Samuel Boardman Scenic Corridor, SW Oregon Coast

on May 21, 2019

After spending a few days soaking in the incredible energy and beauty of the Northern California Redwoods forests, my husband and I spent a day exploring the Samuel Boardman State Scenic Corridor on the southern Oregon coastline. It was cloudy and cold, but still a beautiful day. The coastline is rugged and wild, and was not at all crowded this time of year. Just the way I like to hike.

We stopped at the many viewpoints and beaches along the corridor, exploring and hiking as we went along. Our favorite was hiking down a sketchy and steep trail to the Natural Bridges. While we didn’t go out onto the actual bridges, we hiked to the base of them and enjoyed the view for a while before climbing back up.

We had a picnic lunch on Waleshead Beach and spent a long time walking the sands, exploring rocks, finding caves, listening to the pounding waves, and feeling the peace one gets from spending time at the ocean.

    I love beach hikes. This is going on my list ! I spent a few days in Manzanita and can’t wait to go further down the coast. That water is so green … beautiful !
