It only took half a year, but I created an Oregon Coast Trail journal. It’s a combination of blogs I posted while I was hiking and other information/recollections from the month-long journey. It’s very long because there are a lot of photos and it was a month of my life, so lots of memories.
I continue to have zero regrets about the decision to skip the Continental Divide Trail and head farther west to the OCT. It was fantastic. If anyone is considering a hike on the OCT, check out Oregon Coast Trail Advice and learn from my mistakes. I made several, but the trail itself was not one of them.
