Drift Creek Falls Suspension Bridge - Oregon Coast Activity #8 of 101 Things to See and Do on the Oregon Coast

Drift Creek Falls Trail and suspension bridge. A fairly easy 3 mile round trip hike through lush forest. You'll find yourself on a 240 foot suspension bridge, 100 feet above Drift Creek. The suspension bridge is the longest suspension bridge in Oregon. Never fear, the bridge barely moves under you and can hold a massive amount of weight! After crossing the bridge, you can take a short hike down to the pool bed. Accessible all year, in the summer, you might even want to take a swim!

Directions from Sandlake Country Inn
  • Go south on #101 from Pacific City
  • Take #18 east from Lincoln City.
  • About 4 miles on #18 you will see a brown park sign for Drift Creek Falls. Turn Left onto the side road.
  • Drive 9 miles to the paved parking lot and well marked trailhead.

Please note: You’ll need a $5 Northwest Forest Pass, which can be purchased at http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/passespermits/index.shtml
