Riverfront Trail at The Dalles

The Riverfront Trail at The Dalles winds along the southern bank of the Columbia River for ten miles between The Discovery Center to the northwest and The Dalles Dam Visitor Center 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.

Amenities 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).

The Riverfront Trail is accessible approximately every mile of the six miles between The Discovery Center and Riverfront Park. There are no access points between the Riverfront Park and the Lone Pine residential development, as the trail parallels the busy I-84 corridor.
