The tracks are gone, but the railroad's right-of-way forms part of the popular 113-mile John Wayne Pioneer Trail for hiking, biking and horseback riding. In the winter the trail accommodates snowmobiles, dog sleds and cross country skiing. This 100 mile portion stretches from Cedar Falls near North Bend to the Columbia River near Vantage and is managed by the Iron Horse State Park.
