Three Arch Rocks
     Three Arch Rocks is actually a National Wildlife Refuge. It is located on the north Oregon Coast near the junction of US 101 and State Rt. 6. The Refuge is home to Oregonís largest breeding colony of Tufted Puffins and also a large breeding colony of Murre. The Rocks themselves are closed to the public, but a good viewpoint is from the Cape Meares State Scenic Viewpoint located on a headland 200 ft. above the ocean. The path from the parking lot descends to an 1890s lighthouse and also provides views of the sea arches.
