Situated roughly at the coastal mid-point of Oregon’s 363 miles of public beaches is the Super Bowl for canine play - 40 miles of tail-friendly beach in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. These mountains of sand extend inland for 2.5 miles and are the tallest dunes in North America. The star canine hike in this vast alien landscape is at the Tahkanitch Area where a five-mile loop crosses the open oblique dunes, explores the inter-dune forest and reaches the Pacific Ocean where you can enjoy an isolated beach for as far as your dog’s eye can see. For a quicker way to experience the dunesland consider the John Dellenback Dunes Trail south of Reedsport that deposits your dog amid towering sand piles and island of trees.
