The trail is an alternative to the popular Pacific Coast Trail
ASTORIA — Dissuaded by snow and dangerous river crossings, some backpackers ditched the popular Pacific Crest Trail in early 2017 and turned to the shorter, less well-known Oregon Coast Trail.
Though the trail was declared “hikeable” in 1988, hikers looking to walk it from end to end struggled to navigate gaps between segments and faced unclear signs, few legal camping options and, in general, a trail that wasn’t quite ready for them. Now the state is looking for solutions.
This month, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department held several open house presentations across the state to gather feedback from stakeholders about the trail.
