Touchet Valley Trail

A trail connecting the rural communities of Dayton and Waitsburg has long been a dream.  The Port of Columbia has been working diligently to make that dream a reality since it was first identified as a priority at Columbia County’s 2015 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy meeting.  The 9.7 mile trail is included in the Blue Mountain Region Trails plan and is now ready for concept design and engineering in 2019.

The Port has received grants from the National Park Service and WSDOT that will aid in the design of the trail.  The project will be led by a steering committee who will engage in public outreach to ensure the final trail meets our community needs.
