Discovery Historic Loop

Few places in America offer so many historic and scenic attractions in such close proximity as this inviting urban trail.

The 2.3-mile loop begins on East Evergreen and winds through Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, Officer's Row, and downtown Vancouver, joining the Waterfront Renaissance Trail at Vancouver Landing.

Sights along the way include Fort Vancouver, Pearson Air Museum, Providence Academy, Officers Row, The Vancouver Land Bridge and Esther Short Park. The trail can be covered in 1.5 hours, or enjoyed in sections to allow more time to explore.

Dabney State Recreation Area Trails

The classic summer place, Dabney has been a popular cooling-off swimming and picnic spot for over 50 years. It's easy to see why when you visit. The lower, older part of the park at the west end features an asphalt trail leading down to a classic swimming hole. Large picnic tables and briquette grills and a reservable shelter with electricity fill up quickly on hot days. The newer parts of the park feature a covered, reservable picnic shelter and trails winding through tall bamboo, horsetail, cottonwoods and alders.
