If you are into nature this place if for you. Beautiful coastline, tide pools and hiking trails. Great visitor center for information. I recommend the West Shelter accessed by a trail from top of the mountain where you will be rewarded by spectacular views.

Beautiful area, my favorite in all of Oregon. Tidal pools are amazing. If the tide is in, watching the waves come in through the blow holes is very cool. Trails allow for relatively easy walking. Keep your dog on a leash or leave them someplace safe. It would be easy for them to get into trouble if you are near... More

Hike if you can, explore the tidepools at low tide, or just drive to the top and enjoy miles of views of the spectacular Oregon coast. Keep your eyes open for seals, sea lions, and whales!

While I was visiting Oregon, a friend strongly recommended that I stop here, and I am glad she did. The short hikes I took were interesting, and I'd love to come back and spend more time.

So many things to see and do. I loved the rocks by the ocean the best. Up on top of the mountain you can see forever and it is beautiful. You can spend a day or an hour and love everything you see.

This place is just fantastic. We loved the view at the West Shelter and the Spouting Holes were awe inspiring. I can't say enough about the whole area. Don't miss it.

Man - we spent 5 hours there enjoying a 1 mile stretch of coast, and could have spent more there, and cannot wait to go back. There is sooo much to do there. Devil's Church, Cooks Chasm, Thor's Well, and The campground. Don't forget that you can also go to the top of the mountain and literally see the ends... More

This iconic spot offers stunning views of the Oregon Coast. You can enjoy sitting in the sun on a bench or taking the short walk down to the stone hut built in the 1930s by the Conservation Corps. Your walk back to the parking lot takes you through a lovely coastal forest with ferns, old trees, Oregon grape and huckleberry.

Be sure to drive or hike to the top for a wonderful view of the coastline. Not suitable for those with mobility issues, due to a very short walk on an uneven surface.
