Every year I have each of the kids come up with a summer outdoor goal. Last year my daughter chose the lofty goal of hiking the Oregon Coast Trail, a 382 mile trail that stretches the entire coast of Oregon. She loves beaches and the ocean water an Oregon provides some of the best coastal hiking for a nine year old. We put it on the calendar last year, but after backpacking over 900 miles (parts of PCT, PNT and all over southern Utah) we were pretty wiped out. Instead, we added it to our 2017 list and hope to complete sections at a time.
