Participants arrange their own lodging
Each morning we will meet at Circle Creek Conservation Center, North Coast Land Conservancy’s 364-acre preserve at the south end of Seaside. We recommend you seek lodging in Seaside or in the nearby towns of Gearhart or Cannon Beach, where a wide range of hotels, motels, and vacation rentals are available. For camping, we recommend private campgrounds in Cannon Beach: Sea Ranch RV park (RVs and tents), Wright’s for Camping (tents), and RV Resort at Cannon Beach (RVs).
Approximate driving time to Circle Creek Conservation Center:
- From downtown Gearhart: 15 minutes
- From downtown Seaside: 10 minutes
- From downtown Cannon Beach: 12 minutes
Don’t delay in making your reservations; September is a busy month for vacationers on the Oregon Coast.
CoastWalk Oregon provides snacks at our midpoint rest stops and lunch at the end of Day Three. Otherwise dining is on your own. We aim to finish the day’s walk by lunchtime. For slower walkers, that may be early afternoon; accordingly, some participants pack a lunch to eat along the way or on the bus shuttle back to their car. We start early in the morning, before most cafes open, so you may want to plan to prepare your own breakfast rather than eat breakfast out. You’ll find a variety of dining options in Gearhart, Seaside, and Cannon Beach.
