The Salmonberry Railroad, site of the proposed future Salmonberry Trail, is currently owned by the Port of Tillamook Bay and is closed to public use. The tunnels, trestles, and rails are hazardous and have not been maintained since the 2007 flood event. To find active trails in the area, check here.
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.
