Hug Point State Park

March 2, 2012 by staff 

Hug Point State Park, A wagon and team cross Hug Point around the turn of the 20th century. The road, which is still there, was chipped into the rocky headland so wagons, stagecoaches and cars would not have to drive out into the surf to get around the point.
Hug Point State Recreation Site is a state park on the northern Oregon Coast in the U.S. state of Oregon. Administered by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, the park is open to the public and is fee-free. Amenities at the park, which is 5 miles (8.0 km) south of Cannon Beach along U.S. Route 101, include picnicking, fishing, and a Pacific Ocean beach.

Hug Point, the cape for which it is named, lies in the park.

Late 19th century stagecoaches that used the beach as a highway “had to ‘hug’ this particular point even at low tide to get around it”, hence the name Hug Point.
