Imagine a trail, linking the Willamette Valley and the Pacific Ocean. Envision traveling at the pace of the Native Americans, early settlers and naturalist explorers for an afternoon, a day, a weekend or a week, through the Oregon Coast Range, rich with history, geology, rural life and a haven for wildflowers, lush forests and wildlife.

Contemplate setting out from home and being able to travel on foot, horse or mountain bike and being able to end up at the Coast. Consider the possibility of a journey, under your own power, where you could learn about and visit local farms, wineries, cottage enterprises, historic sites, small towns, tree farms, salmon-spawning grounds and campgrounds along the way.

A journey such as this could become a reality with the Corvallis-to-the-Sea Trail. The idea is to create a system of connecting trails, all with public access, about 50 miles as the crow flies. With few exceptions, this route will be available all year round and close to home. There are deep forests and open vistas; a wide variety of trees, shrubs, and flowers; and an opportunity to learn about local history and timberland management.

The Corvallis-to-the-Sea Trail will provide you with an opportunity to enjoy the Oregon Coast Range in a way you never could before.

Please see Restrictions before visiting the trail.
