Coquille River Lighthouse
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. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.
Coquille River lighthouse was first built in Bullards Beach State Park in 1891, and later renovated in 1976. Mariners were also guided across dangerous bars with the help of this lighthouse. Parks and beaches surrounding the lighthouse are open to the public, in addition to the tower itself.
