Nehalem Spit Trail is a 5.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Rockaway Beach, Oregon that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until November.
Incredible views during the winter! highly recommend seeing the sunset on the beach. We walked out along the spit trail and back along the beach to the right.
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.
