Brookings, Oregon

Explore Thunder Rock Cove at Samuel H Boardman State Scenic Corridor

1.5 Miles Total - 400 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Josiah Roe

Unique landforms combine with crashing waves to funnel water and air into dramatic, thunderous eruptions.

One of many magical nooks and crannies to explore all along the Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor, Thunder Rock Cove sits between the iconic (and more popular) Natural Bridges and Secret Beach

The hike to the cover overlook is an easy .75 mile hike down from the Thunder Rock pull-off that is just past the well-marked Natural Bridges turnoff, about 12 miles north of Brookings.

Note that like anywhere on the Oregon Coast, weather conditions can vary wildly, so dress accordingly.
