Hunter Creek Turnout

A mile south and uphill from Kissing Rock is a highway turnout on the south side of Gold Beach, Oregon, near milepost 331 on US 101.  A highway turn-out parking area offers a view out over the Pacific Ocean.

Hunter Creek Turnout has been assigned  180  in Oregon's system of numbered beach access points.  I found this curious, because there is no obvious beach access here.  A steep and brush-covered bank leads down the coastal bluff to the sandy beach, but there is no trail that I saw.  A determined person could get from the turnout to the beach, or climb from the beach to the turnout, but this is the most un-beach-access-like of Oregon's numbered beach access points that I've seen.
