Majestic views with great hikes . You can pick up great literature and information from the Rangers station at Gold Beach. It's right across from the Gold beach inn.

This site is off the main 101, so it takes some searching to find it, but it's well worth the effort. One trail leads to the headlands which are magnificent, as are all the off shore rock formations and sea stacks. Be careful on the...More
