Walk along the beach past unique homes to a place where seals like to sun. The three mile sand spit at the mouth of the Siletz River has a remote feel even though it's within easy reach of some of Oregon's most exclusive beachfront homes. Wildlife, especially harbor seals and shorebirds, are often seen in the Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge just inside the spit.

I'm sure the resort is beautiful and has amazing views, but this hike is basically walking on the beach...

If you start at the Salishan Spa parking lot, it's 6 miles to go out and back. Nice hike. You start along the golf course, going through the woods, then a long walk through a hilly residential neighborhood to the end of the road, then on to the beach to where the seals are.

I love the Salishan Resort and would recommend this getaway and this hike to anyone. Very cool to have the ocean on one side and he bay on the other.
