Picture Night - Oregon Coast Trail

Oregon Coast Trail
Considered by many as the "crown jewel" of Oregon's long-distance trails, the Oregon Coast Trail (OCT) stretches from the Columbia River to the California border, almost 400 miles later.  About half the trail is located on Oregon's public beaches, while other segments carry hikers over headlands & capes, as well as through some 25 coastal communities.  Although officially declared as a trail over 40 years ago by the OR Parks & Recreation Dept. (OPRD), the OCT remains incomplete because some portions of the trail require hikers to walk along the shoulder of US Highway 101.
In 2017, OR lawmakers adopted legislation requiring that OPRD complete a plan needed to address these gaps.

Connie Soper has recently issued a 2nd ed. of her book, Exploring the Oregon Coast Trail, & will present highlights from the book.  Ann Hanus & Dan Hilburn will also discuss legislative & advocacy efforts underway since passage of the legislation in 2017.
