Situated in one of the most scenic areas on the Oregon coast, Sunset Bay State Park features beautiful sandy beaches protected by towering sea cliffs. Only a short walk from the beach, the campground has sites for tent camping and RV's, as well as cozy and comfortable yurts. Day-use and picnic facilities are located along the bay to allow easy access for beachcombing, fishing, swimming, and boating. A network of hiking trails connects Sunset Bay with nearby Shore Acres and Cape Arago State Parks. Hiking these trails will give you a chance to experience pristine coastal forests, seasonal wildflowers and spectacular ocean vistas from atop the rugged cliffs and headlands. From points along the trail, you'll be treated to views of Gregory Point and the Cape Arago lighthouse.

I live in North Bend and this is the best ocean walk in the area. If you only have time for one hike this is the right one.

Great way to spend time with family and enjoy the beautiful views

The trails to the lighthouse point are illegal trails. The point (and island) are closed to the public. Please do not go there. There are viewpoints on state park land nearby.

Easy trail. Nice lighthouse

Wear pants because the trail is fairly well covered and there are lots of sharp branches and thorns.

The most gorgeous views. I'll never get tired of being here.

Easy hike with stunning views!!

This trail has so much beauty. I'm one of the lucky ones who can call this area home. I hike here rain or shine in every season. You get the beauty of trees and the ever changing shore. You are sure to see sea lions, wild flowers, wild mushrooms, and much more. I recommend this hike to anyone!

Gorgeous! This trail never disappoints me!

This is a wonderful hike that's easy for most people. Combine this trial and go all the way to Cape Arago for a great half day hike. One of our favorites in Oregon.

Neat little area stayed near by on bastendorf beach. Amature rock climbing off trail fun little spot

What a great hike. Spectacular vistas, nice woods, beach access in a few places. I am definitely going back to this park.

Nice hike, lots of paths to explore.

Absolutely beautiful hidden Gem... The hike itself is pretty easy and clear cut. There are plenty of smaller cut out trails that lead to breathtaking views. I would highly recommend any and everyone to take this Hike...
