Facilities

Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area extends one mile out from the Oregon coast. The 93-foot lighthouse has been guiding ships along the coast since August 20, 1873. Accessibility: The trail surface is paved and it is typically at least six feet wide. The estimated average grade is 2% and the max grade is 4% on this route. It is suggested that wheelchair/mobility equipment and stroller users stay on this route and avoid going on the trails further south because the steep greatly increases there, up to 25%.

There is a restroom by the parking lot.

The park is partially closed and they did not charge an entrance fee. Nice tidal pools if you visit at low tide.

Road up to the Lighthouse is closed and the Lighthouse is closed, as well. The short walk from the end of the parking lot up to the Lighthouse is closed due to a new paint job that is underway. From 101 to the end parking lot is just over 2 miles. We hit it on a cold and windy day but still well worth the trip. Awesome views and Lighthouse if you're into those things.

Beautiful coastal walk to lighthouse. Park was closed to vehicle traffic which made for nice one way walkways for pedestrians.

Great little hike scenic view of Lighthouse, all kinds of sea birds, seals, whales, and a nice cobblestone beach that makes a nice sound as the wave recedes back into the ocean. a tidal pool exploring at low tide.

Easy and nice walk to the light house and plenty to see but the smell of the birds can overpower your senses at times. Very cool to go to the top of the lighthouse.

Tide was low so easy to see the seals with the pups. Amazing views from the base of the lighthouse, too. I highly recommend this, especially if traveling with family.

Great if you are seeking a sanitized experience. To be honest, it makes me sad to go there. I spent a lot of time there as a kid when it was truly wild. It was so beautiful. Now, it's pavement and fences.

Neat lighthouse, nice views plenty of birds and critters to see. Make sure to checkout the cobble beach pictures don't do it justice.
