Part of the beach wagon road, these ruts worn into the rock are still evident and worth a visit.

A few years ago, during winter storms, sand was washed away and tree stumps from an ancient forest appeared. There are also some pieces of petrified wood imbedded in Hug Point.

My dad grew up and lived on Drift Creek, just south of what is now Lincoln City. He said when young much of the North-South travel on the Oregon Coast took place on the sandy beaches wherever possible.

Been here a number of times, but always knew when low tide was and walked around.

L.E., I might be mixing up a few stories-- but weren't those submerged tree stumps the result of the 1700 earthquake/ tsunami?

Cannot find them for now, but have pictures of this location with a team and wagon and another with an early auto ~

Those stumps from the 1700 earthquake were on the Washington coast. In the Long Beach area. I thought the Oregon Coast stumps were much older.
However, this article has an update that says probably not.
