WPC: On The Way To The Beach

The path from parking to beach at Road's End.

The path from parking to beach at Road’s End.

There is always a long, steep pathway down to the beach, along the Oregon Coast near Lincoln City.

High cliffs march right up to the beach along much of this stretch of coast.

This path, at Road’s End, offers one of the easier access points in the area.  Everywhere there are flights of steps, pavement, and sometimes simply rocks to cross on the way from the parking areas to the sand and waves.

The ramp I used most often was long, and allowed one to drive a car or pickup onto the beach.  This is a favorite spot for weekend parties staged around roaring driftwood bonfires.

A beautifully made rock wall held back the cliff on one side, and all manner of wind-borne wildflowers grew from its cracks.

It is a steep climb, and requires determination to climb back up;

but oh, what wonderful views, along the way!

  3. Lovely walk to the beach. I really like the wildflowers scattered among the rocks.

  4. The wildflowers are so charming!

  5. Some of the most beautiful sunsets I can remember were at Road’s End.

    • I am addicted to these lingering golden Pacific sunsets, Rickii. Isn’t that a lovely spot? Have you hiked Cascade Head? Next trip, I hope to start at Road’s End and walk as far as I can towards it….. So magical…..
