Directions: The lighthouse is located 13 miles north of Florence, Oregon. There are many signs on Highway 101 marking the area.
From the parking area get on the trail that winds up to the lighthouse. You will first pass Heceta House and then the trail takes you to the lighthouse. Continue on a narrow dirt path as it switches back up to a really nice viewpoint. You can walk around the base of the lighthouse as well.
Once back down at the parking area head off to the beach and go to the right. There are nice tide pools where we saw quite a few starfish.
