Getting to the Rocky shore at Meyers Creek Rocks

The beach and rocky area on the landward side of the rocks is accessible via a 2-mile long hike down a primitive (and somewhat difficult) trail from the top of Cape Sebastian or along the beach (approximately 1/2 mile) from a pull off, off HWY 101 to the south of the park. Visual access to this shoreline is stunning from a large scenic overlook along Highway 101 near the mouth of Meyers Creek. Access to the offshore rocks is prohibited, since they are part of the Oregon Islands NWR and are important habitat for seabirds and marine mammals.
