Starting in Astoria and traveling south to Brookings, the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway provides views of amazing coastal scenery. The road winds by estuarine marshes, clings to seaside cliffs, passes through agricultural valleys, and brushes against wind-sculpted dunes. Charming small towns, museums, state parks, overlooks, historic bridges, and lighthouses ensure a delightful journey.
Getting to the Byway:
* Take US-26 northwest to Cannon Beach Junction. * Get on US-101 to enter the byway.
Navigating the Byway:
* Begin at the state line of Oregon and Washington just north of Astoria, OR. * Follow the Oregon Coast Highway, also known as Highway 101, south along the Oregon coast. * The byway ends at the state line of Oregon and California.
