Yaquina Head to Yaquina Bay Trail

Yaquina Head to Yaquina Bay Trail Professional Review and Guide

"In 1871 a lighthouse was built at the entrance to Yaquina Bay, the first lighthouse north of the Umpqua River on the Oregon coast. Three years later it was mothballed when the more effective Yaquina Head Lighthouse went into service just up the coast. Between them stretch 3.5 miles of beach.

Both lighthouses are accessible by car and are open for tours, daily in summer at this writing. If you’re not in a rush, consider walking from one to the other, on what served as the main coastal highway in the 1870s and for several decades thereafter."
