Explore the Coastal Rainforest
The coastal rainforests of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington offer a diverse and lush landscape of towering trees, giant ferns, and abundant streams. You’ll get to explore some of the remaining ancient forests, as well as enjoy the sandy beaches, tidepools, and rocky bluffs looking out over the Pacific Ocean. Keep an eye out for elk, beaver, deer, eagles, great blue herons, and sandhill cranes. Come see why the Oregon Coast is a premiere destination for outdoor enthusiasts! You’ll stay at a camp-type facility, with beds, bathrooms, and a dining hall. Read the detailed trip description to learn more.
