Elk and the Oregon Coast Trail

image1-smallThis time of year, the last of Summer’s beautiful weather begins to turn toward Fall.  As Summer winds down, the Elk….aka The Elusive Wapati…. begin to descend from the Coast Range in search of food.  We are the lucky beneficiaries of this annual migration, where Elk can be seen in our yard, along the roads and down the many trails that surround the Inn.

In that the Arch Cape Inn nestles along the Oregon Coast Trail, we often recommend that our guests take advantage of of both of these unique opportunities…to hike along the OCT and to likely see the Elk.  Enjoy an especially stunning, but difficult hike from Arch Cape to Short Sands.  This hike can be modified for all interest levels and abilities.
