The River Walk has been extended east and west of the main part of town in the last couple of years, and is a favorite place for locals and visitors to enjoy the river. You can see the rails of the waterfront trolley, and of course, the Astoria-Megler bridge. To the right are more pilings, as shown in the last few posts, although these are at the west end of town, and the ones I showed previously are located downtown. The walk goes under the bridge and continues along the West Mooring Basin and the boat yards. Visitors who come by cruise ship can walk this way into town if they prefer walking to taking the buses provided. The River walk consists of different types of paving in different places. Here we see the boards that bridge the river. In other places the walk is paved or includes concrete sidewalks. I can remember not long ago when there was no boardwalk on the far west end of the walk, and you traversed the water by walking on the ties of the tracks.
