Best view from Cape Sebastian

It looks like you can turn west off Hwy101 or take the Sebastian Loop which goes east of the hwy from the limited map I have. Which offers the most scenic views of the coast line without doing a lot of hiking for a couple of seniors?

The "Sebastian Loop" is the old coast highway from many years ago. Not sure it shows on your map, but if you follow it south, it will wiggle east then come close to current 101, then go east again to Pistol River, then back to 101, then way east up in the foothills to Carpenterville and will eventually make it's squiggly way back to Brookings :-)

The old highway had to go inland to avoid the dozens of creeks with steep sides that today we zip over at 60 MPH and hardly even see. The original coast road in this part of Oregon followed the original wagon road which was built over an old horse trail from the 1850's.

We've driven the old road all along its' length and except for when it parallels 101 right near it, the ocean views are limited due to terrain and vegetation. My memory of Cape Sebastian views is that there are ocean views from the parking areas but it's a "hike" to the beach or out to the actual cape.
