Featured by Coastal Living in 2008 as one of 5 ‘Stunning Oregon Hiking Spots’. Feel the wind on your face and blowing through your hair. This is one of the most photographed locations in Oregon — once you’ve taken in the view, you’ll be searching for your camera, too. How about a picnic lunch, then a short drive to the Indian Beach parking lot? This is a popular place for surfers to park and walk down to the beach, and is the only way to reach the beach from the park. A primitive campground for hikers traveling the Oregon coast trail lies near the military bunker viewpoint.
