Spring Break

Soaring hikes, hunting for glass floats and a festival celebrating the art of magic—Spring Break in Lincoln City is a week of adventure.

Magic, illusion and sleight of hand during the Festival of Illusions. A haven for running enthusiasts during the annual Half Marathon. Trails winding up into ancient and beautiful headlands with panoramic views of the Pacific and the coastline down to California. Something sparkling amongst the sand, driftwood and beach grass, treasure waiting to be discovered.

Hiking Trails

From massive headlands rising from the Pacific to forest groves and hikes to secret waterfalls, bring your hiking boots and your sense of adventure. Three miles north of Lincoln City, a gorgeous headland waits to be explored. Cascade Head offers out and back trails with breathtaking views of the Oregon coastline and the Salmon River Estuary.

A little sister headland to Cascade Head, the meadowed hill north of Lincoln City is affectionately known as “The Knoll.” While a moderately difficult half-mile uphill hike, those who reach the top can breathe in the spectacular views of the Pacific coastline. To reach the trailhead, turn north on NE Devils Lake Blvd from Highway 101. Follow the road past a gate until you reach a cul-de-sac. Park on the street and the trailhead to the Knoll is just beyond the road and takes you through fields and forests.

Glass Floats

During Spring Break, our Float Fairies take to the shores and hide extra floats every day, rain or shine. Enjoy the hunt and remember to share the love with one float per household per year.

Festival of Illusions

During March, Lincoln City comes alive with magic and intrigue, during the Festival of Illusions at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Performances will feature different magicians or illusionists.
