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.

FEE AREA. Nice walk to the lighthouse with great views. A lot of fun and well worth it.

Totally recommend this walk! Amazing views of the beaches and animals! We even saw a whale nearby! The stench is quite horrid but it goes away after a while.

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.

Really cool lighthouse, cool beach with big rocks, and fun hike up the hill to get 360 views of the coastline.

Short easy hike/nature walk. Lots to see when the tide is low. We saw seals and their pups and were told some of the mama seals were getting ready to birth. The tide pools were full of life. We spotted an Eagle and several other birds I haven’t ID’d yet. The interpretive center was nice and staffed by friendly knowledgeable people. It cost $7 to park unless you have a Federal parks pass.

Rainy Day on the Oregon Coast but that just led to the mystique and beauty. Great Lighthouse tour and guide. Highly recommended!

This can be pretty brutal on windy days but if you get good weather, it’s such a beautiful view. Great for kids because it’s short and scenic, and there is a black rock beach just below the lighthouse. You can often get pretty close to sea lions playing nearby.

Easy paved walkway with great views. Take binoculars to look for whales. The flies were really bad that day, but at least they didn't bite. Federal run park. $7 fee but good for 3 days
