Overview

Siltcoos is located about seven miles south of Florence, within the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. This unique facility is an off-road enthusiast’s dream. Designated routes crisscross various dunes and forests within the recreation area. Visitors also enjoy relaxing on the beach and playing in the surf.

Recreation

Off-road vehicle riding is the ultimate attraction at Siltcoos. Stagecoach Hiking Trailhead provides access to several non-motorized trails, including the accessible Lagoon Trail and the longer Waxmyrtle Trail, which meanders through the coastal shore pine forests and along the Siltcoos River to the beach.
