Neahkahnie Mystery, Romance and Adventure
The Arch Cape Inn and Retreat sits nestled at the base of Neahkahnie Mountain.
Regarding Neahkahnie Mountain, there is a lot more to it than meets the eye.
In addition to being one of the most spectacular volcanic outcroppings on the coast, looming up through one of the World’s Only Temperate Rain Forests, local legend has it that in the 1600’s a Spanish galleon came to the area, carrying murder, treasure and mystery. According to this lore, a chest of gold was buried somewhere on the Mountain. People still hunt for it until this day.

Ten miles south of Cannon Beach, you will find one of the best places to experience the beauty and variety of the Oregon coast: Oswald West State Park. Take a day hike Neahkahnie Mountain or simply stroll through the old-growth forest trail which leads straight to the beach.
Located just off Highway 101, choose from any of three parking lots which are only a quarter mile from the sandy shores of the Oregon coast. Grab a map before heading out as there are many paths through the forest (but don’t worry, the main paths are marked) and enjoy the diversity that this state park has to offer. From day hikes to short walks, the Oswald West State Park has something for every skill level.
