South of D River is the area known as Canyons, named after the little county beach park, just over the hill from the factory outlet stores on Hwy 101. The main break is left of the parking lot, about a 100-yard walk down the beach. Mostly good lefts but some rights. Like all Lincoln City spots, hollower at low tide, mushier at high.
Heavy current when it starts barreling making the padle-outs punishing or near impossible when cold. Better in small summer swells.
