Mile 176 is quite pretty, with a wide beach, wind-sculpted dunes, and few visitors.

I do hope ODOT finally does something about the fissures and erosion immediately west of 101, just north of the entrance to the Southview PUD housing, because if, during our winter rains, that section of 101 slides off, it will close this highway for many months while emergency repairs are undertaken.

Some quads recently crossed over Berry Creek from the south, not Forest Service and the Forest Service had a pickup truck north of Berry Creek during the past three months as well.
