Hiker-Biker Amenities Improvement Project
The Foundation is raising funds to add hiker-biker shelters in hiker/biker camps in State Parks. We are starting with the 362 mile long Oregon Coast, and hope to eventually expand this effort along Oregon’s more than 1,100 miles of Scenic Bikeways.
Along the Oregon Coast, we have installed hiker-biker shelters at Fort Stevens, Devil’s Lake, Cape Blanco, Harris Beach, Cape Lookout and Nehalem Bay State Parks. We have received funding for three more hike-bike pods to be installed, and are seeking funding for the remaining two pods to complete the hiker-biker campsites along the Oregon Coast Bikeway and Oregon Coast Trail. Our plans call for the installation of five more hiker-biker shelters at Beverly Beach, Beachside, Honeyman, Sunset Bay and Humbug State Parks. Our original shelter was built at Champoeg State Heritage Area.
These shelters provide hikers and bikers with a facility to lock up their gear and food, charge electronics devices such as cell phones, fill their water bottles, and perform minor repairs on their bikes including inflating tires.
Here are some of the installed hiker-biker shelters:
