Fort-Clatsop-to-the-Sea Trail

The Fort-Clatsop-to-the-Sea-Trail Project team came together with the objective to construct a trail from the Fort Clatsop National Memorial to Sunset Beach as part of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial to commemorate the historic trail Lewis and Clark took to reach the ocean from their shelter at Fort Clatsop. In order to complete the project, the Oregon Solutions Team needed to reach agreement on trail location, trail ownership, design, funding and construction, transportation solutions (as the trail crosses Hwy 101), and other economic and community implications.


  • The trail was completed in 2005 and has been open to the public since then.
