Viewpoints of Ecola State Park

Cannon Beach, Ecola State Park sunset

This day-use area is just north of the city limits, after a mile and a half drive through a thick forest - after the signs proclaiming the park’s entrance.

The main section of the park is Ecola Point, where numerous viewpoints offer you glimpses of Cannon Beach, Haystack Rock and the lighthouse. It’s a popular spot for whale watching during the twice-yearly migrations.

There is also a trailhead leading over another bluff to Indian Beach - another mile away.
