The Sacagawea Heritage Trail is a scenic river trek along the Columbia River through the Tri-Cities of Richland, Kennewick and Pasco in southeastern Washington. The trail is a 23-mile blacktop loop trail with portions on both sides of the Columbia River.
Begin your journey in Richland at Columbia Point Marina Park, where the trail meets the Richland Riverfront Trail. From there, the trail parallels I-182/US 12 before crossing the Yakima River and running through the Riverview Natural Preserve and Yakima Delta Wildlife Nature Area along State Route 240. In Kennewick, the trail rejoins the southern bank of the Columbia River and passes through a number of city parks. At the western edge of the city, trail users can access Bateman Island, featuring 160 acres perfect for bird-watching, fishing and hiking.
Three highway bridges link the two sides of the trail, and they all feature separated paths for safe non-motorized travel. The southernmost river crossing is via the Cable Bridge—also known as the Ed Hendler Bridge and the Intercity Bridge—which takes trail users to the City of Pasco. A short distance to the east of the bridge is the Sacajawea State Park, featuring a museum and a host of allowed outdoors activities at the confluence of the Columbia and Snake rivers. To the east of the Cable Bridge, the trail follows the Columbia River for several miles through Pasco to the I-182 Bridge.
