Excellent views, no guard rails to obstruct views to the north and south. Easy trail with some narrow sections.

Excellent short trail with massive playoff. Trail head is on left before parking area and not the "trail closed" at end of parking area. At blue sign pointing left, take right trail. Once you get to vistas, stop and enjoy sea arch on right but then continue on left past the sign with all the warnings. In cove just the the left watched two sea lions for quite some time. As noted, there are no fences or guardrails to protect you... Nor are they there to spoil the view.

This is an easy trail to hike and you arrive at some breathtaking vistas. It would be great with older children. There are no fences at the edges so small, young children would have to be very carefully and closely supervised.. The day we hiked the wild flowers smelled wonderful.

This place is awesome! Can't believe it took this long to discover it. Spent a few hours up here last weekend; stayed for an awesome sunset! I plan to go back again this summer!!!

This trail was short but breathtaking! It was very windy but the beauty was worth it. Numerous wildflowers grow along the cliffs and shorebirds and swallows were roosting in the cliff-sides. We loved it!

It is really a short easy walk out to a beautiful view point. The kids (ages 5 & 9) really enjoyed all the look out points, different plants, and exploring the area. It is awe inspiring, truly!

Jaw-dropping. Period. To see the point, ignore the “Oregon Coast Trail” left arrow sign and continue straight ahead.

Fun hike. Pretty views of the ocean. Some steep cliffs at the edge of the point.
