BULLARDS BEACH STATE PARK - Leashes

Info: Outdoor enthusiasts rate this locale two paws up. Situated beside the banks of the lovely Coquille River and the shoreline of the Pacific, Bullards Beach is a picturesque tableau where the river meets the sea. You and your furball will discover plenty of scenery and funnery in the 120+ acres of beach, dune and forest terrain. Fishy tales can come true if you try your luck in the ocean or river. Crabbing and clamming are also popular pastimes during low tides. BYOB (bring your own biscuits), find a secluded spot and dine with your canine while cool ocean breezes blow your cares away. Hikers, you and the dawgus can leave your prints in the sand as you travel on the trail to the Coquille River Lighthouse. An historic landmark, it was built in 1896, decommissioned in 1936, restored in 1976 and relit in 1991. So when you're looking for a day with a little bit of this and a little bit of that, set your sights on this pretty little spot. FYI: In December and from March through May, migrating whales can often be seen from Face Rock Wayside. The best orca ogling is in the early morning hours. For more information: (541) 347-2209.

Directions: From Bandon, travel north on Highway 101 for 2 miles to park entrance.

Twin Harbors State Park - leashes

Info: More than 17,000' of oceanfront tidelands have been landscaped by nature to create a 317-acre park unlike any you've seen. Tall dune grasses gracefully dance and sway, caught by the ocean breeze and the wind-sculpted trees look like works of art in this magical setting. Your canine connoisseur will give this beauty two paws up. The thick woodlands of this pristine area are home to an array of wildlife including raccoon, possum, deer and beaver. Lush plants are made even more dramatic by gold and pink flowers, which dot the banks of the boggy marsh. For a chunk of solitude and quietude in a bonafido au naturale milieu, you'll want to highlight this park on your travel itinerary. For more information: (360) 268-9717.

Directions: From Aberdeen, travel west on Highway 105 about 20 miles to the signed entrance.
