We are again going to Cape Lookout State Park for Labor Day! Cape Lookout has a really fantastic hiker/biker site, just a few yards from the ocean. There is lots to explore along the beach, and a hiking trail that goes up to Cape Lookout itself. We will ride out Saturday, August 30th, spend Sunday as a rest day at camp, and ride back Monday, September 1st.
Cycle Wild is leading a group via Nestucca River Road. This is an advanced trip–one-way mileage is 85 miles with 5000′ of elevation gain. But in return, you get a beautiful route that runs along the Nestucca River, with almost no cars for nearly 50 miles! Register for this trip here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cape-lookout-labor-day-camping-via-nestucca-tickets-12621149197
The hiker/biker site has potable water and a nearby port-a-potty, and the nearby regular camping loop has hot showers and flush toilets. Camping is $5/person, payable upon arrival. Firewood is also for sale–bring a few dollars cash to pitch in for a group fire.
Highway 6: Folks are welcome to join us at Cape Lookout’s hiker/biker campsite by riding out Highway 6. We will provide you with a route, but there is no leader for the Highway 6 route, and all riders taking this route are responsible for themselves. This is still an intermediate route, with one-way mileage of 70 miles with 2800′ of elevation gain. Another option folks could try is taking the Tillamook Wave bus out to Tillamook, and riding the last 12 miles to camp. Please note: the Wave does not run on Labor Day, so you will still have to ride your bike home.
If you will be joining us at camp via Hwy 6 or the Wave, please do not use Eventbrite to register. This is only for people riding the Nestucca River route.
A final note: Cycle Wild discourages the use of personal automobiles for all our trips. This is especially true since we will be staying in a hiker/biker site, and we should respect that campsite’s intended use for people arriving by bike or foot. Please help us respect this use and our purpose by riding/taking public transit for this and all our trips.
