Place was closed due to tree felling, (9/16/18). It's awesome driving all the way up to a trail and finding out it is closed due to tree felling on a public trail fro Oregon citizens.

Quick walk. Worth seeing the 800 yr old tree from the upper parking lot.

A pretty easy hike through old growth forest with views of the Pacific Ocean. The end point is worth it, only wished we had packed some snacks and wine to enjoy while there. Heading back we also took the short trail down to the beach and watched the surfers with the fog rolling in. Loved it!!

A beautiful trail with great views! The trail is a tad bit challenging with the number of roots crowding the path. Would highly recommend going during the summer time!

Amazing views for a shorter hike.

Loved it! Was worth the 2.5 hour drive

This is our favorite non waterfall trail so far. Not far from Lincoln City this trail takes you through some old growth forest before you emerge into open rolling fields. There are a few plateaus that are perfect for a rest or a picnic. The views are stunning. Take plenty of water as the elevation gain is fantastic. Parking is good and has a few vault toilets.

A well maintained trail with beautiful old growth forest and amazing viewpoints near the top end of the trail. There are lots of roots in the trail so watch your step. The trail does have a steady gradual incline

This was my first time hiking Cape Falcon. It was an easy hike with some stunning views. There were several areas with a lot of roots, so watch your footing. With that in mind, don't forget to look up an enjoy the sights around you. I will definitely hike this again, but only on weekdays. Fewer people and dogs since I bring my four legged sidekick with me everywhere.

love this trail. easy to follow. challenging to do.

Nice hike along the river. Lots of berries & different features. Moderate traffick. Difficult to find at some points. Over all, a nice hike.

Good, steep in places hike with amazing views

Beautiful views! Very busy trail and lots of tree roots to walk over. Inclines were not bad at all. Get there early because the parking gets full.

I hiked this with my husband and my three-year-old dog in August. It was an easy hike, and flat. We chose to start the loop on the bay side. The first 3.5 miles along the bay were on a gravel road. In hot weather this would be difficult for dogs. About the last mile of the gravel road our dog was seeking shade. The rocks were also a little sharp for her paws. She managed. The bay side of the walk was comfortably warm. The ocean side was windy and we used our sweatshirts and wind breakers. The last 4 miles were on the beach and most of the time we were the only ones on the beach. Toward the end we saw a few people. It was beautiful and I would recommend this hike. I’d say it’s more like a long walk (8 miles for us). Bring a lunch and rest on the beach for a bit!

Beautiful! Not very muddy, and what mud was there was firm. Recommend getting here early though, parking filled up fast! Only 3 other cars in the lot when we arrived at 9am, completely full when we left at around 12:30. Bathrooms are past the trailhead, across the street.

Easy hike with plenty to see and hear. Loved walking through the forest and hearing the ocean waves. Great panoramic views from the highest point, and make sure to head to the end of the Cape Falcon trail to view the secluded black sand beach. We got to the trail head at about 8:45 and only started encountering other hikers on the way back, so go early for more quiet time, as this is a popular route with families. My favorite hike on the coast!

View is breathtaking

A little on the easier side, but still really pleasant. By noon it was heavily trafficked.

3.5 out of 5 seems like a fair score.

This is our favorite beach and typically our home base for our Oregon trips. Not too busy, but close enough to lots of other activities as well. So beautiful! Lots of VRBOs in the area. Enjoy the peace and quiet.

This is a nice easy trail to bike on with the family. About half the trail is packed but the second half is sandy beach. We returned the same way we came up to the point. Not a lot of folks on the trail.

Busy place but not to cloudy . Great place to relax :)
