The Riverfront Trail at The Dalles is a beautiful paved trail that traces the south bank of the Columbia River at the historic “bend in the river,” where the Columbia takes a dramatic 90-degree turn from its east-west flow to a north-south direction.
The Riverfront Trail at The Dalles winds along the southern bank of the Columbia River for eight miles between The Discovery Center to the northwest and The Dalles Riverfront Park at the eastern terminus. The asphalt-paved trail is 8- to 12-feet wide, making it perfect for bicyclists, walkers with dogs or strollers, joggers, and many others. The majority of the Riverfront Trail is ADA accessible.
Wide bike path from The Gorge Discovery Center & Museum on west end of The Dalles, 10 miles to east end of The Dalles. Also, many geocaches are located along this trail.
Ammenities along the Riverfront Trail include restrooms (the Pocket Park and The Dalles Dam Visitor Center), easy access to downtown The Dalles, numerous benches, and distribution points for small baggies to be used by dog walkers (thank you for collecting your pet’s product distribution).
