The Columbia River Dike Trail—also known as the Captain William Clark Park Trail and the Cottonwood Beach Trail—follows the Columbia River from Steamboat Landing Park to the border of the Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge. Along the way, trail-goers will enjoy views of the river and Mt. Hood.
The trail parallels Cottonwood Beach and is named for Lewis and Clark, who camped there in 1806. Walkers may enjoy taking a partial loop back on the Gibbons Creek Wildlife Trail in the adjacent wildlife area.
Take Lewis and Clark Highway/SR 14 east to Washougal. Turn right (south) on 15th Street into Steamboat Landing Park and park at the trailhead.
