Masks have always been part of the allure of Haunted Taft. But, as Lincoln City’s popular walking ghost tour returns this weekend, Sasquatch and the skeletons won’t be the only ones covering their faces.

All tour guests will be required to wear masks as the spooky history stroll sets out for its Summer Solstice Tour “Ghosts and Legends of the Oregon Coast” this Saturday, June 20.

This spine-chilling walking tour of Historic Taft offers guests the chance to hear the tale of Whiskey Jack, learn about the mysterious Ghost Schooner of Siletz Bay, puzzle over an eerie local Bigfoot sighting and experience a surprise or two.

Participants are encouraged to stay close to their party during the tour and try to maintain a six foot distance from other parties. Guides will be equipped with voice-amplification devices so that guests can hear stories from a safe distance.

Lasting about one and a half hours, the tour covers just under a mile of walking on flat, wheelchair-accessible surface. The tour is conducted rain or (moon)shine, with ponchos available in case of rain.

Tickets must be purchased in advance, and each party should send just one member to check in for the entire group.

Tickets, $20 for adults or $10 for kids aged eight to 17, are available at The tour is not recommended for children under eight.
