The walk to the lighthouse was good. Great views! I don't recommend it for folks with accessibility challenges. It's not paved, it's a long walk up hill.
We hiked and dug our toes into the wet sand.
Incredible view and some very helpful volunteers near the lighthouse. Hike was nice and parking was a breeze. Nice beach nearby and toilet facilities. Small souvenir shop with friendly staff (cashier was ecstatic over me paying with a 5'er as they were running out). All in all, a nice little stop on the way.
A nice little walk to some great views.
An easy walk to a beautifully kept lighthouse.
One of the most picturesque lighthouses on the coast. Be sure to check out the lighthouse keepers house which is also a b&b. Spectacular 7 course breakfast.
Beautiful views. Nice hike to lighthouse. $5.00 to park. Flush toilets in park not working.
Great outdoors by the sea.
One of my favorites stops on the Oregon Coast, and definitely one of the most scenic and iconic of all the lighthouses. If your looking to visit a lighthouse and aren’t sure which direction to drive, don’t miss out on this one!
The Historic Value
Nice hike from the beach up to the lighthouse. Beautiful area.
The best ever!
Very nice little lighthouse in excellent condition.
A classic see Scenic Overlook great spot on the coast beautiful view Lighthouse lovers you will be in heaven also it's a bed-and-breakfast you can book early and stay overnight can't beat the Oregon coast
The guide was kind but the woman who works at the gift shop was rude she shut the door on me and my sister as we were aproaching her to ask questions. The light House is spectacular!
One of the most amazing wonders of the world! Be prepared for a little hike. But absolutely worth every step.
The Christmas Open House: spectacular location, wonderful views from the grounds, but the few small open rooms in the house were so packed with people that it was difficult to get from one room to another. We looked for some historical info and found none, although it was difficult too see anything without compromising someone's space, so there might have been some in there somwhere. It was raining so we passed on the suggested walk up to the actual lighthouse but will do that another time.
Amazing views of the coast. A short walk up to the actual lighthouse and you can see the groundskeepers home along the way. Well worth the stop and visit. Lots of history and information
Beautiful place. Closed for repairs but great vantage point on a trail behind it.
Easy half mile hike to visit history. Path is wide. I saw beautiful flowers along the way
A must stop place on your drive down the Oregon coast. Easy half mile walk up to the lighthouse. The camp hosts give short tours of the lower floor of the main lighthouse building. The view from the lighthouse hill are breathtaking.
Absolutely perfect day , 69ﾟ Sunny and a light breeze and the lighthouse was so incredibly awesome. We hiked up the trail that goes behind the lighthouse and the view was even more beautiful
Beautiful walk up to the light house. Staff very helpful
Love the view but the fence are not really pretty to take pics
Beautiful view, working lighthouse but your not allowed to go in and see the inside. You can how ever view and take pictures of the outside. Today being national lighthouse day they had rangers there to answer questions. All and all great time
Very well maintained. It is a beautiful walk to the lighthouse and amazing views everywhere
The hike to the top was short enough that my kids didn't complain and the beach was both beautiful and picturesque. The sights from the top were also stellar, but I was a bit disappointed that we could not enter the lighthouse.
Beautiful views along a beautiful trail to a beautiful lighthouse
Beautiful place beautiful scenic views, very accessible beach
I saw whales! An easy walk up to the lighthouse and very knowledgeable staff on the grounds. This place is gorgeous.
I had a blast going home after not being in Oregon for 18 years. And seeing the lighthouse with my wife and friends was a major blast
It's a gorgeous lighthouse and I wish I could go on a tour of it. The views are amazing!
The trail is an easy climb to a glorious view. There is shade often, and you get incredible views through the trees. The lighthouse itself is worth seeing, but the trail is also a treat. Midway you can visit a pretty cool gift shop with unusual items, and get a closer look at the keepers house. There are portable toilets at the top, but no water. If you want more hiking you can continue from the lighthouse up into the trees to a three mile plus trail that connects with Hobbit Beach and Carl Washburn campground and park to the north. When the ocean side parking lot is full, you can usually find plenty of spaces in the lot east of the bridge. So much to enjoy here. Absolutely worth the stop, or a special trip.
If you visit the lighthouse (short uphill walk from the parking lot) you MUST do the Hobbit Trail hike down to Hobbit Beach. It was such a unique and memorable hike. It does have lots of ups and downs so bring water! The forest trees were surreal when we were up high and the beach at the end was stunning. Definitely worth the ~3.5 mile hike!
Love the walk up the the hill, very peaceful and green. Lovely view and helpful people who love to share it's history
Fun place to visit! Great views!
The park tour guides do a wonderful job making the history of the lighthouse come alive. They are eager to answer questions and steer the topic in whatever direction you find interesting. If you want to experience the beach, go during low tide and explore the tide pools. The hike up to the lighthouse is short and easy, but it also connects to longer trails for more challenging hiking if that's what you want.
The parking was limited at the first lot and the second lot was definitely needed. The rest rooms were inadequate for the volume of people that visit. There was another rest room there but was not functional ?? The card pay terminal was not operating which kept people without cash to pay for the day use fee. The beach area was very nice and well maintained. The trail to the light house was not to steep but could use a couple of rest benches between the beginning and the light house keepers residence and then again between the gift shoppe and the light house. Mostly for elderly people and those less able for the hike. The volunteers were wonderful and there were two portable out houses there and were clean and had hand sanitizer available. The light residence was amazing and completely restored and functional as a B & B. All in all a great place to enjoy beautiful Oregon coast vistas and lite forest hiking and probably one of the most beauriful light house keepers residences and working light houses in the world. Definitely worth stopping and taking the time to hike the trail to the top.
Clean, organized and so much fun!! Lots of people bringing their dogs too.
Great beach! Lots of parking. Beautiful scenery.
Beautiful area of Oregon coast!! Nice walk up the hill to enjoy what's been around for years
Prettiest lighthouse we visited along the coast!!! There’s a one mile round trip “hike” to the lighthouse but well worth it! There were people working for the state of Oregon up at the lighthouse with a spotting scope to look at seals for free. The keepers house is just a little ways down the trail but not open for tours. There was a trail that went above the lighthouse as well so you can get some nice pictures with the ocean as a backdrop. The tour guide of the lighthouse was very knowledgeable and answered everyone’s questions!
This is by far the most beautiful park I have been to. Sea caves, star fish, beautiful 360 views. The little gift shop is adorable as well and had a lot of options to chose from. There is a parking fee but it gets you into the park all day, so you can always leave and come back later.
Beautiful place to visit even on rainy days.
Beautiful area of the coast. Several spots on 101 to view lighthouse from a distance at sunset.
Was closed for refurbishment but the cove below was a delight. Many tide pools and caves to discover at low tide.
Beautiful walk up to the grounds. Great overlook to the ocean. We saw whales from the overlook. No yours inside, though.
Very picturesque. The tour guide at the house was very informative, as well as the other volunteers on the grounds.
Very cool place with a nice man that gives tour for donation only. Its all together a cool and unique expieriance with a gorgeous view of the ocean and watch out for the ghost!
Spectacular views and a really knowledgeable volunteer guide.
Beautiful historic spot. Vague information on weather they would be open and would give tours. Turns out it is closed for repairs that may NEVER be done.
Nice view, nice little walk as well to the lighthouse. The lighting was spectacular, at first it was all misty but later it got real sunny and we even returned to the light house for another look
Another magical Oregon Coast location
We arrived around 7pm and had the place to ourselves. Short and beautiful hike that leads to the keeper's quarters and then on to the lighthouse. Gorgeous views. Crowded on summer weekends.
Lot's to see and do here in addition to the light house. The beach is very nice. The bridge over the little Creek is absolutely beautiful. The light keeper's house is darling. Then there is the light house AND the views are amazing. Well worth the short hike.
Great walk and views
Make sure to run the trail that leads to the lighthouse. Great trail from the campground 3 miles away.
It was a cool lighthouse and a pretty bike. The beach was fun to explore. It's 5$ to park.
Hike to the lighthouse was easy, pretty smooth. Take a stroller if you don't want to carry a baby half a mile there then half a mile back. Hike is slightly uphill. Beach was awesome too! Take cash for parking fee
Beautiful view. Great and knowledgable guides
Any day of the year one of the most beautiful spots in Oregon to visit rain snow or shine
We got a very good history lesson on how the lighthouse came into being by the most knowledgeable and respectful hostess. A real must see with the most beautiful view of the ocean.
Nice hike and beautiful views of the ocean. We wish we could have looked in the lighthouse but it was closed. Worth the hike though!
What a gorgeous lighthouse. The walk up to it wasn't to bad, and well with the visit. The scenery is beautiful.
Beautiful. A relatively easy walk up to a lovely working lighthouse. We were there on a day with bright sunny weather, which may have influenced us. The view of the ocean, the rocks, nesting seabirds, and of course the lighthouse was very enjoyable. There is a fee, payable by credit card at an automated pay station in the parking lot. It's one of the easier pay stations to manage; some can be a bear to navigate.
Love this light house
Excellent views and wonderful volunteers offering up the history of the place
What an incredible location. The lighthouse wasn't open as it is waiting for an inspection by the county on work that had just been completed. The gravel road up to the lighthouse is handicapped/powerchiar accessible. The views are stunning all along the way. There were a couple Oregon State Parks volunteers, up at the lighthouse, they were happy to share the history and chit chat.
About a half mile hike to the lighthouse but with the hike. Gradual incline to it so ok for older folks to hike up to. Super nice park volunteers walking around who will give you some great history.
Great place to tour the historic aspects of Oregon coast or just run out and dip your toes in the water. Lovely historic bed and breakfast for honeymooners, quaint little gift shop, tours of the lighthouse itself or just a place to hang out on a cozy little beach. This sand spot is protected by cliffs on either side making it one of the least windy beaches in Oregon. I used to come here at night when I was in high school and we built fires in the sand and played guitar. Those were the days.
We attended the public tour of the living quarters. Very interesting history as well as pictures and original features of the house. Well worth it.
Beauty: Ocean, Scopes to look at Ocean life.
Hiked over from the Hobbit Trail. It was a beautiful walk, and a gorgeous light house!
Awesome lighthouse. Great views and beach area

Love this place. The history of it is amazing.
Fantastic views, friendly people and helpful volunteers to guide you through the area. I believe parking was +/- $5 (worth it). It's a really great photo op place.
Closed for repairs on the inside, but the grounds and outside were fabulous. Live this. Lighthouse. It's small and very quaint. The park staff were wonderful.
Good easy hike up for kids and dogs, awesome views
Beautiful scenery from above and the beach! Fog creates a mystical feel. Friendly tour guides though lighthouse was closed for repairs.
I love this place. It has a unique atmosphere, a simple hike out to the light house, and quite the beach to play on and not as crowded as other spots along the coast.
Awesome spot to chill on the beach. Little to no wind most of the time. Cool hike up to the lighthouse. Well maintained and decently clean public restrooms (better than most).
I drove 3:30 hours to get this place from Portland and I don't regret it. I found this place on Instagram and had it saved on my phone. I finally got here and felt like I was in a dream. The beach where you park is amazing and so blue. Im from Cali down south and the beaches don't look anything like this. But that was the icing on the cake. When you go up for a short hike you get to see the lighthouse and it's so wonderful. So many great photo opportunities. This is a place that makes you feel like you don't want to leave.
The lighthouse is really nice and there are lots of little fact boards to read. You can't actually go into the lighthouse but you can get tours of the lighthouse keepers house. There is also a small gift shop and right down the road is the sea lion caves so it's fun to do both.
My trip to this lighthouse with my family was wonderful. The hike to the top was short enough that my kids didn't complain and the beach was both beautiful and picturesque. The sights from the top were also stellar, but I was a bit disappointed that we could not enter the lighthouse.
Favorite Lighthouse ever! Worth the short walk. Beautiful weather this visit as well as last time.
As beautiful as it gets when it's sunny.
Amazing! Nice short 1/2 mile hike to the lighthouse. Beautiful beach and plenty of gorgeous views.
Very beautiful and amazing people
We were passing through from our visit to Sweet Creek Falls hiking in the forest and the beach was cold! It was great to see the Pacific ocean though...
Nice lighthouse and an easy hike.
Awesome hike and view classic oregon place
So beautiful one of my favorite stops along highway 101
Beautiful location spectacular views especially at sunset. Hike up the short trail up to the lighthouse and make sure you stay just past sunset to experience a great backlit view of the lighthouse with it's rotating light.
On the way to the lighthouse (if you are going down from Cannon beach to the lighthouse), you can drop by the Thor's well. It will be a nice coastal drive and enjoyable trip indeed! I was here in the end of Sep so the weather was prrfect as it wasn't too hot or cold.
Nice little hike to the lighthouse. Great beach nearby to explore also.
Stunning location easy access make this Beautiful Historic Lighthouse a must visit along the Oregon coast. You won't be disappointed.
There is a half mile hike from the parking lot down by the beach to the lighthouse, but it’s a pleasant ascent of the road and very scenic. There are guided tours depending on the season and availability of staff. We weren’t lucky enough this time, but the picturesque views and wide ocean vistas were totally worth it.
Was gorgeous! The trail wasnt muddy and well maintained.
Attraction has self pay ticket kiosk. Expected a ranger tour at 11am. Arrived at the Lighthouse to find out that it is closed for touring due to repairs. No sign.
Nice place to see the ocean, small beach with restrooms... They smell though...
Half way up is a gift store and a view of the House, Lighthouse, and the Ocean. If you go the rest of the way up you will be at the Lighthouse and see more of the ocean. The trail is gravel and my Husband's power chair made it up and back with some issues. There is a Beach that you can get to the Ocean. Lots of Fun.
Beautiful views from up at the light house. It’s a mild uphill hike from the parking lot and well worth the walk.
Great little lighthouse on the coast! Easy to get to if you park in the lot. We walked from Hobbit Trailhead. The hike was very steep up and down but offered some amazing views. Worth a stop at the lighthouse or the next viewpoint to the south so you can see it in its glory.
I can't wait to stay at the bed and breakfast that is in the headlight Keeper's House. Incredible hike very beautiful area. My Fitbit told me I went up 40 flights of stairs.
Beautiful Views, Great Beach. The Oregon coast at it's finest
Did u know its haunted the lightkeepers house i mean
Great little hike up to lighthouse.
For some of our group the first look at the Pacific lovely
Love the history of this Lighthouse. Amazing views, great people here to help. They also have a Bed n Breakfast
Beautiful beach. Had a crowd but it was Labor Day so no surprise. The walk up to the lighthouse was nice. Stopped about halfway up to check put the gift shop and get some ice cream and souvenirs. There was a wedding going on at the Lightkeeper's house and apparently it is a bed and breakfast. Gorgeous views. A bit of a hike to the top where the lighthouse was bit we passed families and seniors so it was not that bad. The views were worth it!
This might be my favorite place in the world. During the day, it's gorgeous. The hike up the hill to the innkeepers house and to the lighthouse itself is very pretty with fantastic views. Down below is a gorgeous beach hidden in this little cove. Once you get to the top of the hill, there's a beautiful rotating bulb light I was there. There's not a lot of those left on the West Coast, and it really is a beautiful thing But nothing compares to what the place is like at night. Get there just as the sun is going down and you'll be treated to an absolutely gorgeous sunset. That in itself is worth the hike up the hill. But the real magic happens when the sun goes down and it gets dark. Go there on a warm summer evening, and some timer on been diet, when it's really dark out, you'll see the most amazing light show. Lay down on the grass, stir up at the beautiful stars, and watch these beams of light project themselves almost 20 miles off the coast. I really do think it is one of my most favorite places in the world.
This is a relatively nice lighthouse; easy trail up and a decent view at the top. Nothing too special though. Not too many lighthouses on the Oregon coast so might still be worth the stop.
What a great view and easy hike
Interesting stop with fabulous views of the ocean and wildlife. Lighthouse keeper's house is great. I'd love to sit on the porch and watch the ocean for hours.
Great little hike up to the light house, and nice little beach to hang out at.
Amazing place. Can feel yourself go back in time. Beautiful scenery. Every picture looks like a postcard.
Beautiful place, relaxing, and romantic!!
Lots of rocks to watch waves crash against and very well maintained. Accessibility inside seems limited sans tour.
Wonderful shady forest hike to the keepers house and lighthouse.
this beach is one of my favorite places in Oregon; it's my happy place....
If you like lighthouses, this is a must see. While not maintained by the Coast Guard it is still a working lighthouse. The lighthouse was beautifully restored. We were not able to tour inside due to limited tours but the docents were very knowledgeable. The lightkeepers house is not open to the public. Awesome views.
The lighthouse was closed because we where late. Love the place and the lookout! It's worth the effort to walk to the lighthouse!
Cool enough. Good views. $5 fee to park.
This is my FAVORITE lighthouse on the Oregon coast. (But there are many other awesome lighthouses on the Oregon ciast. My only complaint is from the local businesses & gidt shops in town calling the lighthouse "Heck-uh-tuh" !!!! Good grief! What an awful butchering of a name! Really???? NOT! The lighthouse is named after a "SPANISH" exployer, and his name was pronounced "Huh--see-tuh...NOT.."HECK-A-TUH! I know I'm a detail freak, but I think the LOCAL businesses in the nearby cities SHOULD KNOW THE PROPER PRONOUNCITION of their awesome local lighthouses! Do some easy, fast research on HOW to pronounce your great lighthouses! Don't be an uninformed, unaware shop owners butchering their local famous lighthouses! (I've done the research.....Heceta IS pronounced "Huh-see-tuh!! Be an informed local resident.......dont tell your tourists & local patrons the wrong pronounciation!!!)
An iconic spot on Oregon’s coast. Nice to visit and we walked on the Hobbit trail off the beach for some extra steps and scenery, although you can just park nearby if you want.
Heceta Head Lighthouse and state park are wonderful to enjoy throughout the year. The Lightkeepers house built in 1894 is now a bed and breakfast and was an enjoyable stay.,
Nice lighthouse and brilliant free tour of the lightkeeper's house
Took the trail from Hobbit beach. Great hike and an awesome vantage point of the lighthouse from the trail.
First time here on the Oregon coast. It is simply amazing the beauty in our country
Lovely little .25 mile hike up to lighthouse. Beach access at parking lot below. Very well maintained.
This was a great place to stop for a few hours. They even have summer tour guides. We went to 2 light houses in the area and this one was the best! Everything is being taken care of nicely! Plus I see you can stay at the Keeper's house as a bed and breakfast. Nice hike to the light house for the whole family.
Parking was plentiful. The beach and cove were breathtaking. There was a short hike up the hill to the lighthouse which provided a romantic setting and great picture opportunity.
My favorite lighthouse on the Oregon coast. Great views, nice beach. The hike to the lighthouse is beautiful.
Pretty beach, highly recommend taking the hiking trail beyond the light house for some really killer views of the coast and a nice leg pump ;)
It’s kinda good place, you not only can take good pictures with the sea but also the lighthouse. ✌️✌️✌️✌️
Amazing, top of the world views
The lighthouse is cool...you can't go up in it because the stairs are over 100 yrs old and it isn't safe, but it has a great view point, and the Lightouse keepers Inn, is now a bed and breakfast and it is so unique inside!! They have about 6 rooms with different themes, if you want a unique getaway...go stay there!! The views of the water are gorgeous and it is a short walk down to the water.
I keep giving everything five stars because its ALL AWESOME. This short half mile uphill trail takes you to the lighthouse keepers beautiful old house and then on to the old lighthouse.
A nice little hike up to a well maintained lighthouse. I didn't get to go into the lighthouse due to maintenance, but the trail is very well kept and there are still a few buildings that you can go inside and talk to knowledgeable staff. There's also a nice little beach right at the parking lot. A fun place for a picnic or just hanging out for a bit. Be careful of the tides though. There are some fun rocks to go out and play on but we almost saw some people get stranded because the tide came in while they were playing on the rocks. Good times, dumb people. Five Stars.
Awesome, wonderful place. Amazing to look at, photograph, and visit.
Nice hike. Pretty view.
Super pretty lighthouse and outstanding area. We were able to tour it as well while we were there. There's a pretty decent amount of parking. It's a little bit of a hike to get to the lighthouse, not bad at all but you do have to walk up a slight hill to get to it. The views are amazing! You park by a stunning bridge and beach. There's so many stunning photo opportunities here! There'shop if you're into souvenirs. There's some hiking trails as well if you want different viewpoints.
The location is gorgeous & the trails are in excellent condition. Plenty of volunteers available. The lighthouse was closed while repairs were being made.
Always love going to see the lighthouse and heading up the trail. Good workout, too!
Beautiful! If you are in fair shape the half mile hike up to the light house is super. wide level path, good for families. amazing views. gift shop at keepers house. Take the steps path up a few more switchbacks to get an up close view of the lens -- level with it, about 25' away. You can see the colors in the prisms.
Great place good people good history well preserved and taken care of properly.
Gorgeous views, easy to catching-you're- breath hikes, and the entire family can come.
Stopped here on our family vacation to Oregon coast in July 2018. It is a beautiful short walk from the parking lot to the lighthouse. It is fascinating to take a step back in time and see what life was like several years ago. Loved the tour of the bed and breakfast. A beautiful lighthouse to see when traveling the Oregon Coast.
Brief stop heading North to Seattle. Photographic vistas abound.
This location has easy parking access with trailer parking, and easy return to the highway north or south. There is a public bathroom at the lower parking lot and a portable near the lighthouse (.5 mile walk), the path itself is a short packed gravel walk with a bit of an incline. As for access to the waters edge from your car, it is a short walk as well. Walking to the lighthouse could be considered steep. I would not want to push a wheelchair up the incline even though it may be possible to do so. Overall this is a good place to just stretch your legs and see some great views or do a little more adventuring into your surroundings. If heading towards Florence with the sun setting there is a turnout for good pictures on the way back with miles of dunes to photograph - don't miss it! If this review helped you please give me a thumbs up - enjoy the Oregon coast
Visited the assistant keepers house, and the tour was lovely. Then hiked from the lighthouse to Hobbit Beach through a beautiful forest. The hike's difficulty is moderate due to the elevation gain but it's gorgeous, and absolutely worth it.
Wonderful. A nice hike, informative tours, helpful guides, awesome view.
