This is a nice little drive to scenic viewpoints. The coastline, with its rugged rocks and churning waves, is quite interesting.

Some of the walking areas seem wheelchair compatibly, but not all are. I was able to walk where I wanted with my cane.

We saw 3 gray whales and the view is spectacular! Lots of parking. Check out the rest of Cape Foulweather! It is all just lovely.

We drove this loop on our way from Lincoln City to Newport. It parallels the highway and offers quite a few places to stop and enjoy the views, which are spectacular. It's worth the drive.

If you are in the area of Depoe Bay, it is well worth getting off the 101 and traveling on this Loop Road. They are great views of the ocean. And you can stop at various points for photographs. Not very long and you can probably do the entire loop road, including stops, in less than an hour.

Six of us stayed at the resort there for three nights and were able to explore the area. The views are amazing.

It a nice little side trip with various views of the Pacific Ocean. This is a One Way Road so be prepared and start from the north of Hwy 101.

What an AMAZING drive. We started out early in the day, and were rewarded by the sight of a large pod of gray whales frolicking (and I think feeding) really close to the overlook. The number and view was better than I've ever seen in the wild, including when taking an actual whale watching trip....and it was all 100% free!

The rest of the loop is beautiful. Every overlook is worth stopping and soaking in the rocky coast with crashing waves. Devil's Punchbowl is unique. The tide wasn't high enough when we visited to really experience the power of the water, but it was still enjoyable to view it

Do not miss this scenic drive. It was soooo worth it.

Saw more whales after only a few minutes. Beautiful views. A little more crowded that others places we visited.

Our lodging was accessed from this loop along with Devil's Churn, a coffee shop, and Mo's. A little park across from the restaurants gave access to scenic views.
