Elk River Mouth

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

View south to the Elk River, Port Orford Heads, and Humbug Mountain (bobcat)


The mouth of the pristine Elk River is south of Cape Blanco. Over the course of half a century, the river has wandered north along the beach for a mile from its original egress point and is now separated from the ocean by Tituna Spit. The river is fordable here for Oregon Coast Trail hikers in the summer. It’s a long flat sandy stretch down to Port Orford.
