Cape Arago Shoreline Trail

Cape Arago Shoreline Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Cape Arago Shoreline Trail is a section of the Oregon Coast Trail between Sunset Bay and Cape Arago State Parks that makes an appealing and varied day hike; if possible, arrange a car shuttle for this one-way walk.

Along with visits to a spectacular formal garden, and superb wildlife-watching opportunities, it offers glimpses of sculpted sandstone rocks and reefs offshore that aren’t visible except by walking the trail."
