One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I saw it on my first trip to the Oregon Coast. It was a rainy day, but that just made the scene even more remarkable, I think. Definitely worth a visit.

We enjoyed the view and walked the trails at Ecola. There were longer hikes but the short treks were great to take in Haystack Rock and the lighthouse. Our visiting guests loved it!

Beautiful walking trails from above the ocean that gradually winds down to the beach. So breathtakingly beautiful and to be one with nature. Awesome opportunities for pictures at the overlook, looking toward the rock arch and lighthouse, as well as haystack rock.

A lot of trail opportunities, but parking is limited, and I worried about security. Got to the end of the road to see an amazing, pristine beach (seems to be an Oregon beach state park hallmark) and sunshine in November. We wanted to hike up...More
