Neahkahnie Mountain View over Manzanita

Oregon Coast Trail Part 4 - Oswald West to Nehalem Bay

Friday 2/23/24:

One of my hiking goals is to completely hike the Oregon Coast Trail in segments.  Friday, I was able to complete another 12 mile section which included climbing over Neahkahnie Mountain.  I arranged transportation with Daniel at Pacific Taxi  Daniel met me at the Nehalem Bay State Park day use area at 7:30 AM.  Daniel took me to the Oswald West State Park parking area and dropped me off.  Necarney Creek

The suspension bridge over Necarney Creek was destroyed by some logs falling on it, so I rock hopped over and headed up the other side.  

Soon I was at the top of Neahkahnie Mountain, with a wonderful view!  I had a quick hot lunch with a view, and then headed down the hill, into Manzanita, and back to my car.  It was about 6 hours of hiking on a beautiful February day.

 Hot lunch with a view!
