Lighthouse tours are available 7 days a week from 11:00 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather and staff permitting. Tour groups, school groups, and other groups please e-mail us to schedule a tour at Heceta.email@example.com.
Restoration of the tower finished in mid-2013. Because of ongoing maintenance and inspections of the upper levels, tours currently only cover the outdoor area around the base of the lighthouse, and the ground floor of the tower. A new schedule will be announced when tours of the upper levels resume.
Head Lighthouse State Scenic Viewpoint is located in a cove at the mouth of Cape Creek. There are picnic tables sheltered from the wind and a great view of the ocean. A short trail leads to the historic Heceta Head lighthouse and assistant keeper's house.
Heceta Head trail is part of a 7-mile network. Trails of varying difficulty feature beach and wildlife viewing areas. Wildlife refuge islands feature a view of common murres, cormorants, gulls, and other bird nesting areas. Sea lions and whales can be seen from the beach and cliff-top lighthouse.
