Great place to stretch your legs before heading to the coast line of Oregon. This is cliff side viewing of the beach with Cannon Beach in the distance. There is 9 miles of Coastline. There are some hiking opportunities, tide pooling and watching for wildlife....More

This is a beautiful rain forested state park right on the Oregon coast. The ferns and trees are amazingly beautiful.

My wife and I travelled the northern Oregon coast from Heceta Head Light to Astoria — about 150 miles spread over 3 days. When we travel, as in this case, we generally visit natural scenic sights. We visited a number of coastal Oregon state parks...More

All I can say is WOW!!! So, to get to the park from the heart of downtown is super easy by car. Way easier than I thought, GPS on my phone was spot on. As we started to approach the entrance, an approaching vehicle flagged...More

The first part of our hike was all uphill on a gravel rock road. My wife was winded (we're in our early 60's). It was, however, great exercise. Once we reached the top of the hill, we meandered through all sorts of grasses, bushes and...More
