I return time and again

I wish this place was closer to my home in Idaho. I have been returning to the southern Oregon Coast as often as possible ever since aspiring to professional photography in 1985.

Great park with lots of stops. Natural bridge is the best one. Better do your homework and prepare for selected places to stop and do short walks - park is not the best in identifying each stop or overlook.

This is just north of Brookings off Hwy. 101. We just pulled off at a few viewpoints, but the view of the arched sea stacks along the coast was spectacular. Cape Sebastian Scenic Corridor is just a few more miles north and is not to be missed

We were in a hurry and just made a quick little pit stop here . The views are magnificent . There is Arch Rock and then great views looking north and south . It's a great place to picnic or hike the trails or even for a short break from driving to give a chance to stretch the legs .

There are several pull offs that offers views of the ocean. Our hats are off to Oregon for having so many great parks along the coast. This southern coast of Oregon is rugged and the ocean waves seemed to be larger than the northern coast. You can spend an afternoon just doing the pull offs.

This is always a great place to stop and see the tide pools and starfish. Beauty in every direction. Huge rocks with the waves lapping away is worth the short drive down.
