Picture this: Twelve miles of forested park. A rocky, rugged coastline dotted by secret sandy beaches. Seaside prairies. Three-hundred-year-old Sitka spruce trees.
If heaven is called Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor, then we have found it.
Located on the southern Oregon coast along the so-called “Banana Belt,” Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor is rife with natural wonders. Hikers can explore 27 miles of the Oregon Coast Trail, daredevils can attempt a swim under the gorgeous Arch Rock, and nature lovers can spy seals and whales from the shore.
This quiet, untouched park is completely otherworldly.
