Waterfront Renaissance Trail (5 miles)

Waterfront Renaissance Trail along the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington

The Waterfront Renaissance Trail connects Esther Short Park in downtown Vancouver with Wintler Park along a paved five-mile long riverfront trail perfect for walking, jogging, biking or rollerblading. With gorgeous views of the I-5 and I-205 bridges and Mount Hood, this trail is a west Vancouver stunner.

The Water Resources Education Center lies along the trail, as do the Old Apple Tree, Marine Park, Kaiser Viewing Tower and Shipyards, and Tidewater Cove. Along the way are shops, restaurants and great places to picnic, play or just enjoy the view.

Trailheads are located at Wintler Community Park, Marine Park and Waterfront Park in downtown Vancouver.
