Sisters Rock: Discover little-known coastal gem


The Pilot/Bill Schlichting

Between the Euchre Creek and Prehistoric Gardens, 13 miles north of Gold Beach, travelers are likely to see a headland with two monumental rocks connected to the mainland.

A third rock, surrounded by pounding surf, stands nearby. These three monoliths are known as Sisters Rocks. The land is known as Sisters Rocks State Park, an obscure park marked with an Oregon State Park shield along Highway 101. There is no mention that the park has a name.

Sisters Rocks State Park is a place of discovery. Access is provided either by a pullout along the highway and finding an Oregon Coast Trail marker, or finding a gated road.
