Some residents are probably tired of the tourist driving slow on this road but what a view. The river follows the road almost the whole way through. amazing little stops on the way. Go put your feet in the water. amazing.

The BIG STORM last Fall really did a number on the Highway 38 trees, but the loggers are doing their work and it's much better now. Lovely emerald colors for the entire trip. Don't miss Loon Lake!

From the off-ramp from I 5 to OR 38 to Reedsport can take from 2 to 3 hours (or more), depending on how often you stop to see the sights.

No, but there are several in the Eugene area along I-5, and the BW Salbasgeon Inn in Reedsport, at the coast end of 38.
