When I last wrote about my trip along the Three Capes Scenic Route. It ended with me barely catching sunset at the third and final cape, Cape Kiwanda. This time, I went back to Cape Kiwanda and devoted an entire day to exploring and enjoying some of the local fare.
Touted as one of the best scenic drives along the Oregon coast, the Three Capes Scenic Route offers not only spectacular views from the road, but also stunning parks along the shores edge.
Located off of US 101, about 13 mi. South West of Coos Bay is Shore Acres State Park.
Most of the coastline consists of sandstone cliffs with the occasional secluded cove tucked in. One of the best things about this State Park is that there is a trail that skirts along the cliffs edge, enabling you to get some rather remarkable views. Unfortunately, our day was a little rainy, but we still made the best of it.
