A pity about the water treatment plant!

Once you ignore the water treatment plant, this headland is lovely. There are some great walks, but sometimes you have to ignore the "danger" signs. My wife and I are 71, so tend... read more

Once you ignore the water treatment plant, this headland is lovely. There are some great walks, but sometimes you have to ignore the "danger" signs. My wife and I are 71, so tend to be careful, but we enjoyed our visit.

The view from the point was absolutely breath taking. It is a little bit of a walk around the water treatment plant, but well worth it.

Don't miss this park if you are in Brookings. The entrance is behind the sewage treatment plant so it is not that easy to find. You park in front of the plant. The trail takes you way out on a rocky peninsula that extends out into the ocean. Views are fantastic in both directions.

Easy access and walk for great views. Good birding, in part because of the water treatment plant that others eschew.

It took locals to show us where this park was but that has an advantage. It was not crowded. This point is a short hike from around the corner of the sewage plant parking lot. You can either hike down to the beach or up to the chetco point. The view is stunning from the point. The day we went... More

We were within walking distance to this park when we stayed in Brookings. We went in the morning to check out the tide pools and then went back in the evenings to eat our dinner overlooking the ocean. Very peaceful and had the place to ourselves.

but they really need to plant some trees and bushes along the path there to enhance the experience. They are proud that they spent a lot of money making a path halfway around the sewage plant as an investment already.maybe some vines on the sewage plant fence would help.

The walking path is nice and easy and well maintained the park and trail are right in the center of town and has very beautiful views from the top of the point. There are picnic tables and a short. Walk down to the beach

This is a nice location to walk around to kill some time. The path is pretty easy (even the path with the warning sign) and it takes you to an amazing view of the coast. Excellent place to take photographs.

Chetco point is one of Brookings most beautiful walks. Paths lead to the top of a high bluff that sticks out into the Pacific Ocean with views extending almost to 360 degrees. I have walked these unique trails many times and always get excited and have my spirits lifted. Be prepared for some wind, but the experience is always worth... More
