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 nine state parks: Fort Stevens, Devil’s Lake, Cape Blanco, Harris Beach, Cape Lookout, Nehalem Bay, Honeyman, South Beach and Beverly Beach.  Our plans originally called for the installation of two more hiker-biker shelters at Beachside and Humbug State Parks but those projects have been put on hold due to other priorities at the State Parks.   Our original shelter was built at Champoeg State Heritage Area.

Here are some of the installed hiker-biker shelters:
