Adventuring: 40:40:5 Peter Iredale
Again this is not a trail, but a nice walk along the beach with an amazing destination. Fort Stevens State Park contains destination spots that will thrill almost anyone. Empty fort ruins are there to explore, trails to walk or bike, camping, you can see where the Columbia River meets the Ocean, and my favorite; the Peter Iredale Wreck. This cargo ship heading to Portland to pick up a shipment of wheat for the UK wrecked in 1906 and instantly became a tourist attraction. Over the years there are still skeleton remains of this giant vessel.
