This site explores surveyed and mapped walking routes from Portland to the Coast. The trails and the differing routes are broken into distinct segments and areas from which they originate. The initial portions of this trail system are located in Forest Park and to the area directly north of the park – extending all the way North to Rocky Point Road. These trails were amply described in my book, Portland Forest Hikes, published by Timber Press in 2007.
The Lower Columbia corridor focuses on those trails originating in the northwest corner of Multnomah County, Columbia County and the northern portions of Washington County – basically a swath of forested lands extending westwards along the top of Washington County from Scappoose, past Vernonia and the hamlets of Chapman Landing and Bacona to Highway 47.
