Ghost Forest

Winter is the only time you are likely to glimpse the Neskowin Ghost Forest. The petrified remains of roughly 100 Sitka spruce trees are more than 2,000 years old and only visible during the lowest December, January and February tides. In their prime, the trees would have been enormous, towering 150 to 200 feet tall. Experts say the spruces were initially buried as a result of a massive earthquake plunging higher ground to below sea level. A subsequent tsunami most likely then enveloped the trees in sand.
