Scappoose Veterans Park

Reviewed By DiogenesRedux - Scappoose, Oregon

From baseball fields and bocce courts, to a playground for the little ones and an off-leash area for the family pup, Scappoose Veterans Park has something for the entire family. My own favorite activity here is the paved walking path that winds around the entire area. a few turns on it each night has very much increased my health as well as improved my overall mood after even the most stressful day at work.

Pumpkin Ridge Zip Tour

Family friendly zip tour featuring 8 zip lines through beautiful forests, across majestic suspension bridges, and near breath-taking Brunswick Canyon. This tour is an amazing way to experience the natural landscape of Oregon while zipping through the forest canopy. You will soar past tall Douglas Firs, Western Red Cedars, and experience the forest from a viewpoint usually exclusive to birds.

My 11-year-old daughter and I had a great experience. Ben and Lauren were wonderful guides. They made everything comfortable--even for people with a fear of heights, like me. The tour was a little shorter than advertised, but I think that was mostly because we had a smaller group. The trade-off was more personal attention from the guides. I highly recommend.

Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge

Reviewed By simivalley1699 - Washington, the State

We had a marvelous time exploring the various trails - some were out in the open, and others in the woodsy area. The oak trees are absolutely amazing - great descriptions are available to learn about the vegetation. We watched a heron trying to catch his dinner.

We heard they were serving their boozy ice cream and made the trip over the hill to check it out. Of course we had to try (or re-try) the vodka and grog, but then on to the business of ice cream! The flavors were delicious...MoreThanks a Bunch for coming back and then writing a review about it. It really is much appreciated. llw

Fibers & Stitches

Reviewed By jaimn - Olympia, Washington

We stopped in to get out of the rain and explore the fabrics. The shop has a lot of panels and a lot of color options! There were many projects on the shelves for ideas, along with beautiful quilts on the walls. Prices were average for SWW quilt shops, just without the tax (yea!). I ended up not buying anything but the owner still printed me out a map to get back home - and avoid crossing the busy highway. Shop is on the right going south, so one must either cross the highways without a light or go the residential long way to get back north. I look forward to stopping by again and actually buying something as a thank-you.

Crown Zellerbach Trail

Reviewed By rh2340 - Deer Island, Oregon

I have spent may hours of volunteer work in helping to develop this trail. This 20 mile trail does have flat and wide places but also has a railroad grade hill. The ultimate plan is to connect this trail to the Banks Vernonia trail. Both Trails are supposed to allow Equestrian use. But the paved Banks Vernonia Trail makes it unsafe for horses and their riders. (Black top is slippery, Noiseless bike riders spook horses when coming up from behind) Equestrians have donated many hours of trail work on the Crown Zellerbach. Columbia County Parks has been committed in keeping the trail gravel instead of paved. Most mount bikers also wants to keep most of the trail unpaved. It used to be possible to ride/hike to Camp Wilkerson from the Crown Z from around Scaponia Park/Camp Eight. Not sure if possible since Wyerhaeuser policy changes regarding trespass. The intersecting logging roads between the CZ trail and Camp Wilkerson is a mish-mash of County, State and private roads and easments. The CZ trail is a great place to walk and ride, with a large variety of vista's and views.

St. Helens Visitors Center

There are so many things to do and see in South Columbia county. Two popular movies have had scenes filmed here and there are plenty of historic, haunted and scenic attractions in this town and county. October is the busiest month of the entire year for us as we have a month long Halloween celebration, called the Spirit of Halloweentown. We are Halloweentown! Come on down and get all the info!

Reviewed By Ann T - Bury St. Edmunds, United Kingdom

The visitor centre is great and chronicles the eruption of Mt St Helens in an excellent way. The drive up is beautiful and the effect of the eruptions unfolds as the drive climbs the mountain. The scenery is dramatic yet beautiful. Absolutely fascinating if you are interested in volcanoes but a great place to visit for the landscape.

Scappoose Veterans Memorial

Reviewed By Kalamariverrat - Rainier, Oregon

This memorial is very nicely done, and is a tribute to all those who have served. Most folks don't know that one of the Doolittle Raiders of WWII fame enlisted from Scappoose. Jake DeShazer survived the war, then returned to Japan as a missionary, where he served for many years. "Forgive your enemies."
