Foot Traffic has been locally owned and operated for over 18 years with 5 different locations including Freemont, Downtown Portland, Sellwood, Cedar Hills and Vancouver.  Foot Traffic set out to be more than Oregon’s premiere running & walking shoe stores and was founded on the principle that a small business has a far more salient purpose than simply selling great running shoes, apparel & accessories. Their commitment is to the betterment of runners and walkers and the community. They definitely live their mission hosting free runs weekly at all their stores, directing three world-class running events, hosting numerous training clinics and donating to various local schools, teams and non-profits.

Welcome to Washougal, incorporated in 1908, it was the site of some of the very earliest American settlers and pioneers in the Washington Territory. Beautifully bordered by the Columbia and Washougal Rivers, the Washougal area is filled with many family friendly parks, hiking trails, businesses and neighborhoods. Approximately 14,500 residents call Washougal home.
Downtown Washougal’s Reflection Plaza plays host to many community events all year around. Set along Main Street in Washougal, it is close to the Washougal Town Square, Pendleton Woolen Mills Outlet Store and the Two Rivers Heritage Museum.
Thanks to creation of a pedestrian tunnel, visitors can move safely from downtown to the Columbia River for fishing at Steamboat Landing or walks down the levee trail to Capt. William Clark Park. Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge features 1,049 acres of former Columbia River floodplain with more than 200 species of birds having been recorded. The Washougal River provides year-round recreation including kayaking, fishing and swimming.
At Marina Park visitors can stroll the walking paths, picnic on a table or under a tree or on the deck overlooking the busy marina. Boaters of all types moor and launch their watercraft year round to enjoy all the Columbia River has to offer.
Captain William Clark Park at Cottonwood Beach has 85 acres of walk paths, picnic tables and covered cooking areas. The park, once known simply as “Cottonwood Beach,” commemorates the historical site where Lewis and Clark’s Corps of Discovery camped for six days along their journey in 1806.
Washougal is fortunate to be a short 20-minute drive from the Portland International Airport (PDX) and sits at the mouth of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge.
It is easy to see why visitors Keep Discovering Washougal!
