This Columbia River site was a crossroads of trade long before the Hudson’s Bay Company established it as a colonial trading post. Lewis and Clark camped here, and Fort Vancouver was built here 20 years later. Today, the site features a 40-foot wide earth-covered pedestrian bridge that arcs over State Route 14, reconnecting historic Fort Vancouver with the Columbia River.
Join Executive Director Colin Fogarty for a tour of the Confluence Land Bridge to hear about the history of this landscape and the origins of Confluence.

The Land Bridge is a one-third of a mile walk over a paved footpath with a mild grade. The takes about an hour. Lunch is an option afterward at various locations in Vancouver a short drive from the Land Bridge.
