Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach

Published on October 28, 2014

Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach Haystack Rock Hallmark Resort & Spa Cannon Beach is adjacent to Haystack Rock. Our guestrooms’ direct viewing of “The Rock” definitely incorporates the essence of awe and beauty. Images of Haystack Rock are probably the most photographed natural object in the state.   Rising 235 feet above sea level, this large monolithic basalt rock is flanked to the south by two tall, narrow rocks called the Needles. 10,000 years ago, Haystack Rock stretched into the sea as part of Tillamook Head and today’s remnants are the result of a 17 million year process. Haystack Rock is a protected sanctuary for birds and marine creatures. “The Rock” provides a breeding home for four species of sea birds — Tufted Puffins, Pelagic Cormorants, Pigeon Guillemots, and Western Gulls. Tidepools, or “Marine Gardens,” at The Rock’s base are federally protected and it is crucial for us all to use awareness and caution while viewing or exploring this diverse and fragile ecosystem of rocky intertidal life. For further information on Haystack Rock, click here.   Awareness Program This program was developed to preserve the fragile ecosystem as well as provide an interpretive program designed to educate the public about various aspects of Haystack Rock. HRAP is a volunteer citizen involvement program and conducts educational activities on the beach during daytime low tides from May to September.

Visit the Seaside Aquarium to feed the seals, or touch sea creatures at the Discovery Center. Downtown offers shopping with a variety of apparel, jewelry, arts, collectibles, home decor, specialty gifts, and souvenirs. Be sure to stop by the Carousel Mall featuring unique shops surrounding a full-size fully operational classic old-fashioned carousel. The carousel horses are replicas of vintage horses from the early 1900’s. Seaside also boasts the Fun Center Arcade, miniature golf, bumper cars, and Tilt-a-Whirl.
