Bridge Paddle

Water Trail

2 Hours

The kayak launch at Columbia River Park is located underneath the Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge. Paddle upstream to the Route 30 bridge – built in 1972; cross the river and touch the shore of Wrightsville; then paddle downstream and back across the river between the Columbia-Wrightsville bridge and the bridge ruins, which date back to 1834. On the last Sunday in June, the bridge ruins are set ablaze as a commemoration of the 1863 bridge burning.
