False lily-of-the-valley (Maianthemum dilatatum), Communications Hill (bobcat)


This hill at the east end of the Yaquina Headland offers expansive views north to Otter Crest and south along Agate, Nye, and Newport Beaches to the mouth of Yaquina Bay. Part of the hike along the gravel road to the summit is through shady Sitka spruce and shore pine woods. At the top of the hill is a Coast Guard communications facility.
