Explore '17 Solar Eclipse Oregon - view hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse will be visible from the contiguous United States! It will be the first solar eclipse to traverse coast to coast in nearly a century and the first to occur solely in the United States since the country was founded! To celebrate this epic event, The AllTrails Team has created a list of Oregon’s top-notch eclipse-viewing spots! What better place to watch the eclipse than from the Oregon Coast? Enjoy the lush canopies of fir and cedar that tower above and the miles of plunging, rocky cliffs that stretch alongside the Pacific. With a view framed by an ocean horizon, Oregonians can revel in having one of the best seats in the house, in one of the first places in the U.S to see the eclipse. The eclipse will first touch Oregon at approximately 10:15am. The sun will be totally obscured by the moon for a 1-2 minute period before exiting the state at about 10:27 am. From the Coast, the moon’s shadow will race east toward Salem. Worried about a foggy forecast covering your seaside view? Have no fear! Oregon is teeming with strikingly beautiful inland sites within the 'path of totality' that will surely fulfill your nature and eclipse needs. Check out those inland gems on our list! The Willamette Valley and Deschutes River Valley seem to be the safest bets for clear skies on the day of the eclipse. Be sure to consider traffic, camping, and sleeping arrangements if you will be making an overnight trip as an estimated 7 million people will be migrating to this path.

I Loved loved loved Devil’s Punch Bowl. Beautiful views of the ocean, rock formations and a wide variety of wild flowers! (August 2016)

The painted hills are more of a little walk/hike. The landscape is stunning and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Definitely worth the drive! (August 2016)hik

It was Crowded! However, considering just how beautiful it is, as well as how well it's maintained, I am not the least surprised.

Amazing hike! Went all the way up to the tarn and it was worth it, saw a goat as well! Ended up doing this hike after running into closure left and right due to fires in Sept. Road to get to the trail head was long and bumpy... had to drive slow to get there in my small sedan. Only passes two people the entire time on the hike.

Loved hiking this trail today. It was quiet and well maintained. Fun to hike through some snow as well! It was a good workout and the view was totally worth it!

Absolutely beautiful!! I did the whole loop starting at South Falls. Took me a little over 4 hours (I like to linger at the falls for a lil while!) Overall amazing! Definitely take the Canyon Trail. It follows the creek most of the way and you get the best views of the falls. I went right when the park opened at 8am on a Tuesday and barely saw another person. The park also has a wonderful day use area with lots of picnic tables and open spaces. 10 out of 10!!!

Hiked to the top but only saw smoke due to the recent fire. Will return once the air clears!

Nice easy hike. Well maintained and clearly marked. Great view of the falls from the suspension bridge. Parking is $5.
