8 Best Places For Hiking Tour Of Oregon Coast

1. Ecola State Park 

Hike from the viewpoint to Indian Beach, or go farther north on this portion of the Oregon Coast Trail.

2. Oswald West State Park 

My favorite is the Cape Falcon trail. There’s also a short, easy trail to Short Sand Beach — or try the Elk Flats trail to Devil’s Cauldron. 

3. Devils Punchbowl State Natural Area 

Mainly a viewpoint, but definitely a must-stop. 

4. Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area 

Mainly a viewpoint, but again, a must-stop with a beautiful lighthouse.  

5. Seal Rock State Recreation Site 

Again, mainly a viewpoint with a paved trail above rock formations and beach access.

6. Cape Perpetua Scenic Area 

The ocean views along the Captain Cook Trail between Spouting Horn and Devils Churn are some of the best. 

7. Heceta Head State Park  

The half-mile trail to the lighthouse offers great views, though you can hike for miles along a section of the Oregon Coast Trail. 

8. Cape Blanco State Park 

Great for a short stop for the views and the lighthouse, but there are trails from here too.
