    CLAMMING AT NETARTS BAY

    Nothing is more iconic of the Oregon Coast than a clamming trip – a bit of sand, salt, mud, and a great time spent with good friends.  Head out at low tide with an Adventure Coach to one of our favorite spots for clamming along the pristine waters of Netarts Bay. Heron and other shore birds abound along this beautiful bay where we will rake for steamer clams, then return to the Lodge for an afternoon clam bake with freshly baked bread and your choice of a beer, wine, or zero-proof refreshment. 3.5 hours

    CAPE LOOKOUT GUIDED HIKE

    Join your Adventure Coach for an epic North Coast hike. Choose from the Cape Trail that meanders through a rare and lush coastal old-growth forest and enormous ferns before emerging along the cliff’s edge to take in sweeping views of the seascape. At the tip of the cape you’ll be rewarded with a stunning 240’ view and a lovely spot to rest before the return home. Or explore the beautiful and less-traveled South Trail. The moderate 1 3/4 mile trail descends through a forest of Sitka spruce, a myriad of fern species, and salmon berries, then opens up to a secluded beach at the base of the towering cape where bald eagles soar above and agates lay hidden in the sand. 3.5 hours
