Thank You Tillamook Estuaries Partnership!
The Tillamook County Water Trail is a creation of the The Tillamook Estuaries Partnership’s. This community driven project is facilitated by the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership and is the direct result of many partnerships.

The TCWT consists of 250 miles of navigable waters for non-motorized enthusiasts, including five estuaries within the County. As a part of TEP’s Education Program, the TCWT offers superior water-based recreational opportunities for every skill level from novice to advanced whitewater. Maps for the Nehalem and Tillamook Estuaries have been completed, a third for the Nestucca Estuary is near completion and the fourth covering Netarts Bay is scheduled to begin thereafter.

The National Recreation Trails (NRT) program recognizes exemplary trails of local and regional significance. The program goal is to promote the use and care of existing trails and stimulate the development of new trails to create a national network of trails. This year, 54 new trails received a NRT designation, and Tillamook County Water Trail is included in this group as the only Oregon trail earning this honor in 2012. This community driven project is facilitated by the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership and is the direct result of many partnerships.
