Cape Falcon Trail is a 4.9 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Nehalem, Oregon that offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from May until October.
Easy hike with great views of the ocean. Can get muddy in some areas. Recommend for someone wanting a nice stroll with great results.
Easy hike with cool views at the end
Wow, what a payoff. Go the extra 100 yards down the hill after the trail line stops. Amazing.
Good view point but people aren't lying about the mud. At least 2.5 miles is spent walking through basically a swamp. Recommend doing this a different time of year
Nice hike thru old growth forest. Easy trail to follow with not much up & down. The only downside was the trail got muddier as we got closer to the Cape. Wonderful view from the cape of the coast. Saw a Bald Eagle in the trees. Not a lot of people on the trail. Weather was sunshine with high clouds and upper 40's in temp. Great hiking weather.
One of my fav hikes yet to date on the coast. great cliff side hike with amazing views north coast and south.
The best views are at the end. The rest is slippery, wet, narrow with lots of shrubs. Saw a lone wolf early in the morning, gladly it was running away.
Great hike, perfect distance for nice Sunday stroll. Approximately 5 miles round trip. Stable terrain and very nice views when the fog lifts.
A pretty hike with an amazing view at the end. Totally worth it.
Easy to slightly moderate climb to top of Cape Falcon. Stopped for lunch at top overlooking view of cape. The views were varied and beautiful all the way. Mossy Old growth forest with tree roots to trip over, creeks to cross over fresh waterfalls that run into ocean. How many places do you see surfers and hikers converge at the end of the day at the parking lot? It was 98 degrees in Portland and 75degrees hiking. Perfect escape. Totally worth the drive.
Nice hike with wonderful trailside views of the ocean as you climb up the cape. The trail has some good scenic diversity as well as the first portion is through a dark temperate rain forest and the second portion through much more open vegetation as you gain elevation. That being said, I had trouble really finding the endpoint of the trail as it seemed to go off in several directions near the top of the cape, none of which really felt right. If time allows, you can take a side trail down to the beach on the hike back down.
Wonderful hike, so many different features!! A little muddy, not recommended to do in flip flops, definitely want to have your footing on the vantage points at the end of the trail!
