Cape Blanco Lighthouse sits on the most western point of Oregon.  Built in 1870, the lighthouse has survived years of howling winds that continually blow across the bluff.  Parking is available at the lighthouse, but we chose a 4.5 mile loop trail that led us across the beach, then back along the forested cliffs.
