Viewing Location: CZ Trail

The Crown Z Trail is a former logging trail through rural areas of Columbia County that connects to the Banks-Vernonia State Trail in Vernonia. The trail starts in Scappoose on the Multnomah Channel at Chapman Landing and transverses through the forested areas of Columbia County to Vernonia Lake. The Crown Z Trail is a partially paved, partially gravel linear trail that is perfect for any season of recreational fun. Walking, hiking, horseback riding, or biking are all options at various points in the trek. Multiple trailheads are located along this scenic 23- mile trail, from the Chapman Landing Trailhead in Scappoose to the Holce Street Trailhead in Vernonia. Certain trailheads offer parking and picnic areas, public restrooms and bicycle repair stations for visitors to use at their leisure.
