Whether you walk up to the rock during low tide or just look at it from a distance, you will be glad you took the time to see Mother Nature’s amazing creation. Even in nasty weather, it is worth the stop.

Just a short walk from the main downtown area of Cannon Beach. Haystack rocks are amazing and large. Great location to take pictures of the Haystack Rocks.
