Vacation isn’t just about lazing around, even in clean, comfortable Oregon beach vacation rentals. Lincoln City certainly has lots of reasons to just sit back and relax. Take in the spectacular ocean views — maybe from the deck of great beach condo rentals. Lincoln City, Oregon has great whale watching also.
Or go to a state park and relax in nature. Sample the local restaurants near your beach home rentals and choose a favorite. Stroll along the beach and maybe find a Finders Keepers glass float. Take advantage of the concerts, performances, and other things to do in Lincoln City, Oregon.
But sometimes you may just have a need to be more active. Sometimes you just need to move. You need to keep up the exercise routine, not because it’s a job, but because it’s part of who you are. You need to keep active to keep the mind clear and the body healthy.
Well, Oregon beach house rentals near Lincoln City can provide for you, too!
Whether your preference is for a good hike, or even a run along a trail, you’ll find something that meets your needs.
And the sheer beauty of the nature all around Lincoln City, Oregon will assure you of a great experience while running.
One of the great running trails is at the north edge of town. It is an out-and-back trail, and the turn-back point provides some spectacular views. This trail begins on the path to The Knoll. The Knoll is a well-known local spot to get great views of the ocean and of Lincoln City, itself. But rather than stay at The Knoll, runners continue along a path that goes through a meadow, and up the other side, to an outcropping known as God’s Thumb. The trail has some ups and downs, but nothing a seasoned runner can’t handle, and it is a total of 3.3 miles.
For those looking for a more strenuous day of running and vigorous hiking, Hart’s Cove Trail will bring the challenge. A little way north of town, Hart’s Cove begins just 17 feet above sea level, but over its nearly 14 miles out-and-back you will climb more than 2,800 feet. Naturally, that means you also will descend that same amount, but going down a steep grade can sometimes be more difficult than going up! But this trail provides everything people come to the Pacific Northwest to see lush forest, rock formations, a waterfall, spectacular views, and great running temperatures.
Of course, there are other opportunities for running — or just walking vigorously — that don’t include mud and rocks. Just a jog through the peaceful neighborhood where you find Oregon beach vacation rentals in Lincoln City, Oregon can be enough. Or a vigorous stroll along our seven miles of sandy beach can get the heart rate up.
Whatever your exercise needs, you’ll find a way to scratch that itch here. Book your stay at Lincoln City, Oregon lodging today!
