Biking the Western Half of C2C

(Big Elk Campground to the Coast)

Biking the western half of the C2C

The western half of the Corvallis to the Sea (C2C) hiking trail travels between Big Elk Campground and Ona Beach. Some segments of the trail are reserved for hikers only. The primary bicycle route recommended by the (C2C) Trail Partnership follows these segments as closely as possible on adjacent low traffic roads. Several variations from the primary C2C bicycle route are possible, and final destinations can include Newport and Waldport.
