Hiking trails are abundant in Clatsop County, but those avenues through nature don't take care of themselves. That is where groups like Trailkeepers of Oregon come in and put their volunteers to work making sure trails, like the ones winding their way through Ecola State Park, are in good shape for locals and the throngs of tourists about to visit the Oregon Coast. Volunteers spent time this week clearing debris and improving the condition of part of the Oregon Coast Trail near Cannon Beach.
