Sandy beach. Beachside campground. Scenic trails. Whale watching.

Cape Lookout is a two-mile long peninsula that juts into the Pacific Ocean from Oregon's rugged coastline.

The park features more than 170 campsites, yurts, rustic cabins, and a day-use area, all located a short walk from the beach.

There are roughly 10 miles of trails ranging from easy to moderate. The 2.6 mile trail to the tip of the Cape is the most scenic and offers views of migrating whales in spring and fall.

Boring Unless You Travel Off Trail

Overall, very unimpressed with this hike. However, at the end, if you opt just jump over the fence, you can go down to a cove at the bottom which has waves splashing all around it. This was very cool, but not easy to get to and extreme caution should be taken.

This was an amazing trail for a run. The views of the ocean and beaches were incredible and not too many people.

Hike to the point of the Cape and looked for whales!
