Three Arch Rocks National Wildlife Refuge
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.

The first National Wildlife Refuge west of the Mississippi River, Three Arch Rocks National Wildlife Refuge spans nine islands off the Coast, with 15 acres of wilderness supporting breeding seabird colonies. It has the only pupping site of Stellar sea lions on the North Coast.
The islands are closed to public access, however, the refuge is a favorite among photographers — from afar.
