Battle Rock Wayside Park
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

Battle Rock Park is named for the historic battle that took place at Battle Rock where the Qua-to-mah Native Americans fought Captain William Tichenor's men in 1851.
Now, visitors can hike the hill to the top of the Rock and see one of the most spectacular views on the coast, which often includes resident Gray whales that like to hang out in the cove area.
