The Corvallis to Sea (C2C) Trail connects Corvallis to the Coast on existing low traffic roads, abandoned or gated logging road corridors, and newly constructed trails. The eastern half of the trail departs downtown Corvallis and travels over the shoulder of Marys Peak to Big Elk Campground in 30 miles. The western half of the trail begins at Big Elk Campground reaches the coast at Ona Beach in about 30 miles. The Corvallis-to-the-Sea Trail Partnership website is located at Please visit their website for the most up-to-date information, including regarding possible closures.

As a hiking trail, it is a singular 60 mile route. Several bike routes are possible. Bicycles are prohibited on certain portions of the hiking trail and so the primary C2C bike route bypasses these segments on adjacent low traffic roads. Follow the links below for more information about hiking or biking the C2C Trail, camping and lodging, and bus service.
