Driving Directions

Drive I-5 South to Exit 278 for Donald and Aurora.

After exiting, turn right onto Ehlen Road, which becomes Yergen Road, and drive 3.6 miles.

At a crossroads, continue straight on McKay Road for 3.4 miles.

At the T-junction with Highway 219, turn right, and proceed 3.1 miles, crossing the Willamette River.

Turn left onto the Newberg/Dundee Bypass, and go 4.2 miles.

Bear right at the merge with Highway 99W, and drive another 3.2 miles.

Then turn left onto Highway 18 for Dayton and the Oregon Coast. Keep on Highway 18 for 52.1 miles.

Before Highway 101, there’s a junction where cars going north peel off to the right for Neskowin and Tillamook. Drive 0.7 more miles and merge with Highway 101 South.

Drive another 14.3 miles all the way through Lincoln City and past the turnoff for Salishan Lodge.

Turn right on Fishing Rock Street and keep straight for 0.1 miles before pulling into a fenced gravel parking area on the left just before the junction with Fogarty Avenue.

  • When leaving, if you want to travel north, because the highway is divided here, turn right onto Highway 101, and then use the next U-turn option at a turnaround.
