WELCOME TO THE SALMONBERRY TRAIL
The Salmonberry Railroad is rich with promise. Reinvented as the Salmonberry Trail, it would be a world-class byway for non-motorized recreation in some of Oregon’s most exceptional and remote landscapes. Today, however, it is a dangerous place. Damage from a 2007 storm has not been repaired, and track, tunnels and trestles are not maintained. The Port of Tillamook Bay, which owns the route, has posted no-trespassing signs, and violators could be prosecuted.
In Oregon, we love adventure. It’s in our blood and part of our daily lives. Whether it be hiking, biking, horseback riding or paddling, visitors and residents alike enjoy exploring our state’s varied natural environment.
However, few recreation opportunities allow non-motorized users to safely connect from Portland to the Oregon coast, or to safely travel the Oregon Coast Highway. The only routes currently available span often-congested highways or unconnected trails and forest roads.
