If you are in the area to view Haystack Rock don’t pass it up.....especially if it’s raining! Our visit was on a cold rainy day and the rocks didn’t disappoint. Great wave activity and height which crashed into rocks! Very fun to visit!

A perfect day especially for January. The tide was going low, no wind and moderate temperature. One of the most spectacular sunsets I have seen and I have been there many, many times. It was a wonderful place and time to start the new year.

Cannon beach is a must see! January 12 was is the high 50’s with no wind. We walked 2 miles and took great pictures of Haystack. Every visit you realize how impressive Haystack is.

We travelled from Texas and were not disappointed. There was easy beach access and we enjoyed the walk and the beautiful landscape.

This is the one that you see featured in commercials, or on your computer desktop wallpaper. It's really something to see in person! You can get pretty close from the beach, depending on the tides.

You can no longer visit the Goonies' house in Astoria. There are no trespassing signs in the driveway. I read another review that said if you ride down a side street on a bike you can somewhat see it.
