We will begin our morning with a beautiful and scenic drive through the Coastal Mountains before reaching the coastline. Our first stop takes us to a local hidden gem, Shortsands Beach, where we will walk through an old growth forest passing enormous trees several thousand years old. We will make our way down to the beach, where we will be met with a world class ocean view of towering cliffs, old growth logjams, stream estuaries and surfers catching waves. From here we will take a leisurely seaside stroll along the beach to a vibrant waterfall that descends into tidepools, where we will look for starfish, anemones, shore crabs, barnacles and other marine life. Along the way we may discuss native plants, animals, landscape topography and ecosystem functions in a natural and fluid manner. After enjoying Shortsands Beach, we will head a few minutes north to Cannon Beach and the famous Haystack Rock where guests will be free to roam this picturesque town and choose their own adventure. Cannon Beach is rich with local shops, restaurants and most importantly, saltwater taffy! Our day will conclude with a return journey through the Coastal Mountains to Portland, where we will say our goodbyes. This trip is designed for guests of all ages. Guests should bring comfortable walking shoes, however you may choose to do less walking along the beach if you prefer!
As a lifelong local, I’ve spent my days exploring the natural world and advancing my skills in the backcountry. I took this passion to new heights by studying Earth and Environmental Science at WSUV, and obtaining medical certifications in Wilderness First Response. I founded Stök Outfitters with the goal of providing a safe, fun and informative bridge between city life and the great outdoors for members of all socioeconomic backgrounds and physical abilities, with emphasis on underrepresented groups. I believe that mankind’s love for nature transcends all social and political biases, and that we are strengthened through our diversity. I welcome all those who seek to draw closer to our wildlands and wish to enrich their lives through adventure and exploration. Let’s put the Stök in your Northwest adventure!
