Haystack Rock, one of the most photographed landmarks on the Oregon coast, Towers 235 ft. above the sand. At low tide, pools around the base of the rock teem with marine life. The abundance of bird and marine species living on it resulted in Haystack Rock being designated a National Wildlife Refuge and Marine Garden in 1990. Visitors should heed the signs to not climb on the rock, or disturb any of the creatures found within 300 yards.

Located a few miles south of Cannon Beach, discover a little-known slice of history! Way back in the mid to late 1800's, when the coast was beginning to be settled, there were no roads. Pioneers and settlers used the beach as a "roadway" whenever possible. Using picks and hand chisels, men dug out a very narrow, primitive "road" out of the rock. This track went up over the lowest part of the point, and "hugged" the contour of it.
