe started early this morning for the trail. A friend of ours dropped us off at the trail head in Umatilla, Oregon. We had our packs and of course Ellen, our lab came along. The trail mostly follows the river but sometimes curves away from it a little so you have to search to see it. This trail is in the desert and the temp. started climbing by about 10am. We saw deer and Bruce found two markers. I think they are benchmarks but not sure. We saw some beautiful country and met some very nice people. The trail takes you through the marina in Irrigon and the fish hatchery just outside of town. By about 1:30pm I was getting pretty tired in the heat so we ended our hike a little earlier than we planned but still went 15 miles. Will finish the hike on to Sail board beach and the Boardman marina another day.

  1. Sounds like you got a workout. Better trail to do in winter I’d say. Thanks for the pics of the area.
