Nice view

Nice walking trails. The views are spectacular & different depending on which trail you take. The coast guard museum is worth a tour & has a nice gift shop.

The views were stunning, the trails were relatively well maintained and we saw whales, birds and seals. If you are looking for a family activity, I would highly recommend coming here.

The trails are awesome. Breathtaking views and interesting history, too. We would go for walks here every day if we lived in Port Orford!

We "walked the Heads" the other day. The view was awesome! The geese are out of the Osprey nest in Nellie's Cove and the Osprey are back.

This is a former Coast Guard station. They have an unsinkable boat (they did lose one) where you can walk around it, but cannot go on it. The museum has interesting photos and history of life at the station. There is a path (about 1/2 mile) that takes you out by the sea with great views of the coast. It... More

Fairly Easy trails to walk and get GREAT views of Ocean / Beaches. Relatively flat with some inclines. Well worth a visit and it is FREE.

There are few places on this planet that could possibly be more beautiful. In addition to a beautiful walk in a lovely, mossy forest, you pop out at different viewpoints that allow you to view the north, west, and south beaches, heads, and horizon. The view of the coves are magical too. With seabirds, seals, and frequent whales, you will... More
