Great hike not too hard and the bridge is amazing

on Cascade Head Trail

1 day ago

Beautiful!! Totally worth it!

Beautiful!!

Easy gradual hike. Flies were annoying but the bridge was worth it. Parking was full on a Monday afternoon.

Great hike amazing waterfall at the end.

Great hike, up hill on The way back was rough but well worth the hike. You can heat sea lions from
The look out!

We loved this trail! It was muddy, and very misty, it felt like we were in a magical world. I was just waiting for elves or Ewoks to come jumping out. The mist cleared at the end of the trail for some beautiful views. Also saw some seals along the cliffs.

Great hike overall. Arrive early on weekends in summer months since parking lot fills quickly early. Porta-potties, no running water. Moderate hike took me just under and hour to reach the top. You can hear the ocean for most of the hike. First third is wide, well-manicured easy trail that is mostly a decent. At about the one-mile marker, there is a nice view. If you're traveling with differently-abled people in your party or small children, you may want to consider this one mile marker enough. The second third of the trail was wet and muddy (in Aug.) and you have to traverse over huge tree roots. it's moderately treacherous. The last third was drier and and easy hike to the lookout. The lookout had a handful of people when I arrived at approximately 11 am. The views were great as expected.

My boyfriend and I went on this hike today for the first time. Now, this may be easy for others who are more physically fit and active lol.. but for people like my boyfriend and I who are overweight have had a hard time coming back. It was the longest we’ve ever hiked but man was it beautiful! Totally worth it. I saw a few centipedes, butterfly’s, squirrels, and heard some seals. We are now very sore and probably won’t go back for awhile lol at least until we lose some pounds. This isn’t for beginner hikers! I repeat! Not a beginners trail! Unless my boyfriend and I just suck lol. We made it though! Woohoo!

Suspension bridge, waterfall, dense forest... LOVE!
Elevation gain was about 728 feet combined. Not very steep at all at its "worse." Took my 75 year old father and he did fine for being an inactive person.

Beautiful- moderate hike. We carried a 1 and 3 year old plus lots of extras and it was great- not easy but doable. Lots of roots and some mud but easy to maneuver. Views are stunning and worth the work. Definitely on our list of hikes worth repeating

Beautiful!

Honestly.... ugh. My husband clocked in 6 miles on his Fitbit. 6 miles to look at the Oregon Coast just wasn't worth it to me.

Great family hike filled with a ton of nature (we spotted a snake, chipmunk, millipede & an assortment of birds). The suspension bridge at the end is the highlight and a pretty neat experience.

Great trail that offers fantastic views, birds, plants, and can be done easily in a light paced morning. Trail is very well developed and signed. Probably one of the more we’ll marked trails I’ve been on. I wanted to move fast for a good cardio workout but this trail begs you to move slow. For the views and for the slightly technical and wet trail. Once you get out of the plants the trail dries up. If you go later in the day, you have s better chance of no fog covering, however I enjoyed the fog.

Do not go right as one of the recent reviews states!!! The cove is to the left from the clearing. We followed someone’s comment instead of trusting our instincts and got lost.

A nice, easy, well maintained trail if you want a break from beach activities on coast. Waterfall and suspension bridge at end of trail very unique and there is some good rock scrambling for the kids (optional at end of hike). Trail is well graded so really no serious uphill hiking. Access road to trailhead is long and narrow - but paved, so a big plus - a nice drive through forest.

Avid hikers--this is an easier trail. If you are not use to uneven terrain, it may be more difficult. Really enjoyed the views towards the top.

FYI- go to the restroom before you start hiking. the port-a-potties are gag-inducing.

This is a great family trail. I took my daughter and her best friend, both 14. We had a great time. The trail is well taken care of and it is a very peaceful hike. The bridge is great! Perfect multiple view photo opportunity for subjects or the falls. When you make it down to the bottom be sure to explore. It is worth climbing around and getting your feet wet. Depending on your timing you can walk right up next to the bottom of the falls and get soaked in a heartbeat by the spray.

As a follow up to Katie Holts review yesterday. We went at 10am and there was maybe 5 bees the whole way. So don’t let that review deter you unless you are going later in the day maybe?

This is a wonderful hike. Took a 4,6 and 9 year old. The 4 year old was whining pretty good most of the way back but we made it.

The key is when you get to the meadow at the end of the trail (overlooking the ocean), sort of bear right and try to find the big tree down the hill along the cliff. It's tempting to go toward the trees on the left, but stick to the right. That's where the viewpoint of the cove/waterfall is. But it's not marked and the trail splits and re-splits all through the hay in the meadow, so it's very unclear where to go. I think the actual trail ends at the top of the meadow, so add another .6 miles (.3 down the hill and back) if you're going to the viewpoint (which you should...it's the entire payoff of the hike). Overall it's a pretty laid-back hike, but the uphill at the end is the tough part.

This trail is well maintained and provides a beautiful view of the Oregon coast and back inland. Members of the group maintaining the trails were present and friendly in chatting with the day hikers. The top was also a great place to layout for a bit, have a picnic, or even have a moment of meditation. All in all, a wonderful Oregon coast trail.

This review would be perfect except for one thing... bees! Thankfully I’m not allergic, because I was stung TWICE while on the trail. We hiked with our dog and never left the trail once or disturbed any nature, however for the majority of our hike in and about half the hike back out we were followed by numerous vengeful bees. I was stung twice, once on each leg. Thankfully my wife and dog were not stung but that doesn’t mean they weren’t also at the mercy of these evil bees!

This hike is very pretty, the road in and trail are both well maintained, and the high bridge and waterfall at the end are both worth it. However, please take this with as much caution as possible, FOR THOSE ALLERGIC TO BEES: Do Not Hike This Trail! Even with an EpiPen, these bees will not leave you alone!

Won’t be returning anytime soon.

on Cape Lookout Trail

Nice hike, nice views. Wear decent shoes/boots because there are lots of tree roots and some muddy areas. Gets busy in the afternoon. There are some areas with steep drop off next to the trail. Be very careful if you bring children.

Beautiful views, and if you get there early enough to have the trail to yourself, you can enjoy the sound of the waves lapping at both sides of the cape. Moderate is a fair assessment - it's not overly strenuous, but there are a lot of roots and a stretch with lots of mud. There were definitely a fair number of people we passed that didn't look prepared for those portions. Also worth noting if you're taking along anyone who doesn't hike much - it finishes with a long (but gradual) uphill, so the toughest part comes after the visual reward.

Awesome hike trail for a family. We brought our 13 yr old, 8 yr old and 7 yr old to do the hike and they enjoyed it. The suspension bridge was next to the waterfall, which was at the end of the trail. We did the whole hike just under 2hrs (round trip). Great views all around. Paths were well maintained and easy to follow.

Amazing views!
