Activities: Beach, Fishing, Crabbing & Clamming, Geocaching, Kayaking, Scenic Drives, State Parks & National Lands, Tidepooling, Walking & Hiking


Located at the end of Cape Arago Highway, you’ll find Cape Arago Beach. Tucked away below the cliffs, a short walk along the steep trails will take you to a secluded cove where tide pooling and fossils can be found. Visitors can also enjoy whale watching, fishing, and scuba diving. Two trails can be found for excellent hiking opportunities, the south trail leads to tidepools full of a variety of sea life, and the north trail lets visitors view offshore colonies of seals and sea lions. The north trail is closed from March – June to protect the seal pups during birthing season. For more information, call 541.888.3779, ext 26. Picnic tables and restrooms are available.
