We enjoy visiting Ecola State Park. Indian Beach has spectacular views and the Tillamook Head Trail does as well. Definitely worth a stop, and particularly good for a picnic on a nice day.

This is a beautiful rain forested state park right on the Oregon coast. The ferns and trees are amazingly beautiful.
