Miles of soft sand contoured by the wind and accented with ripple marks border the road from Florence to North Bend. Lie on it, walk through it, run over it, or slide down it; no matter how, take time to get to know this beautiful sea of sand known as the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Very little of this fascinating area can be viewed from US 101, so plan one or more short side trips. For cyclists, the most convenient dune accesses and viewpoints are at Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park and the Oregon Dunes Overlook. For a greater wilderness feel, try one of the short trails from Carter Lake, Tahkenitch, or Eel Creek Campgrounds. These trails are particularly attractive in May and June, when the native rhododendrons are in bloom.
