Not only did we enjoy the various natural phenomenons along the ocean like Thor's Well and Cook's Chasm, but the hike up the Big Spruce Trail was fun. The big trees in Oregon are wonderful!

A little difficult in places, but just go slow and enjoy the outdoors! Well worth the couple of hours it takes to hike this trail. Take pictures and see the Giant Spruce and Rock Well. Get the Oregon Coast Passport and go to Heceta Lighthouse...More

The interpretative display of the local flora was impressive and obviously a significant time commitment by the volunteer who takes it on each day. The trails are well maintained and visitor center staff were out and about and welcomed questions. This is a perfect spot...More

Our first trip to the Oregon coast couldn't have been better. It has to be one of the most beautiful areas possible. We stayed at the Fireside Motel in Yachats and explored this entire area and it was all spectacular. Give yourself plenty of time...More
