Overview

Cape Sebastian ... the very name invokes images of early Spanish explorers and long journeys. The cape was named in honor of Saint Sebastian in 1603 by the Spanish navigator Sebastian Vizcaino. The most striking features of this park are its two parking vistas. The parking lots are over 200 feet above sea level. At the south parking vista, you can see up to 43 miles to the north with Humbug Mountain filling the view. Looking south, you can see nearly 50 miles toward Crescent City, California and Point Saint George Lighthouse. A deep forest of Sitka spruce covers most of the park and a 1.5 mile walking trail takes you out to the cape. If you're lucky, the trail will give you a chance to enjoy awe-inspiring views of the gray whales on their migration.
