(Tillamook, Oregon) – Some good news and bad news is on tap for the north Oregon coast, as a number of hiking trails are closed in Tillamook County but a pumpkin patch and haunted corn maze is coming to the area.

The Kilchis River Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze opens in October, right outside of Tillamook. Then near the end of the month, the corn maze goes haunted to scare up some Halloween fun.

All four weekends in October you can pick your pumpkin or specialty gourd, or try your luck at not getting lost in the largest corn maze on the Oregon coast. There’s also a hayride where you can get a short tour around the farm (masks are required).

Then on October 23 and 24, the corn maze becomes haunted. Various creeps and ghouls keep you on your toes and the blood pumping. Don’t be surprised to spot IT’s Pennywise among the creepsters.

Meanwhile, all of this is in the fresh air and built for social distancing. 9455 Kilchis River Rd. Tillamook, Oregon. (503) 815-3762.

Tillamook Coast and Trailkeepers of Oregon are reporting several trails in this area of the north coast are impassable or downright closed because of downed trees earlier this month.

Among them:

Cape Lookout State Park has closed most or all of its park trails because of trees blocking the pathways. Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) said this includes the Cape Trail. If you enter closed trails you could be cited.

At Cape Meares, most trails are closed and even the ones that are open are treacherous, according to the Trailkeepers of Oregon. In one area, a large tree is blocking the trail at a steep angle, and the only way over it is quite dangerous. Other sections are washed out making for extremely narrow footing. The group is warning to stay away from all trails here.

The trail from Oswald West State Park to Arch Cape and Cape Falcon is considered impassable, with significant blowdowns on Cape Falcon and Neahkahnie Mountain. The Shingle Mill Lane trailhead actually has a closed sign. The stretch of the Oregon Coast Trail to Short Sand Beach is not considered passable either.

Up at Cannon Beach, there is considerable tree blockage along the trails at Ecola State Park, including Tillamook Head, Indian Beach and Crescent Beach.
