Backpacking and Camping the Bayocean Peninsula near Cape Meares Oregon

Just got back from a quick and easy weekend adventure that most any family or group with minimal equipment can enjoy and wanted to share it.

First of all this is a roughly 7 mile total trip and basically completely flat terrain. There is plenty of parking, a hard packed service road on the Tillamook Bay side of the peninsula and a wide sandy beach on the ocean side of it. The peninsula is about a quarter mile wide and has trails that cross back and forth and is open to non-motorized traffic; i.e., foot, bike and equestrian. I am not aware of any fresh water sources on the peninsula that are even fit to filter from much less drink from otherwise. We do take the water we will need for the entire trip. Most of the peninsula is part of a local county park.

Great trip and I will add more info and photos when I can
