Stairs
At Sea Lion Caves
As A Nature Theme Park Location
Florence, Oregon

A 1,500-foot (460 meter) long trail was excavated by hand into the face of the cliff. At the bottom, a 135 step wooden tower was extended down to the north entrance of the caves. Despite the difficulty and danger of the construction, the trail and stairs provided safe access for visitors and the Sea Lion Caves opened to the public in August 1932. [from wikipedia]
