Yaquina Head and Abandoned Experiment of Quarry Cove

These days, one of its more popular features in the former intertidal area, carved out of an old rock quarry. Called Quarry Cove, there are wheelchair-accessible paved paths that once weaved in and out of rocky tide pool areas that were created to see what happens when rocky shelves are left alone to become colonies of marine life. That experiment failed, and now it's filled with sand. Wheelchaired folks can gain access through a special gate: ask for the key at the gate.
