This corridor is a 12 mile, forested linear park with a rugged, steep coastline interrupted by small sand beaches. This park was named in honor of Samuel H. Boardman, the first Oregon Parks superintendent. He and others of his generation felt this shining green emerald coastline should be saved for the public. What gems they gave us: admire the 300-year old sitka spruce trees, gaze at the amazing Arch Rock and Natural Bridges, and walk the 27 miles of Oregon Coast Trail that weave through giant forests. Seaside prairies, spectacular vistas, secluded cove beaches, rugged cliffs and forested sea stacks come one after the other at this park. Visit old mining sites. Stand and ponder the old shell middens and wonder what it was like to live in a native American village by the Pacific Ocean.

Go right at the parking lot. Beautiful!

Taking the waterfall path was really a beautiful hike, I really enjoyed the breathtaking views and how secluded it was. By far the best beach I've been on at the Oregon coast. So happy that all trails led us there!

WATCH OUT FOR POISON OAK! Hiked around here and Secret Beach and got into lots of poison oak. Look it up and be familiar with it. Serious stuff!

we didn't do the trail but went to the beach. it was great. we'll do the trail next time!

this was not near brookings. it was past gold beach. didn't hike it. maybe next time when i feel like driving longer to get here.

Eerie is the word for this hike today. We are in the middle of the Chetco Bar Fire and it's pretty dark and gloomy. The trail is good and you can see by the pics the awesome views from above. You can see the lines in the pics are the sky full of smoke rolling out from the river and meeting blue sky Not much blue anywhere near us..... Hopefully I'll never see our beautiful home area affected like this again.

Beautiful beautiful beach!! Short hike, a little uphill on the way back.
