There are innumerable trails on this planet. Some are solely nature made. Some are nature made and maintained by people. Others are entirely made by people and maintained by people.
When people think of trails they might imagine a trodden path, dirt on the ground, brush and an overgrowth of bushes and trees.
Yep, that’s a trail, but a trail could be manicured. The ground might be fairly well cleared of brush. Foliage might be well trimmed back. The trail itself might be paved to allow for easier passage.
No matter how you get about, go out, experience something beautiful or amazing and enjoy the day.

Nehalem Bay State Park
My husband and I love RV camping, (Glamping, as my daughter puts it). If you are looking for lots of outdoor activities, Nehalem Bay State Park is the place to go. If you are driving down highway 101, along the Oregon coast, the park is about 2 miles south of Manzanita. It’s at 9500 Sandpiper…
