There is a trail in Yachats, Oregon that was deeded to the citizens after a lengthy court proceeding.
It is an old ‘road’ from the late 1800’s and is the most pleasant and famous stroll in southern Lincoln County. Today it is no more than a dirt trail that hugs the Pacific coast only a few feet from the tidepools and thundering surf. It can be bicycled, walked, and has even hosted folks who are in wheelchairs.
Cove after cove lie in front of beautiful Oregon Coast properties. The trail has access points to all of them as well as offering some fairly productive fishing holes. Most folks start the walk at the parking area at the mouth of the Yachats river where there is free and public parking. The trail is accessed a few steps from your car and this experience will put you instantly face to face with the mighty Pacific. For ‘storm watchers’ it doesn’t get any better than this.
Stepping out of your Oregon Coast home can put you in another world.
The beaches are all but deserted in the winter and the occasional Pacific storm can offer you some real treasures. The Newport stretch of beaches are certainly famous for the agates that locals have been collecting for a hundred years.
But there is also the occasional Japanese glass fishing float, the vast array of seashells, and piles of driftwood. It can also be a dog lover’s paradise as man’s best friend romps after the seagulls.
Owning property on the Oregon coast is the ticket to nature’s wonderland. And this comes with a calm and unhurried lifestyle for those who see the beauty in the Pacific ocean and are happy to come face-to-face with mother nature.
