Taft and Siletz Bay, End of Lincoln City
Lincoln City, Oregon Coast Virtual Tour, Inland 101, Neskowin, Corridor of Mystery
Here's a view of the bay, including the Salishan Spit in the distance, from the vantage point of one of the hotels along the bay.
Along your way out of town, heading south, there are some other hidden tidbits. Josephine Young Park is one seriously unknown park, tucked away behind a neighborhood that’s tucked away behind Highway 101.
Just south of the bridge after Siletz Bay Park, there’s a street on the west side of the highway called Keys Place. Take that and look for the signs leading to the park. This little wayside overlooks mostly mudflats of the Siletz Bay, but parts of it are traversable. There’s some dunes along the shore as well, plus picnic spots for the hungry.
As you look east on the highway heading south, you'll see Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge. You can’t miss the striking mountains and weird, barren trees near the highway. This is the wildlife refuge: home to many different kinds of seasonal birds.
