Overview

Oregon is renowned not only for the natural beauty of its coastline but also for its enlightened tradition of publicly owned and protected beaches. The Oregon Coastal Access Guide is essential for anyone exploring the nearly four hundred miles of coastline that lie between the Columbia River and the California border.

Now revised and updated, the Access Guide offers a north-to-south tour of Oregon's Pacific edge, with extensive mile-by-mile coverage of scenic U.S. Highway 101. It provides a convenient and reliable reference on where to go, how to get there, and what to expect, including: thorough descriptions of beaches, parks, forests, campgrounds, boat ramps, picnic areas, and hiking and equestrian trials, details on and directions to natural areas, from estuaries and lakes to dunes and headlands, up-to-date information on outdoor recreation, including angling, crabbing, clamming, boating, whale watching, golfing, photography, surfing, and cycling, features on a range of topics, including history, weather, tides, marine and coastal wildlife, cultural attractions, and historic coastal bridges, listings of resources to help travelers plan and enjoy their trips. Kenn Oberrecht's detailed knowledge of the Oregon coast-he has driven thousands of miles on coastal roads and hiked hundreds of miles on beaches and trails-informs every page of this indispensable guide.
