Point hidden at parking lot by municipal water treatment plant, but short walk leads to an easy to get to "beach" thick with driftwood--just happened to be what I was looking for. Saw a nice sunset (partial) from here & some decent sized waves breaking on the numerous rocks. Did not have time to do the trail to the end... More

To get to this park you need to park next to the waste water treatment plant, but don't let that stop you. There is a nice paved trail that goes back around the plant and takes you out to the point. My wife does not like heights (fear of slipping) so she did not go all the way to the... More

Once you ignore the water treatment plant, this headland is lovely. There are some great walks, but sometimes you have to ignore the "danger" signs. My wife and I are 71, so tend to be careful, but we enjoyed our visit.

The view from the point was absolutely breath taking. It is a little bit of a walk around the water treatment plant, but well worth it.

Don't miss this park if you are in Brookings. The entrance is behind the sewage treatment plant so it is not that easy to find. You park in front of the plant. The trail takes you way out on a rocky peninsula that extends out into the ocean. Views are fantastic in both directions.

Easy access and walk for great views. Good birding, in part because of the water treatment plant that others eschew.

It took locals to show us where this park was but that has an advantage. It was not crowded. This point is a short hike from around the corner of the sewage plant parking lot. You can either hike down to the beach or up to the chetco point. The view is stunning from the point. The day we went... More

We were within walking distance to this park when we stayed in Brookings. We went in the morning to check out the tide pools and then went back in the evenings to eat our dinner overlooking the ocean. Very peaceful and had the place to ourselves.
