Surf & Hike the Oregon Coast

Host to over 240 State Parks, many of which line the Pacific Ocean, the Northwest Oregon Coast is a dramatic landscape of cliffs, beaches, sand dunes, rainforest, and mountains. On this trip we’ll be staying at a rustic camp while we explore the forests and beaches around the coast. We’ll hike around six miles most days with daypacks, and we will spend a couple of days learning to surf on the Pacific coast. There’s also canoeing and swimming at the lake at our camp. Come see why the Oregon Coast is a premiere destination for outdoor enthusiasts!
