Adventuring: Sunset Bay

If anyone has been to the coast off of Charleston, Oregon they have been to Sunset Bay. I can also add, anyone who has grown up in Coos Bay/North Bend has been to Sunset Bay. It is an easy to find, beautiful place that offers rock exploring, tide-pools, sand volley-ball, a camp ground, and a bit more. What I love about it is that it is a great starting point to a maze of connecting trails that extend all the way to the Cape Arago State Park. For the Sunset Bay Loop start at the trail head by the southern bathrooms. There is a map at this spot, so it's a great place to collect yourself and decide just where you will head to. Continue on this trail following it up and around the cliffs, ending back on the road at the entrance to Norton Gulch. To complete this "loop" just retrace your steps back to your car. I know, it's not really a loop, but with all the little side trails to explore it feels like one!
