Cannon Beach Professional Review and Guide
"Beach riding at its best. Grab lunch to go at Osburn’s Grocery Store and Delicatessen located on Hemlock Street just north of Second Street. Ride south on an endless sandy beach, passing 235-foot Haystack Rock. This distinct rock promontory is designated as part of the Oregon Islands Wildlife Refuge and is an important nesting spot for puffins, pelagic cormorants, pigeon guillemots, and western gulls. Trail surface: Sandy beach and paved road.The small coastal town of Cannon Beach, located approximately 75 miles northwest of Portland, is a popular tourist destination and home of the famous Haystack Rock. Tourists who come here can stroll through the town’s art galleries and boutiques; relax at its quaint cafes; and walk along the broad, sandy beach to see the prominent, 235-foot Haystack Rock."
