From Columbia Point Marina Park at the south end to USS Triton Submarine Memorial Park in the north, the Richland Riverfront Trail offers seven miles of scenic paved trail immediately adjacent to the roaring Columbia River. Along the way, the trail links Howard Amon Park, Leslie Groves Park and the edge of the campus of Washington State University Tri-Cities. Trail users will enjoy the public art and scenic views of the river.

There is a short gap in the trail near the university; trail users should take Harris Avenue for a few blocks until the trail resumes at Sprout Road in the north and Ferry Road in the south. At the trail's northern endpoint, be sure to check out the sail of the USS Triton, a decommissioned nuclear submarine. The memorial also features an informational display about the history of the vessel and the region's significant contributions to the nuclear history of the United States. Indeed, the famous Hanford Site—once home to the world's first full-scale plutonium production reactor—is located a short distance north of Richland.

At Columbia Point Marina Park, the trail directly connects to the Sacagawea Heritage Trail for an even longer excursion along the Columbia River through the Tri-Cities area.
