The beaches of Lincoln City are frequently punctuated by access points. There is one access point that is so far north they call it Roads End. Well, they call it Roads End State Recreation Site, to be entirely truthful.
I’m not sure about the particulars, but the area known as Roads End isn’t exactly part of Lincoln City. The houses in the area are something like 75% vacation rentals, which is a shame in my opinion, as it could be a thriving beach loving community otherwise.
If you are coming to the Oregon Coast to hunt agates, this beach is a must. The agate beds were out far into the spring this year, and come back in the winter every year. However, if you don’t like company you might consider a different beach. Those, 75% vacation rentals are filled with vacationers who go to the beach 100% of the time it seems.
If you walk north until you run into the massive headland, you might think you’ve reached… well… the end of the road. But if you are there during low tide, are nimble, and are a little adventurous, you are in luck. There is a path of sorts that will take you around to a hidden beach. By “hidden” I mean you can’t see it without going around. I do not mean “hidden” as in nobody knows about it. Everybody and their vacationers know about it, but it’s still fun to “find” it. Not to mention that it is an awesome beach, in a very literal sense of the word. The rock formations are pretty darned impressive, and make a great end to a hike.
Update : It seems during the summer enough sand builds up that you can easily walk around the headland. I saw a guy with a cane do it.
