Leadbetter State Park hike

Been too busy with the new Oregon Fly Fishing blog, but now that we’re in a groove, I’m back to Upstream in Oregon. Sorry for the interruption.

A couple weeks back we hiked Leadbetter Point (*see previous bald eagle photo set). It is the first hike in the Bill Sullivan Oregon Coast book, though the hike is just over the border in Washington State.

The hike was a four mile loop to a Willapa Bay viewpoint and back across the point to the Pacific. Sullivan mentioned that from October to May, hikers might want to wear big rubber boots. And though we didn’t, you probably should listen to him. The following video is from the hike, and the two mile slog through knee-deep water in Mid-February:

    Looks like the spit and beach at Cape Meyers past Tillamook.

    Beautiful spot.
