Nice spot to find some local flavor. Not recommended for food, since it is spendy for the low quality, if they will serve you (once it seemed like too much effort so they declined). But, the real winner is a classic shuffle board to sip a beer or cider with.

Parks & Nature
Trail is located within the Cascade Head Scenic-Research Area, north of the Highway 101 and 18 junction 0.5 miles. The south trailhead is located at the corner of Highway 101 and Three Rocks Road. This trail runs north to south within the Cascade Head Scenic Research Area. This Sitka Spruce-Western Hemlock rainforest has been studied by foresters since 1934. This trail is less crowded than the other two popular trails in the area – it is entirely inland and has no viewpoints. Mid-way on the trail near the headwaters of Calkins Creek there remains a grove of six-foot diameter Sitka spruce. Trail has a forested backdrop with large Sitka spruce, Western hemlock, Douglas fir and Red alder.

Off of Hwy 101, South of Lincoln City, flanked by ferns, alder trees and vine maple, Drift Creek Trail winds through the rain-drenched Siuslaw National Forest. The Drift Creek Trail is amazing until you arrive at something even better and bigger that will take your breath away: a 240-foot long cable suspension bridge! Anchored by cables and ties that are cemented into opposing bluffs, the bridge holds over a hundred fifty thousand pounds, so it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. While the bridge does offer a bit of a bounce, the thirty-inch wide tread is perfectly safe and the bird’s-eye view will leave you spellbound. As does Drift Creek Falls, a 75-foot freefall, whopper of a waterfall!

This is further north, en route back to Portland via a scenic route. Yet, this is one our favorite family friendly tourist stops. I’m not exaggerating to say that we’ve been there a dozen times. It’s also a great place to take an easy hike along the Wilson River.

We know it is far away, but we have lots of guests traveling the Oregon Coast! If you are going through the redwoods and have the time to stop off, this is about 10 minutes off of 101 and well worth the stop in the redwoods. Take a deep breath and enjoy the splendor!
