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.

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!

Great for an early morning hike. Pretty crowded late morning - but a beautiful hike. Well worth your time.

This was our first hike on the coast and second hike of the year. We loved it. Tiny view spots for the ocean and hiking while listening to the waves crash was so peaceful! Only thing that was not so great were the left over bags of dog waste and someone that forgotten to grab bags completely! ;P

We would do it again :)

If you like bushwhacking and a serious lack of viewpoints, then go for it. We were disappointed. I found nearby neahkanhie mountain to be much more rewarding. Hug Point is also great if you want less of a work out and more of a stroll to really cool beach spots.

Took this trail with the wife and throughly enjoyed the view at the end of the hike. Easy trail!!
