Manzanita Overlook - Ocean, Steep Cliffs
Rockaway Beach, Manzanita, Wheeler, Nehalem Bay Virtual Tour, Oregon Coast
At the bottom of these steep and dangerous cliffs lie the graveyard of a ship that crashed here in the early part of the century. Under the right summer conditions, you can walk the nearly one mile of large, uncomfortably jagged boulders to the end of the cliff bottom, and sometimes spot chunks of the ship still there. However, all you can see from up atop this vantage point are lumps of concrete left over from construction of the highway around the 30's and 40's.
There is, however, a rather famous rock structure beneath these cliffs that looks like an Indian maiden.
