Tour provided by volunteers which added to our experience. He was knowledgeable about not only this lighthouse but the entire coastline of lighthouses.

Probably the most beautiful lighthouse on the coast. The lower beach area is real pretty. Take a short hike (1/2 mile) up to the lighthouse and definitely take the 10 minute tour. Very interesting and informative.

We stayed at the Washburne state park campgrounds and did a hike to this lovely lighthouse. The hike was about 2 mi each way from the trailhead off the highway, and we walked along beautiful coastal trees. Good short hike, about medium in steepness.

Could not get up close to the lighthouse but it looks lovely from afar. There are several viewpoints to pull over and see the lighthouse.

We got to see the lighthouse at daybreak, and there was a fog bank rolling in. Very cool! We had visited before, and got to take the tour. Learning about lighthouses was way more interesting than we expected.

Wow! We parked and took an easy, though uphill, gravel 1/2 mile path to the 56' lighthouse that sits atop a 206' bluff. The path provided magnificent views of beach, rocks and surf at almost every turn. The lighthouse is still in use and Oregon's...More

There's a paid parking lot at the base of the hill where the beach is. It's off the US 101, just follow the signs. On google maps it's the Heceta Head Lighthouse State Scenic Viewpoint. Then take a short hike up the hill to... More

Yes - you can get there via a path which originates from the parking lot at the base of the hill. Heceta Head Lighthouse is at the top (about 1/3 of a mile up the hill with a light-to-moderate incline), with a beautiful 140... More
