The Otter Crest Loop is the highest point on this part of the coastline. The views are simply amazing. There is a lovely old road you take and it is pretty quiet most of the time. It will narrow to one lane, but don't worry,...More

This is a beautiful secluded drive in the cliffs above the beach. Well worth the side trip. The road leads to devils punch bowl. Go at high tide.

I live in Depoe Bay and drive this Short loop often--I think it is Nature at its best. Outstanding views, Very peaceful! A must on the coast!

Excellent ranger advice on whale watching at Cape Foulweather. Highly pleasurable places to pull off and watch the sea, the beaches, the birds, seals, and often whales this time of year.
