Cleft of the Rock lighthouse is placed on a bluff near Cape Perpetua, and attached to the home of its former keeper, Jim Gibbs. This lighthouse is somewhat mysterious, as it can only be seen from highway 101. It was also originally designed as a private navigation device for the United States Coastguard.
