Stopped here during our trip along the 101. Yes, there are many places to stop and tons of great views. Battle Rock sets itself apart from many others by its easy access, parking and walking trails.

This spot has paved pull in parking facing the ocean, a stone wall to sit on, paved walking trails winding through a sloping lawn down to the beach. To the south Humbug Mt. rises 1800 feet straight out of the ocean. There's a manned visitor center to answer any questions that you might have and they have a huge selection of information and maps for anywhere you might want to visit up and down the coast and of course they have restrooms as well. This is also very good spot to watch gray whales feed and if your lucky you might see an orca. The beach is a good spot to find driftwood and seashells and the lawn is perfect for a picnic. One of the best stopping spots on the entire coast.

Driving south along Highway 101- we saw a sign on a hill, spelled out in the asphalt that there was an Ocean View ahead. When the sign says go- you go! Found easy parking a gorgeous views southward along the Pacific Ocean. Great quick stop!

This is a great stopping place. I was very tempted to have a cocktail at Redfish Restaurant and just get mesmerized by the view but instead I took a walk to the beach. It was a beautiful, warm day however locals tell me this place gets a lot of wind and the view is so expansive that it is a great spot for whale watching.

This is a nice little park off 101 in port orford. You can sit at the benches at the parking lot, take a short hike town to the beach, or be adventurous and take a moderate hike up on battle rock. I've done it in dress shoes it's not that bad, but it's not easy either. The weather is a big factor in whether it's worth stopping. If you want to eat there is a fine dining restaurant just north of the park (redfish) and a few local cafes across the highway
