The Oregon Sand Dune Hike That Leads To The Most Magnificent View On The Coast

The Oregon Coast offers up hundreds of magnificent views, and we’ll just never tire of them. If you’re in the northern part of the coast, you’ll definitely want to take the Three Capes Scenic Route, a 40-mile-long road that has three stunning capes and plenty of natural beauty. Along the way, make sure to stop at Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area, where you can take this sand dune hike:

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

If you’re climbing and exploring the bluffs around the park, make sure to stay behind the fenced areas – the sandstone edges can crumble, and seven people have died from falls since 2009.

If you’re looking for another great trail on the coast, check out this trail through an ancient forest, and if you love nature photography, you might want to think about joining our Oregon Nature Lovers Group on Facebook. You can share your own beautiful photos of Oregon, and enjoy those from other talented photographers around the state!
