Too many people think of
Oregon's scenic, recreation
filled coastline as the pot of
gold at the end of the Sunset
highway. While the Sunset
highway was hands down as
the easiest, speediest route to
the Clatsop county beaches,
there are nine other highways
to the coast that are worth
taking for their scenic value.
Nor do the northern beaches,
most readily accessible by the
superspeedy Sunset highway,
have the only recreational pots
of gold. Coos, Curry, Lincoln,
Lane and Tillamook beaches
may not be as populous as the
Clatsop county stretches, but all
are attractive and growing in

grandeur and the rifle-crack of
giant breakers over a rock
bound coast, the more southern
reaches of the coastline are

to the Wilson River highway
