The Hood River Waterfront Park and Trail incorporates close to two miles of pedestrian trails with some gaps along the shoreline, as well as parks and open space for public enjoyment. Currently pedestrians, bicyclists, kiteboarders, windsurfers, fishermen, paddlers, boaters, and events attendees are some main users who enjoy recreating Hood River’s Waterfront.

Fun stopping points along the trail include:

  • The Hook – Serves the area as a recreation site for watersports, with a protected cove for beginning windsurfing lessons and other uses.
  • Waterfront Park – Close to six acres of land donated by the Port to the City of Hood River is now a multi-use, family-friendly park.
  • Nichols Basin – Protected cove, beach and launch site for small non-motorized watercraft with a landscaped trail to buffer recreation and future upland development.
  • The Spit / Sandbar – A popular spot for kiteboarding, walking, and relaxing, the size of the Sandbar changes with river levels, and strong currents and unpredictable changes in water depth require extreme caution by users.
  • Marina Park – Lawn areas, open space, beaches and trails create a popular, family-friendly park that includes Marina Park, Boat Marina, Marina Beach, Marina Green, Picnic Shelter, Yacht Club, and the History Museum.

The vibrant community of Hood River is a short walk from the Hood River Waterfront. The city and Hood River Valley offer an abundance of cultural experiences, restaurants, shopping, wineries, breweries, and other recreational opportunities.
