Grave Point

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Grave Point is part of the Face Rock State Scenic Viewpoint. A staircase leads down the steep bluff to the beach from the parking area, and a short loop trail offers views up and down the beach as well as offshore to various sea stacks and the well-known Face Rock. Coquille legend holds that the formation is the fossilized visage of Ewauna, the daughter of a tribal chief (See the Legend of Face Rock). All of the offshore islets are part of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge as well as the Oregon Islands Wilderness.
