Corvallis to the Sea Trail

The C2C Trail will officially open on June 6, 2020 with a ribbon cutting ceremony. More information will follow.

These are some of the Partnership's accomplishments over the past few years...

  • Technical assistance grant from National Park Service Trails Assistance Program
  • Siuslaw National Forest permission to flag proposed trail segments
  • C2C Volunteers logged over 9,000 hours in the field doing route finding and maintaining route marking since 2003
  • Received Federal 501 c 3 and Oregon non-profit incorporation status
  • Negotiated permission agreements for the critical trail links across lands of the Corvallis Watershed, Oregon State University, College of Forestry, Starker Forests, Inc., the Farmer family, and Hitselberger Ranch LLC.
  • The complete Trail route was submitted to the Siuslaw National Forest in June 2010
  • C2C Volunteers put in over 700 hours trail maintenance on existing Siuslaw National Forest trails plus hundreds of hours on trails in other national forests in Oregon
  • The Siuslaw National Forest committed to begin the environmental assessment (EA) for the trail in FY2011 and accept the route as part of their trail system (they eventually reversed these commitments and required a special use permit)
  • Submitted special use permit application to the Siuslaw National Forest in January, 2014, for permission to build, maintain, and manage the eastern half of the trail from Corvallis to Big Elk Campground
  • Signed the special use permit in July, 2015, completed trail building in June, 2016, and opened the trail in 2017 with signs and maps (with hopes for a broader permit for the rest of the trail in a few years)
