Walk 30 miles of the Oregon Coast Trail and help conserve Oregon’s spectacular coast.

● DATES: September 23-24-25, 2016
● COST: $300
● ROUTE: Columbia River to Cannon Beach
● LENGTH: 10 miles per day, 30 miles total

The border-to-border Oregon Coast Trail begins with 30 spectacular miles—down the wide beaches stretching south from the Columbia River, over forested Tillamook Head, and through the beach towns of Gearhart, Seaside, and Cannon Beach. The staff of North Coast Land Conservancy plans to celebrate the conservancy’s 30th year by spending three days walking those 30 miles. Join us!

This epic adventure is limited to 50 participants. Included:

  • Van shuttle back to each day’s starting point.
  • Hosted mini-celebration at a coastal brewpub at the end of the first and third days. At the end of the second day we’ll send you off with refreshments and munchies.
  • Maps, snacks, water, wayfinding, and a choose-your-own gift.
  • Raffle ticket (one of only 100) for a luxurious coastal getaway.

Your $300 entry fee will help NCLC achieve its anniversary-year goal of raising $30,000 to support coastal conservation; most of that fee is tax-deductible.

Round up a group of friends to join the first CoastWalk Oregon, or come by yourself and walk with us. If you can’t actually join us on the trail, consider sponsoring a staff member—or someone else. Pay your entry fee in full yourself, or raise it by asking friends to sponsor your walk with a tax-deductible contribution to NCLC. Questions? Read our FAQ page.
