Blacklock Point Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Blacklock Point was described from the north, starting from Floras Lake. Unfortunately, that hike, while still feasible, has been made less enjoyable by severe erosion that has wiped out several sections of trail and by seasonal beach closures imposed to protect the nesting sites of the threatened snowy plover. It is now better to start this trip from the east, at the tiny Cape Blanco State Airport.
This shorter approach avoids the beach and features fewer views along the way, but it includes a fun forest hike and the destination remains outstanding. Many past visitors consider little-known Blacklock Point the best-kept secret on the Oregon coast. With its tall, orange sandstone cliffs, dozens of off-shore rocks, bright May-blooming wildflowers, and hidden waterfall, you’ll find it easy to agree with that opinion."
