50 Years In The Making, The Corvallis-To-The-Sea-Trail Just Opened - And It's An Epic Oregon Adventure

I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
The wait is over. After a half century of planning, The Corvallis-To-The-Sea-Trail just opened! The trail links the Willamette Valley and the Pacific Ocean, finally making this stretch of the Oregon Coast accessible to outdoor enthusiasts. The Corvallis-to-the-Sea Trail is an opportunity to enjoy the Oregon Coast Range in a wholly new way: its old-growth forests and coastal foliage, abundant wildlife, and stunning shorelines. This 62-mile trail is an epic Oregon adventure that most certainly needs to be added to your bucket list.
Whether you hike all 62 miles, or simply set out for 60 minutes, the Corvallis-To-The-Sea-Trail is an only-in-Oregon experience that belongs on your bucket list. A few things to note: if you plan on tackling the entire trail at once, plan for a five-to-six-day trip if you’re hiking, and two or three days if you’re biking. Plan to bring plenty of water and provisions, and also fill out a trail permit. If you’re biking, please note that some sections of the trail are still awaiting bicycle approval from the Forest Service. Learn more and plan your adventure at the official C2C Trail website.
For another epic, bucket-list-level excursion, consider jumping on the American Discovery Trail, a 6,800 mile, coast-to-coast adventure across the country!
