Secret Beach Trail is a 1.4 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Brookings, OR that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until October.
Didn't have time to make it all the way down because we got there too late, but ended up at a lookout peninsula that was absolutely gorgeous. Would definitely come back earlier in the day to go all the way down to the beach!
Three ways to get there....straight in short or you can go in from the north or south.
There are two ways to get here. the long way is parking at thunder cove right after the actual pinpoint for this trail. The other is a much shorter but steeper trail it is in a small parking area that isn't easy to turn into with a guardrail on the left side of the road. there is a space that is hidden from the road like a hobbit hole. Trail is quick. beaches are awesome. Not the best for tidepooling but I would visit again for sure.
Hiked the longer trail from the Thunder Bay turnout. Then missed the trail sign marking the junction. Other hikers came down another trail from a parking area north of Thunder Bay trailhead. Stunning beach with a waterfall
Hard to find the trailhead but if you are headend north on 101 it is shortly after the natural bridges viewpoint. Look for the guardrail on the left side to end and there is a small parting area right at the end of the guardrail. There are two trails one right and one left of the lot. Take the one on the right and it is a short hike down to the beach. Plan to go at low tide and you can reach all three beaches. Waterfalls, sea stacks and just stunning views!
Couldn't find the trail head!! GPS took us to Natural Bridges lookout which didn't show a secret trail option. A trail was blocked by a sign preventing us from going through suggesting we would damage wildlife. How do you reach this trailhead?
Beautiful views at any tide, low or high
The hike is strait down the hill to the beach. Not much of a hike but one of the coolest beaches to explore. Massive waves at high tide. Can teach 3rd beach at low tide. I'll be going here every time I'm in Brookings!
