Experience the Oregon Coast on Foot

CoastWalk Oregon includes beach walking …

… and hikes over forested headlands.

Three days, 30 miles

CoastWalk Oregon is a fundraiser for North Coast Land Conservancy and an opportunity to walk up to 30 miles over three days on the Oregon Coast without worrying about wayfinding or other logistics. Staff and volunteers with NCLC are experts on the Oregon Coast. Each year we map out fresh routes, typically following portions of the Oregon Coast Trail.

Our goal is to provide participants with a fun, safe, and hassle-free way to hike a significant distance on hand-picked hiking routes while raising funds to support coastal habitat conservation. Participants arrange their own lodging and dining. We gather and start walking early each day, leaving you most of the afternoon to relax or further explore the Oregon Coast.


All participants and staff are required to be fully vaccinated by the event date, which, according to the CDC, means at least two weeks after receiving the second of two doses of vaccine (or just one from Johnson & Johnson). We recommend you receive a booster as well. If those standards change before the event date, we will update our requirements. You will be required to provide proof of vaccination before the start of CoastWalk Oregon.

Participants may be required to follow additional protocols set by event organizers, which may require social distancing and wearing face coverings at gathering points and on shuttle buses.

If CoastWalk Oregon must be cancelled due to COVID, all registered participants will be offered a full refund (minus $27 in processing fees).


North Coast Land Conservancy has been conserving and connecting land on the Oregon Coast since 1986. In 2016, we launched CoastWalk Oregon, an opportunity to walk 30 miles of the Oregon Coast Trail over three days in September. The funds we raise from CoastWalk Oregon help us conserve important habitat from the Columbia River south to Siletz Bay at Lincoln City.
