The Lewis and Clark Heritage Trail—also known as The Columbia River Dike Trail—follows the Columbia River from Steamboat Landing Park to the border of the Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge. This park will soon be aligned with the Washougal Waterfront Park and trail creating a long connected walking trail both into Camas and Washougal. Along the way, trail-goers will enjoy views of the river and Mt. Hood, wildlife, beautiful resting areas and historical interpretive signage. The heritage trail is also home to many charity runs and walking events each year.
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.
