Over sixty miles of the Columbia River grace the north and east boundaries of Columbia County. Extensive trail networks run through the hills. Camping is available in many city and county parks. Each year, the Seattle to Portland Bike Race passes through, the region's yacht clubs visit and the waters fill with kayakers.
Minutes from Portland, over sixty miles of the world famous Columbia River shape Columbia County. The Columbia River offers a unique opportunity to fish year round. Well over a million salmon and steelhead enter the Columbia River to journey upstream to their natal rivers, annually. Sturgeon, a prehistoric fish reaching lengths of 10 feet, also inhabit the Columbia River.
