Oregon Coastal Access Guide: A Mile-by-Mile Guide to Scenic and Recreational Attractions, Second Edition (Oregon Sea Grant)
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. The most comprehensive and useful guide to the Oregon coast, 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 trails, • 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.
little bit of everything
By T. Poet - July 22, 2009
There is so much to do on the Oregon coast, especially along Hwy 101 that planning a trip is nearly impossible. After weeks of searching the web trying to decide which driving and stop options were doable in a 3 day trip and which my family and I wanted to do, I broke down and bought this book. This is a great guide to a everything. I really like the "must do" checks, and agreed with most of them. It is not a photo guide, it is not a hotel guide or a restaurant guide. It is a fairly concise description of just about everything (activities, bridges, beaches, lighthouses, scenic areas, museums...) to do with the Oregon coast. There is lots of information in here that I don't care about - golf courses for example. But, someone else might and it's easy enough to skip that to get to the lighthouses and bridges that I am interested in. Great for a family with different interests so we each got to read and see what we wanted to do in each area along the way.
Essential reading for the Oregon Coastal Traveler
By Wicked Photo Girl - November 5, 2009
Recently I vacationed along the Oregon coast and this book was priceless!! It gave me hints and tips that no other book detailed. This book details each rest-stop, outlet, inlet, viewpoint, beach access, bridge, museum, trail and park you could possibly imagine and more. It also served as an incredible resource - with it, I hit sites I would have otherwise missed. It was essential when I was trying to go over my photography and recount where all I had been. Before leaving (for vacation) I bought several books - but my favorites ended up being this one and The Photographer's Guide to the Oregon Coast: Where to Find Perfect Shots and How to Take Them (Middleton, Barbee) - I took them everywhere. I cannot praise this book enough!
