Peaceful, scenic, coastal park to run, walk or mountain bike

Located just west of Tillamook on the way to Cape Meares is an expansive forested park that juts out into Tillamook Bay. The main "trail" is an old unpaved narrow road called Bayocean Dike Road that stretches 4 miles down to the point. It's perfect for a long run, leisurely hike or mountain biking. There are multiple trails that branch off of Bayocean and head into the forest. If your goal is to chill and take in the sights, there are many places along the trail that look out to the water where you can set up a spot on the beach. Along the trail, you'll get panoramic views of the bay and the coastal range.

We took our dogs out to get some exercise during low tide and it was great; we went when there was very little traffic and we had the place to ourselves

Out there getting wind blown, shaking out the fear and tripping around trails.
