Hike to the top of this coastal peak for terrific views over the Paciific. This tall peak on the northern Oregon coast has a great views out over the pacific from a viewpoint at the top.
Good hike great view. The trail wasn't too crowded but the view point was
We hiked this from Necarney Creek and crossed 101 from Cape Falcon making this a 9 mile out and back. There were challenging sections on the west side of 101 but nothing too difficult. Once we headed up the trail east of 101, the trail was in the open where Oregon Coast underbrush took over. The first few switchbacks had the brush cut back, but the next few didn't. I don't even remotely enjoy hiking through brush over my head, having to swim through, so I considered turning back. I'm glad I didn't, because the trail opened up as soon as we got into the timber. The trial through the timber was typical coast trail - lots of tall trees, ferns and berry bushes. The trail was well trodden with a few trees fallen across. A good mix of steady grades with a few steep sections. The view from the top was pretty spectacular, overlooking Manzanita.
Awesome view, somewhat tough uphill climb
