Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area is a 0.8 mile out and back trail located near Cloverdale, OR and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible year-round.
Great area to spend the day at with tide pools and the trek up the sand dunes for amazing views. Lots of disrespectful people who don't obey signs, having park rangers run back and forth all day telling people to get behind the fence. If you go, just be mindful of that and don't ruin for the rest of us by just "wanting to get that picture". There are plenty of other places that aren't danger zones
good beach ok walk
This place is amazing with incredible views throughout the entire trail. Tonight along the beach walk to the south of Cape Kiwanda was many "by-the-wind-sailors" or Velella velella's
Beautiful! You can reward yourself with a beer from Pelican when you're through!
Challenging but beautiful
Absolutely beautiful! Better than any pictures!

Did this with my daughter. Haha. Fun going up. A good workout!
Beautiful! Many different terrains. Once up the main "dune," the difficulty drops. Bring the camera/phone and maybe a picnic, so picturesque.
This will get your heart rate up. Okay, says it is only a mile. But we are also talking STRAIGHT up pure SAND. This is just a giant sand dune in PC.
