The Manhattan Beach walk is an out-and-back adventure that begins on the wide strand of Rockaway Beach. Walking north, you will cross Spring Creek to the quieter Nedonna Beach and to breathtaking views of the Coast Range. As you reach the mouth of the Nehalem, look for harbor seals.
The Cape Meares State Scenic Viewpoint is situated on a headland 200 feet above the Pacific and provides an excellent view of the largest colony of nesting common murres (the site is one of the most populous colonies of nesting sea birds on the continent). Bald eagles and a peregrine falcon have also been known to nest near here.
