When you are in the middle of these dunes you'll fee like you are in the Sahara Dessert! This is a short hike on the Oregon Coast that brings you into a massive area of sand dunes. When you climb up onto them you'll feel like you are in the middle of a massive dessert instead of actually still in Oregon. Take a fun tumble down them and walk along their windblown ridges to see the sand collapse under your feet. This is truly an amazing spot on the coast.

Dunes are impressive and beautiful. Trail not clearly marked in the dunes, and very tough climbing in the soft sand. Trail section in the woods was nice and easy.

Cool dunes.
