Port Orford Heads Saint Wayside - Search Nearby - Added by Josiah Roe

Unbelievable views north and south along the rugged Southern Oregon Coast.

The Port Orford Heads State Park comprises a drastically pronounced peninsula jutting out into the Pacific Ocean from the southern Oregon coast, providing breathtaking views both north to the Cape Blanco Lighthouse and south to Humbug Mountain and beyond.

The Port Orford Heads Trail is the main loop trail arounds the Park, comprised of the Headlands, Nellies Cove, and Tower trails.

To get there take the Pacific Coast Highway to Port Orford and then taking 9th Street west, bearing left on Port Orford Hwy following the signs for the state park until it dead ends in a parking lot. From here you can either follow the loop left or right around the Heads.

Along the trail you can see a bathhouse, lifeboat station, and observation tower, all which were manned with up to 100 coast guardsmen during WWII.
