Trails

Map of all trails at Fort Clatsop

Once the Corps of Discovery built Fort Clatsop, they turned their attention to exploring the land nearby. Members of the Corps spent time exploring the area for purposes of hunting, salt making, and surveying/mapping. Some of their travels took them southwest to the area's beaches, including what are now Sunset Beach and Seaside.


Today the park maintains a trail network through many of these same areas with trails of different lengths and difficulty levels, and a variety of natural areas.

See below for descriptions and information about our individual trails, including the Fort to Sea, Kwis Kwis, South Slough, Netul, and Clay Pit Pond.

Although the trails are navigable in most weather, please note that they can be closed due to high wind, and rain can make the trail slick, muddy, or partially flooded. Visit our safety page for more information about how you can prepare for your day hike at the park.

Be sure as well to stop in at the visitor center to check in, pay your fees, and get a trail map before you hit the trails.
