Worth finding: This welcome little oceanview trail within the City Limits of Brookings has little seen panoramas.

An enjoyable stop, if you meander past the less than scenic commercial sites, and ignore the less-than-prudent water treatment plant location on this scenic shore. Windy and... read more

An enjoyable stop, if you meander past the less than scenic commercial sites, and ignore the less-than-prudent water treatment plant location on this scenic shore. Windy and lovely views both northward and southward, with a picnic table to enjoy the panorama. Hardier trekkers can venture beyond the paved trail clear out to the historic headland. I couldn't locate the whale... More

Beautiful vistas on the hike to the point. Make sure to go off the beaten path as the trails lead you to stunning views of white foamed waves breaking on the rocks!!! Walk the beach to collect drift wood. Never want to leave. Mother nature at its best. Met an animated gentleman by the name of Robert who went to... More

I love taking visitors here it is a nice easy hike and the best view ever! It is also a great place to take pics. It has benches along the way to sit too.

This is a very small picnic area with a scenic view of the coastline below. There is a path down to the beach, but ATTEND YOUR CHILDREN because there is a very hazardous side trail that curious children are likely to want to explore--that part is marked as such. I would recommend the Lone Ranch Beach 4 miles north of... More

This short hike provides beautiful vistas of the shore line and ocean. Do not let the fact that it is behind a sewer treatment facility deter you. It is worth the trip with great vistas. My sister is afraid of heights though and found the hike out to the point too much for her.

This is one of Brookings best vistas. It's kind of hidden though. It's tucked back in a neighborhood, behind a sanitation plant. Those are it's only negatives though! Beautiful 180 degree views, picnic tables (I know, weird), Two trails, one leads to a hidden beach and the other is a little dangerous, but of course has the best views!

Chetco Point was a pleasant surprise. I had not heard of it but read an article in the newspaper about the whale remains. The helpful people at the Brookings Best Western gave me a map and told me how to get there. It was a nice point of land behind the wastewater treatment plant. Pretty views. But what I really...

A little smelly at start for sure! But -----. Great walk up short trail up huge rocks that give a great view of area. Good place for " non walkers" as it's very short ( maybe 15 min)

You have to walk by the sewage treatment plant on the way out to the point. There is also a pulp or paper mill close by. When we went, it was very stinky throughout the park. Harris beach is a bit prettier and didn't stink.

The parking lot is deceiving....it is right in front of the Waste Water Treatment Plant. The trailhead is directly to the right of the parking lot. We got more than we expected (as we hadn't read the local newspapers) when we came upon the deceased sperm whale washed up on the small beach. That's not something you see everyday, but... More
