Fort to Sea Trail

The Fort to Sea Trail is a beautiful 6.5 mile trail starting at Fort Clatsop to the Pacific Ocean.  The weather was absolutely perfect today for a hike at 70 degrees and a cool breeze.  The trail includes four different ecosystems (1) thick forest, (2) wetlands, (3) meadow/pasture, and (4) ocean.  We started out at 11 a.m. this morning with Ranger Susan and a large group of fellow hikers. 

We decided to head out ahead of the group.  The following pictures tell the story better than I can:

(1) The Forest (left)

(2) The Wetlands (mucho mosquitos) (right)

(3) Tunnel under Highway 101 (left)

(4) A sign instructed us to walk quietly around the cattle...this was dicey (right)

(5) Path through the pasture (left)
(6) The Sea!

  1. Wow!! That's quite impressive. The wya you have described it showing the pictures does create a beautiful picture in the mind about the path from the Fort to the Sea. It is not much that I know about this place but after knowing about it I would like to know more about it.
