“Beautiful Views on the Edge of Earth”

It was a little hard to find, until we realized that the park runs along the coast and can be accessed from any of the scenic stops along the ocean-side of the highway.

The trail leads you through beautiful, lush fern-covered forest with glimpses here and there of the ocean. Walk far enough and you'll be able to find a path that leads to down to the beach, where giant rock formations sit in the ocean, complete with sea caves and waterfalls. SO beautiful.

We went on a weekday afternoon and didn't see a soul outside of the scenic stop parking lots.

Trail can be steep at times and requires stepping over fallen trees/branches.

One of my favorite places!

This is a pull off from 101 and it is definitely worth a stop!!! It's so beautiful!!! You only have to walk down a path (under 100 ft) to a wooden overlook and BAM! you see the beauty of nature!

The "park" is really an eight-mile long corridor of cliff top viewpoints along U.S. Highway 101, overlooking offshore arches and rocks, along with steep-sided coves and even some sand dunes. Many viewpoints are great places to spot whales in the winter.

The park includes a number of places where you can park and view a variety of the best scenery on the Oregon Coast. Arch Rock, natural bridges, Whale's Head Beach and lots of high, dramatic cliffs and rock formations with lots of beautiful greenry to include ferns, hosta, wild flowers in season, a variety of evergreen and deciduous trees and shrubbery including huckleberry bushes and wild rhododendron.

The park has fantastic and well groomed trails and ocean views and rock formations that are unique for anywhere in this country. Let your husband waste his time salmon fishing while you and the kids have a terrific time enjoying Boardman State Park.
