Blacklock Point

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Clifftop view of Tower Rock and Blacklock Point (bobcat)


Blacklock Point's dark crumbling promontory juts out to a series of rocks and stacks, the most impressive being Tower Rock. Views extend to the large sea stacks of Castle Rock and Gull Rock as well as the Sixes River Mouth and Cape Blanco, Oregon’s westernmost point. A sketchy user trail leads along the spine of Blacklock Point to offer a view north along the line of cliffs that leads to Floras Lake.

According to McArthur and McArthur's Oregon Geographic Names, John Blacklock was a Scottish settler who lived near the point. Blacklock died in 1905 in Bandon.
