Beach View Of North Head Lighthouse
Photograph - Photo
Benson Beach extends from two miles from the North Jetty to the rocky base of the North Head Lighthouse. The 1/4-mile-long Benson Beach Trail goes from the end of the North Jetty Road and ends at a viewing platform overlooking the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean. On February 20, 1920, the American steamer the Admiral Benson grounded on Peacock Spit in the fog and broke up after several days of wind. The wreck today still snags fishing lines off the coast of today's Benson Beach.
