About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

A great paved path that walks along the riverfront taking you between Union Bridge and Minto Bridge. You can extend your walk in either direction by continuing into Wallace Marine Park from Union Bridge and into Minto Brown trail system from Minto Bridge.  As you get closer to Minto Bridge you’ll pass by the playground and a building with a carousel which can be a fun spot to stop for a picnic along the way.

There are some parts where you’ll be walking near the road and you’ll likely be sharing the path with bicyclists.

I enjoy exploring new trails and rediscovering trails we’ve explored before in new seasons. Connecting with other families that are up for adventures is a great fit for our family and I only wish it had existed when I was first starting out on this Mom journey.

During the week most of our hikes are fairly close to home to accommodate our current nap, school, and work schedules, but no matter how big or small we like to get outside on adventures.   When we have more time we try to sneak a little further from home to explore the coast, Columbia Gorge or out to the mountains.   Personally, I am drawn to any hike involving waterfalls so when I get a chance I am trying to find new ones to explore and find.  My husband and I enjoyed hiking before having kids and are now trying to raise our boys to love the outdoors as well, and look forward to many adventures in our future.
