This is not a trail—closed to public with sign and fence.

Dear Oregon residents, Don’t privatize a beautiful landmark and then complain when people walk on your land to see it. Gorgeous lighthouse.

Kinda difficult to get down to the beach. A local guided me by entering a woods with a "No Trespassing, Private Property" sign next to it.

Very nice place to relax and look out at the ocean. I could hear the sea lions ♥️

The trails to the lighthouse point are illegal trails. The point (and island) are closed to the public. This land is owned by the Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw tribes, is a tribal cemetery and site of ceremonies. Out of respect lease do not go there. There are viewpoints on state park land nearby.

I love all the lighthouses in Oregon. This one is no different. Very pretty.
