Really loved this walking path! A great way to view the river and the town. It certainly helped that I was there on a beautiful sunny day with the salty sea breeze welcoming me. Easy flat grade and goes past many places to stop. I’d love to bike it or take the trolley; maybe next time!

The river walk in Astoria is so much fun. I did not do the whole thing, but what was done was great. The part I went through goes by a lot of piers with great views of the Columbia. Lots of interpretive signs gives you a great perspective and history of Astoria. Not a lot of great photo opportunities for the bridge, but plenty for the river and the big ships. You can easily spend a good part of the day seeing everything including the Nordic Park. Whatever one decides, it will be a good time.

Just a lovely stroll. We passed several restaurants and short piers that you can walk out and look at the water. Was certainly a bit breezy, so bring a jacket.

Enjoyed the signage along the path describing the history and geology of the area.

Drug addicts along path. If they could get a handle on that problem it would be great. Neat restaurants, view, wildlife.

We work right on the Riverwalk and use it regularly to walk to lunch and to walk our dogs. When the city first established it, it was so much better, but has steadily declined over time. It's still a nice resource to have, but I think between the dog poop and the growing presence of homeless people, often intimidating and with dogs off-leash, I'm using it less and less.

On many occasions, we have watched homeless individuals with dogs allow them to defecate in the middle of the path and make no effort to clean it up. Last week, I was out walking my dog and encountered a group of about 7-8 homeless men sitting on the ground drinking from paper bags at 11 a.m. They were really boisterous as I approached, making quite a scene, but as I passed, they all fell quiet and stared at me as I passed. I don't need to be made to feel uncomfortable just walking in my own town. I would never walk the Riverwalk at night these days, but 10 years ago, I wouldn't have thought twice about it.

Astoria, for as much as you value tourism (especially on the waterfront) and for as much of a draw as the Riverwalk is supposed to be, please do more to ensure that it is maintained for the enjoyment of all. There are terrible weeds and overgrown grass all along the way on city property and much of the charm is wearing off. I'd still recommend it to our visitors and my family will continue to use it, but I just wish it weren't being taken for granted now.

Lovely walk into town from the Cannery Hotel. We never did see any trolley so be sure you have the energy to make it back. Please be careful when walking on the trestle - my friend slipped into one of the slats in her canvas shoe and really hurt herself. Make sure you walk along the side when you reach these couple of spots as its a very easy accident to happen.

My husband and I walked to the maritime museum and back to the cruise port on the Riverwalk. It was a lovely, sunny, warm fall day. Parts of the trail are interesting - there are maritime artifacts, old waterfront building (mostly repurposed), some residential buildings, bridges... just a pleasant and fairly long place to get your 10,000+ steps! The bonus is the Maritime museum at the end (which I reviewed also). The bridges are shared with the local (and I believe, free) trolley, so be aware of that. It seems very safe, at least during the day. We met several friendly locals and their dogs. the Riverwalk provides a nice view of the town. Recommended for sure!

This river walk is a lot of fun. You get to see many boats and many birds while enjoying a beautiful bridge. Then along the path you will find breweries, ice cream shops and museums. I recommend hopping on the trolley to go through the river walk AND walk the path afterwards.

We began at the trolley stop. Unfortunately I was really expecting that we would be closer to the River. Some of the areas we walked past were questionable
especially when we were approached by street people asking for money.

There are a number of attractions, views, and dining along this route. We walked a couple miles and it was a really nice walk, plus you can catch the trolley. Which is nice because once you get down to 6th-10th street and get into the shopping and stores you might not want to carry all your finds back with you!

If you do make this walk, make sure to stop in at Buoy Beer (separate review) for lunch or dinner!
