  • William Clark crossed the Tillamook Head rock formation here while scouting for supplies in 1806. He later declared it the Steepest worst & highest mountain I ever assended. (From Aerial America)
  • Magical. Don't miss this.
  • The grassy field was one of the filming locations of The Goonies. The exterior of the Lighthouse Lounge (Fratellis' hangout) was built here.
  • Best view in Cannon Beach!
  • On a clear day this is one of the best places on earth. Don't bother driving to the beach; do the hike from the upper lot. The views on the way are as good as any on the entire Pacific.
