Autumn Hiking in Coastal Oregon

Weather permitting, there is still wonderful hiking to be had around the Oregon coast during autumn. Many of the most beautiful trails can be found near the central coast of the state, where Lincoln City rests at the 45th parallel of this scenic coastline bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Coast Range and Devil’s Lake to the east, Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge and the Siletz River to the south, and the Salmon River to the north. This leaves more opportunities for hiking than you could possible enjoy in a week, whether you prefer hiking near rivers, over mountains, around lakes, through hillsides, or along calm sandy beaches.

Biking along the Oregon Coast in fall

Oregon has many scenic bike-ways that cyclists rave about. The Oregon Coast Bike Route offers 370 miles of stunning roads that are ideal for cyclists, mostly along the US Highway 101. These routes range from scenic and relaxing to hilly and challenging, so there is something for everyone. The Oregon Department of Transportation Pedestrian and Bicycle Program offers a variety of maps and suggested routes so you can plan your ride based on your needs, skills and preferences.
