North Coast Land Conservancy invites you to join CoastWalk Oregon: 30 miles of hiking on the Oregon Coast Trail in three days. This year’s walk puts us on the northernmost stretch of this epic trail: from the south jetty of the Columbia River, down the state’s longest beach, and over Tillamook Head, in and out of some of Oregon’s favorite beach towns, with a bonus walk on the acclaimed Fort to Sea Trail.
We take care of the logistics; all you have to do is walk.
“I’ll never look at the Oregon Coast the same way again.”

“A great reason to spend time with good friends, in a favorite place, for a good cause.”
—Marcia, Seattle WA, CWO 2016-2017-2019

After a Thursday evening orientation in Seaside, CoastWalk Oregon 2020 starts Friday morning—Day One—with a stroll through the dunes at the Columbia River south jetty and a nearly 10-mile walk down Oregon’s longest, widest beach. Day Two begins at historic Fort Clatsop with a walk on the Fort to Sea Trail and ends with a beach walk to Gearhart. Day Three begins with a beach walk at Seaside and a hike up and over Tillamook Head to end near the town of Cannon Beach.
Every day of CoastWalk Oregon 2020 starts with a shuttle pick-up at Circle Creek Conservation Center in Seaside.
