Hubbard Creek

From Graveyard Point in Port Orford, a gorgeous crescent beach stretches east and south for five miles to the base of Humbug Mountain.  The first two miles are studded with sea stacks, on the beach and offshore.  Just past the last rocky spire, wide Hubbard Creek rushes across the beach.  It turns out there is a beach access point  164  here, near milepost 302 on US 101 just at the edge of Port Orford heading south-east.  Park in the turn-out areas just east of the highway bridge; a trail leads under the bridge to the beach.

This is a nice point to look back on the beach toward Port Orford and its headlands, the sea stacks nearby, out across the water to the blue Pacific horizon, and southward to Redfish Rocks and Humbug Mountain.  The wind here is relatively tame by the standards of the southern Oregon coast, at least in the summer, sheltered from the prevailing wind from the north by the fact that the beach here looks more south than west.

From Hubbard Creek, you can walk the beach northwest to Port Orford and Battle Rock, or southeast to Rocky Point.
