Hiker-Biker Amenities Improvement Project
Oregon Parks Forever is raising funds to have eleven hiker-biker shelters in hiker/biker camps in state parks along the 362-mile long Oregon Coast. Eventually, we hope to expand this effort along Oregon’s more than 1,100 miles of Scenic Bikeways. These shelters provide hikers and bikers with a facility to lock up their gear and food, charge electronics and e-bikes, fill their water bottles, and perform minor repairs on their bikes, including inflating tires.
Along the Oregon Coast, hiker-biker shelters have been installed at six state parks: Fort Stevens, Devil’s Lake, Cape Blanco, Harris Beach, Cape Lookout, and Nehalem Bay. Funding for hiker-biker shelters at Honeyman, Sunset Bay, Beverly Beach has been secured and they are being fabricated. Our plans call for the installation of two more hiker-biker shelters at Beachside and Humbug State Parks. We are seeking funding for the remaining two pods to complete the eleven hiker-biker campsites along the Oregon Coast Bikeway and Oregon Coast Trail. Our original shelter was built at Champoeg State Heritage Area.
Here are some of the installed hiker-biker shelters:
