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.

The most gorgeous hike around the bay. Panoramic views are spectacular.

The first half of the trail is by far the most incredible part. I took all day just exploring the first half of this trail. The second half, although there were sea lions, wasn't as interesting as it was mostly in the woods or alongside the road, but my opinion is biased due to my love and preference of the sea and the rocky Oregon coast.

Beautiful views and mostly well maintained

Relatively flat hike, with a few small hills sprinkled in. Really nice views of the ocean, some sections have multiple trails, very few of which are marked. There are plenty of places to watch the waves and take a break, along with a nice Botanical garden just off the trail.

I loved this trail. Being from the southeastern US this trail was totally different from the trails I normally hike. Amazing views. Highly recommend. Trail was muddy in spots but no too bad.

Awesome Oregon Coast Trail! Great viewpoints along the way and easy enough for everyone to enjoy. It would be great to pack a lunch and enjoy at one of the many benches along the trail overlooking the coastline. I would definitely come back and spend some more time here at different times of the year.

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
