Description: Walk daily, dawn to dusk. But register during hours listed above. Revised route for 2018. Scenic, flat route out and back on paved paths and boardwalks along Astoria Columbia River water front. The Astoria Riverwalk is itself a city park. The 10k and 12k options pass by 2 other City Parks, one of which has a restored water fountain. 12k option crosses a wooden boardwalk bridge to Pier 39 with an opportunity to explore a cannery museum.
