Brian Booth State Park Trail Map Released

November 14, 2014
In December 2013, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department introduced Brian Booth State Park along Highway 101 on the Oregon coast. Brian, a founding Tonkon Torp partner who passed away in 2012, was also the first chairperson of the original Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission and a lifelong advocate for preserving Oregon’s natural beauty. The park named in his honor combines the former Ona Beach State Park and Beaver Creek State Park. A new park trail map has been recently released, outlining the 5-plus miles of trails within the park’s natural area. More than 200,000 visitors annually enjoy the natural beauty and abundant bird watching in the park.
