Haystack Rock is sheer awe. Standing next to it or taking pics from afar captivates everyone who ventures to see it. Tide pool sea life and birds are fascinating to see and observe.

Enjoyed watching a beautiful sunset at Haystack Rock. Beautiful clear weather & lots of people walking the beach. Great ending to an enjoyable day in the area.

Walked up to the rocks when the tide was out. It was fun looking at the little sea critters and trying to find shells and rocks. The massive rock is impressive, but in my opinion it is more beautiful from a distance.

It's amazing to walk on the beach and see such a giant rock in the water so close to the shore. Cannon Beach is a nice coastal town and worth a visit. A great place to be when the sun sets.

When the sun is out at the OR coast there isn't a more beautiful place. Warm, sunshine and a killer view!

The walk to Haystack is a little bit of a walk, but worth it. The starfish, anemone and puffins are awesome to see. Took great pictures.

You can no longer visit the Goonies' house in Astoria. There are no trespassing signs in the driveway. I read another review that said if you ride down a side street on a bike you can somewhat see it.
