Don't pass up pulling over and checking out all the coastal view points along the 101 in Samuel H. Boardman State Park. Many have hiking trails down to the beach. Bring water and toilet paper because there are few restroom facilities. There are no convenience stores or gas stations along the 101 from Brookings to Gold Beach, Oregon. There's nothing... More

The views are spectacular at every lookout point and from every beach. We live in Portland and love the north coast but the southern Oregon coast is even more scenic. Our favorite was Secret Beach but every beach in the park is unique and beautiful. Take a couple beach chairs and a picnic. Most of the trails to the beach... More

This is a long stretch of beach with lots of hiking, biking trails. Some beaches and sites are only accessible by hiking but there are lots of spots that you can park next to the beaches.

We had been planning to visit here for months after reading an article by Huff Post ages ago. Went here today and were very dissapointed! It is better to walk the entire 27 mile trail because each stop over isnt as easy to view as it ought to be. Furthermore, lots of turn offs require a whole hike up and... More

Words do not do this stretch of Oregon coastline justice. Some points remind you of Ireland, some of Italy's Amalfi Coast and all are drop-dead gorgeous. There are hiking trails throughout this gem of a park that connect to the Oregon Coastal Trail. It took us an entire day to drive from the California border to Gold Beach because of... More

This Park along the Southern Oregon is in my personal and very humble opinion, and everyone has an opinion, whereas my opinion about this Park is undeniably indisputable... Hm Hhmm, this Park is Spectacular and the very reason why, I believe the Southern Coast rivals the Northern Coast. Of course that being said, you would have to agree if you... More

What a beautiful series of beautiful beaches, nice trails and spectacular vistas. We will be back. The rest areas are well maintained and landscaped with natural plants.

The ride was worth it. The south Oregon coast is what you think Oregon looks like. The only stop you could pass on would be the man made bridge.
