Nehalem Spit Trail is a 5 mile out and back trail located near Rockaway Beach, OR. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking.
Nice little hike out to nehalem spit. The second time we went we saw seals. Lots of wild flowers and a nice break from the breezy beach.
This works well if you hike out on the beach the join the trail on the end if the spit for the return, to avoid walking into the wind and also for contrasting landscape. Very quiet, I only saw some folks out on horseback.
