A treasure in the lower 48 in the USA...Turn at each and every opportunity to enjoy each and every viewpoint. No other scenic byway has vistas of the Pacific Ocean coast line like this one. For Photographers - This is an absolute MUST!!!

Saw a article about must see places along the Oregon coast and this place meets that. I went to Arch Rock and what a great scenery.

This scenic drive has multiple places where you can stop and view the gorgeous ocean, walk the beach, and/or hike. It is, perhaps, one of the most scenic drives in all of Oregon. We enjoyed every minute!

we spent a significant amount of time in this area and it was highly worthwhile. Even though it was often very foggy, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Oregon's South coast is truly beautiful with lots of places to pull over and park. Some of the hikes can get pretty steep if they go down to the shore. Others just take you to a vista point.

Sorry for your difficult situation. Where I went it would not have been suitable. Where I parked was a few hundred yards from coast views and walks. I am not saying that a suitable park could not be found somewhere but it... More
