Harbor, Oregon Map

Nice beach walk and stroll along river, visitors center with free brochures about Oregon and other more difficult hikes. Clean public bathrooms at visitor center.

It’s a narrow road with no view, and you share it with large mining trucks.

Homeless have moved off the beach... Probably just for the winter.

Nice beach walk with our dog. Gets busy

One of my favorite places on the planet and my dog's as well. She launched after sticks at the boat launch before we walked around the boat harbor to the beach where she hit the surf with an audience. We walked the river as well. A beautiful, interesting area that use to be one of my go to walking areas.

Nice beach with good views but pretty soft heavy sand or rocks to walk on. Beautiful views and rock formations. Today was a very flat day on the ocean. All the pictures posted are colored from the ongoing Chetco Bar Fire and it definitely was an ugly yellow sky and I hope to never see it look like this again. It's usually far more beautiful...

Went back and completed it to the mouth. Beautiful area... Be careful in the middle where the waypoint is. On the map it appears some kind of road tees to the short bluff above. There are a few homeless? camps/structures that seem to be permanent. Gave them a wide berth and had no issues. They definitely picked a pretty place to set up camp.

Great little beach by the harbor and in front of the RV park. A regular go to for getting my Lab out in the surf. Probably the best place in the area to see the Gray Whales migrating through. It's also the busiest beach in our area.

Great road with most of it dirt, gravel and rocks on the way to the bomb site. The best part was when I took the wrong turn up towards Mt Emily. Great views from there especially except for all the smoke in the distance and came upon a very nice rough campsite past the bridge and on the creek. My dog loved the creek.

Forgot this one I did about 2 years ago. I took off and told my wife to go down the south bank road and pick me up for lunch expecting to walk 6-8 miles. She went down the north bank rd and didn't find me and went to lunch with a friend.... My lunch came from an old apple tree beside the road. Some great views of the river.

Beautiful views of the Winchuck river, rock formations, tidepools and ocean. This area is probably the best tide pools near Brookings. The arches are about a mile up the beach and are a great bonus. There is a bald eagle in the area that I saw this morning a couple of times as well. I love seeing eagles. When there is bait near the mouth of the river there are a lot of Ospreys too. Be sure and check the tides and do it on a low tide. The tide during these pics was about 2.0'.

One of my 2 dogs favorite places. When time is short this is close... My lab loves to run off the boat launch after the sticks she finds. I really enjoy it for the views of the harbor, river and the Chetco bar.

Short little easy loop suitable for many including those in an off road wheelchair. I f you were in a chair you could skip the beach part. The trail is flat and easy and safe for kids. I saw more people than usual here today. Layed down my 1st complete track on this one.

Nice meander along the beach. There is no marked path, or a real hike for that matter, but if you're looking for a meandering walk along the beach and some fun tide pools, this is a good fit.

Beautiful beach to walk on into California. There is also a trail in the trees that is north of the parking lot that you can access the winchuck river. Dogs love it too.

One of my go to walks with my dogs. On the Crissey Field end they have to be leashed but on the other end there are far less people and Pelican doesn't require a leash. Beautiful beach with great open ocean views. Off in the distance most days you can see the lighthouse and many rock formations including Camel Rock out in front of Crissey Field. You also have the option of playing with the dogs or fishing in the Winchuck river or off the beach on the Oregon side. Very common to see Seals, Sea Lions and Ospreys on the hunt near the mouth of the river.
