Do not miss this amazingly beautiful site! It has fantastic north and south sweeping coastal views in the open spaces and intimate peeks of the sea through the forest. The trail is well maintained and relatively flat and gentle although not wide enough for wheelchairs. Someone needing a cane could probably manage but I suggest using hiking poles for better...

The Southern Oregon coast offers spectacular views, none better than the perspective from the Port Orford Head trails. The trails are short and easy and take you right from the parking lot at the Coadt Guard Lifeboat Museum out to the headbands. Big reward for little work! The ocean was sparkling, the blues and greens of the water were gorgeous.... More

An easy trail with benches to sit and drink in the fantastic views of the ocean. An old lifeguard station provides some interesting historical pictures and relics of time gone by. It is fascinating to see the boat the Coasties used to brave the sea during a rescue. We took a small box of wine, two glasses and sat on... More

Amazing sights at every turn along this easy trail above the ocean and through a beautiful forest. Good opportunity to see seals, ships and whales.

Lots of trails to choose from at different levels of difficulty and the views were amazing. Good for families and for people with dogs. We'd return.

Relatively short trails with stunning views of the ocean. The Headland's Trail is very windy. Wear a hat to keep your ears warm. The other trails (Cove Trail, Tower Trail) are more protected from the wind. Tower Trail is paved and would be easy to push a stroller on. Stay on the paths, there's poison oak in the brush.

This is a must stop when traveling through Port Orford. Interesting museum, all about the Coast Guard rescues and ship wrecks and it's free. Then the short but not too short trails around the head. We saw sealions playing in the water, wildflowers and the coastline is just beautiful. Easy walk.

This is an easy but rewarding walk. Beautiful ocean views with sweet little benches along the way should you get tired or wish to linger and enjoy. In our six day stay, we enjoyed it twice.

If you stop at the Lifeboat Museum, take time for a quick walk around the headland. Not only will you look down on the remains of the dock and ramp where the lifeboats were launched, you might see some seals, and the views are great. Definitely windy but worth it!
