Cape Falcon to Short Sand Beach Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Dramatically scenic Oswald West State Park honors one of the giants of the conservation movement in Oregon, a former governor who in the early 20th century had the foresight to set aside all of the state’s beaches for public access. The park’s most popular attraction is Short Sand Beach, a small but lovely strip of sand hidden away in Smuggler Cove and bordered by the towering cliffs of Cape Falcon. The park operates a unique walk-in campground in the forests above the beach that is designed so that travelers on busy Highway 101 can carry in their overnight gear and have a wilder experience than is usually possible at more developed car campgrounds."
