Roads End State Recreation Site, or as it is often referred to as Roads End Beach, is the northernmost stretch of beaches within the Lincoln City limits. Those uninterrupted flat sandy beaches extend over 7 miles north from Siletz Bay to Roads End Point.
Roads End State Recreation Site is an extremely popular day-use area and despite a large parking area, it can fill up quickly on weekends. From this location, you can access the beach hiking trails.
The short trail leads to the broad sandy beach at the mouth of Logan Creek. Hiking 1.2 miles north to End Road Point provides access to marine life in tidal pools between lava islands. During low tides, you even can find Secret Beach and Cove. However, be aware incoming tides can leave you stranded if staying there too long.
If you want to shorten your hike to the northernmost edge to 0.6 miles, use another public access to the beach. Logan Road Wayside on Logan Road between 72nd and 73rd Streets has a few parking lots.
The beach is popular for a range of outdoor activities including beachcombing, kiteboarding, jogging, fat biking, picnicking, and nature viewing.
Roads End State Recreation Site is part of the Cascade Head Marine Reserve and Marine Protected Areas. To find out more check Oregon Marine Reserves Harvest Restrictions.
Roads End Beach can be a great place to fill your collection with beautiful rocks and other beach treasures. The most common and sought-after mineral here is agate. You can find agates ranging from clear to yellow and even orange. Jaspers are common here too, including green, red and yellow ones. You can also find other treasures such as petrified wood, sea glass, interestingly shaped rocks, and more!
Lincoln City holds an annual Finders Keepers event. Hand-crafted glass floats are put along the 7.5-mile stretch of Lincoln City public beach including Roads End Beach. Floats are placed from mid-October to Memorial day and finding one of those can be a highlight of any beach outing.
Restrooms and picnic tables are available to visitors. Dogs are allowed at the day-use area and on the beach, but please make sure to clean after your pet.

Attention Fellow Beachgoers
Unfortunately, our beautiful Pacific North West beaches are stained with trash, especially plastic. We, at Oregon Discovery, as well as other unaffiliated groups of nature lovers made a commitment to do our part in keeping our beaches clean, but we need your help too!
Every time you go out to enjoy nature at your favorite spot, please bring a garbage bag or two and help us pick up garbage. Even picking up a little bit here and there will make a huge difference long term.
Please, help us save our beautiful nature for the generations to come!
