    Stairs, and an 80-foot wheelchair ramp, lead to the high viewing platform for a panoramic look at miles of dunes. A marked one-mile trail across the dunes leads through a shorepine grove to the beach.

    Oregon Dunes Overlook

    by sunnywong Updated Dec 14, 2003

    This Overlook provides the best view of the dunes. A park road leads .25 mile to a parking lot. Viewing from the overlook is one of the best ways to get a feel for this vast area.

    There are several parking areas on South Jetty Road that provide easy access to the beach. This is a popular place for duneschooter, off-road vehicles (ORV), ATV ( All-Terrain Vehicle) and windsurfers are fond of testing the winds off the south jetty.

    Favorite thing: My friend Paul had lived in Oregon for almost five years, yet this was his first visit to the Oregon Dunes. This part of the Oregon Coast didn't seem to have the same amount of tourist traffic as some of the better known communities further north.
