There is no better way to see the dramatic colorful leaves changing on the trees than hiking one of the dozens of trails in Tillamook County this fall. Enjoy fall’s colorful kaleidoscope of changing colors on one of these great hiking trails: Cape Lookout Trail, Kings Mountain Trail, and the Tillamook State Forest Loop. They will all be draped in hues of red, yellow and gold this autumn. When the fishing boats begin to vanish from Buoy 10 near Astoria it must be fall, and time to head to Tillamook County and fish the Trask, Wilson, and Nehalem Rivers for Fall Chinook. Meander your way along the National Scenic Byway of Highway 101. The North Coast is dotted with cozy beach towns to explore, breathtaking Pacific Ocean panoramic views, and lighthouses to enjoy. The Wilson River Highway 6 affords a leisurely loop from Portland to Tillamook County, coasting through the rolling Coast Range resplendent in fall gold, reds, and greens. Fall is also one of the best times to go crabbing, boating, and horseback riding in the area. There is something hair-raising about the heavy fog and moaning wind on the North Coast in late October. Where better to pick your favorite pumpkin for carving than the live pumpkin patch at Kilchis River in Tillamook?
Come to Tillamook County for your fall chills and thrills!
