The Different Views of Haystack Rock

Haystack Rock, at 235 feet high, is the third largest coastal monolith in the world. Haystack Rock is protected as part of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge as well as a designated National Wilderness Area. This 235 foot tall basalt monolith is located on the scenic Cannon Beach on the northern Oregon coast. The area below the rock is referred to as a Marine Garden.

As one of the Oregon Coast's most popular destinations, Haystack Rock provides amazing opportunities to see all kinds of marine wildlife in their natural habitat.

Haystack Rock is a vital habitat for an abundance of seabirds. Here there over 2,000 seabirds that nest on Haystack Rock each year.

Climbing is not allowed anywhere on Haystack Rock, not only for the safety of the birds but for your safety as well!
