Path To Chapman Point


This is one of my favorite paths to one of my favorite beaches. It cuts through the European Beach Grass that was planted decades ago to stabilize the dunes up and down the Oregon Coast. It’s a great beach to walk, dig razor clams, bird watch etc. The rocks are nesting islands for multiple species of sea birds, hence the name of the surf spot on the south side of these rocks, “Guanos”.

While management is necessary, someone (with permission I’m sure) bulldozed the soul out of this lovely beach access recently. It’s now 50 feet wide straight to the tideline. Hopefully, within a few years it will be back to its beautiful meandering nature once again.
