Natural Bridges & Coastal Pine ForestsThe brochure for the park mentions a short walk to a wooden viewing platform for some natural bridges. We arrived about 15 minutes prior to sunset and were determined to watch the colors fade over the bridges. In our haste to make it to the viewing platform in time we plummeted down the trail, running straight over the viewing platform (which seemed more like a bridge), and down the Oregon Coast Trail to the very edge of a cliff with beautiful views.
We watched the sky shift through different shades of pink and orange before trekking back up the overgrown trail and catching a glimpse of the natural bridges from the bridge-like viewing platform.
