Lower Columbia River Water Trail
Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation, in partnership with more than 18 agencies and organizations, led an effort to develop a plan for providing greater access to and increased knowledge of the waterways in western Clark County. The launch point is located at Ridgefield Boat Launch, located at the end of Mill Street and Lake River. The plan mapped and designed the water trail through the lowland areas of the Lewis River, Lake River, Bachelor Slough, Vancouver Lake and a portion of the Lower Columbia River.
