About this spot

Cape Sebastian is a large, forested headland with easily accessible viewpoints and a rugged section of the Oregon Coast Trail. On clear days, the vistas from two established viewpoints can extend north for 43 miles to Humbug Mountain and south for almost 50 miles to the Point St. George Lighthouse at Crescent City, California. A 1.5-mile trail leads from the south parking area to the cliffs at the edge of the cape.

South of the cape, a sandy beach with offshore sea stacks stretches for 2.5 miles to the Pistol River, then continues another 1.5 miles to Crook Point.
