The ride loops around Cape Meares and Netarts Bay to Cape Lookout, then back to Tillamook. It’s scenic from the very ?rst mile, and the traf?c is manageable. Best of all, Cape Lookout State Park welcomes you with 40 ?rst-come, ?rst-served hiker-biker campsites—a rarity on the car-oriented coast. This was once a vast wetland, where five rivers met to form an estuary. Dikes and drainage tiles have turned it into world-class dairy land. This has produced some yummy cheese but has also badly degraded the water quality of Tillamook Bay and created major flood hazards.
