Here the rugged Siskiyou Mountains push out into the sea in a series of dramatic rocky headlands and offshore sea stacks.

Many of our 80 miles of undeveloped coastline are dedicated as State Parks and all of our offshore islands are part of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge.

The mighty Rogue River cuts through the Siskiyous and the Wild Rogue River Wilderness Area to pour into the Pacific Ocean. The Wild and Scenic Illinois River slides through a deep canyon in the Kalmiopsis Wilderness to merge with the Rogue.

The Wild and Scenic Chetco and North Fork Smith Rivers originate in the Kalmiopsis Wilderness. The Grassy Knob Wilderness Area is skirted by the Wild and Scenic Elk River and the exciting Sixes River.

Those rivers also flank Cape Blanco, home to the westernmost lighthouse in Oregon.
Our coastal rainforests are among the most diverse in the nation. The rainforests, scores of rivers and streams, and exciting coastal ecosystems support a fantastic variety of birds, mammals, fish, and amphibians. Many plant and animal species are endemic to this region.

Our intentions with this site are to entice you to Oregon's Siskiyou Coast. To do that, we have included a number of photos of the special places and experiences here. Click on any photo to see a larger version. Because of the number of photos, this site may load more slowly than some others. We hope you'll feel it is worthwhile when you see the photos.
