Hug Point

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Hug Point is a noteworthy destination for a number or reasons. The highlight for history buffs is abandoned section of very early roadway that's visible at low tide. This early road was the only road linking Cannon Beach with Arch cape prior to the 1940 construction of the Pacific Coast Highway.
