Working with a strong group of local activists, Oregon Shores successfully prevented development from blocking unused County Road 804, which remained a public right-if-way, and was transformed into Yachats’ splendid, shore-hugging 804 Trail. There was a coda two decades later. Oregon Shores advocated that properties developed illegally on another stretch of this right-of-way be granted lifetime tenure but then removed to allow extension of the trail. We didn’t succeed in the ultimate goal, but in a compromise did obtain several new shoreline access points for the public.
