Pacific Coast Scenic Byway, Oregon Coast

346.6 miles: 7 hours, 35 minutes

Spanning the entire Oregon coastline, jagged cliffs, lighthouses, pine forests, Victorian homes and charming cities line the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway. Natural beauty dominates your view along the shore with steep cliffs and rocky outcroppings often visible as US 101 skirts near the ocean.


Marvel at breathtaking Pacific Ocean waves as they crash against the beach and rocks then venture out to sea in artistic formations along Oregon's US 101. Towering sand dunes edge up to the byway at Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Don’t blink as you cross over D River in Lincoln City or you might miss the shortest river in the world, at 120 feet-long.
