Tillamook Estuaries Partnership

A National Estuary Project

Water Trails

Superior recreational opportunities exist in our five watersheds!  Approximately 200 miles of navigable water exists for every paddling skill-level from novice to advanced whitewater. A group of local citizens, the Tillamook County Water Trail Committee, has a shared vision since 2004 of developing a water trail system throughout Tillamook County. The Tillamook County Water Trail, a National Recreation Trail (as of 2012) is connected through signs, guidebooks/maps and access points providing a scenic and educational experience for recreational users.The Tillamook Estuaries Partnership (TEP) facilitates the water trail project for this community-driven effort.

Waterproof guidebooks are available at the TEP office or can be mailed by request by calling 503-322-2222. Each guidebook consists of photographs and maps that indicate paddling access points and amenities of the Nehalem Bay, Tillamook Bay, Netarts Bay and Nestucca & Sand Lake. You may also download a pdf version by clicking on the guidebook thumbnails below.
