A virtual walk on the Oregon Coast Trail

September 10, 2020

Did you miss the live event?

Watch a recording of the presentation HERE.

The Oregon Coast Trail is a border-to-border hiking route first proposed about 50 years ago and first declared “hikeable” in the 1980s. But it remains a work in progress. And people have actually been walking some version of the Oregon Coast Trail for a very long time. How long? And how does one go about planning a thru-hike on the OCT today?

Join author and NCLC communications coordinator Bonnie Henderson for a virtual presentation about the OCT: its geological and human history and the quirks of hiking this unique long-distance trail. Her new guidebook to backpacking the Oregon Coast Trail will be available in Fall 2021.

Why Sept. 10? This would have been the evening CoastWalk Oregon 2020 participants met in Seaside for orientation before embarking on three days of hiking on the OCT. Instead, NCLC is offering this talk to would-be participants and anyone else interested in learning more about the OCT. Door prizes too; join us!
