This State Park is absolutely fascinating! How often do you find Cobra Lily's? Definitely a great stop along your drive down the Oregon Coast. It only takes a few minutes and it is close to the highway, but can be easy to drive past. The restroom isn't great, so you might want to find somewhere else to go.

Very easy to get to and hope to go back when the Cobra Lilly's are in bloom. If you have never stopped take the extra 15-minutes to check out this unique and spectacular point of interest.

It is a pitcher plant bog, located on the right hand side of Highway 101 (heading north). There is a boardwalk all around it, and thousands of pitcher plants. Something very unusual to stop and see on the land side of the highway.

Just yards off Highway 101 this could be a quick and easy stop. Short, level path takes you through a beautiful forested area.

this is a nice walk though a little small. Go in may or early june when the picture plants are blooming. At other times of the year if you are looking for a small walk through the woods this is good.

Interesting plants. I believe it's called "Cobra Lillies" which is same family as the Venus fly trap plants. They look like little aliens. Nice short walk in the park.

This is just a lovely, quiet place to visit. It is not too long or a. strenuous walk. It was right close to our hotel, just north of Florence, OR.

This park is almost on US 101, and is a very nice, short walk into the woods. Very educational for the kids as well. Don't forget to keep an eye out for the mushrooms along the way.

If you have 10 minutes to spare this is easy to find and see being just off the highway. It's a short walk down the rainforest-like path to the bog area to see these awesome plants. The parking area has an outdoor restroom, water fountain, and picnic table.

A very quick stop off 101 and well worth the ten minutes to walk through. Fascinating for both kids and adults. Take the time to see this!
