great ride, lots of sights and smells. enjoyed long beach when we finished.

We are absolute beginners, both having lost a lot of weight and still working on upping our activity level. I don't know if I would rate this hike "easy" for middle-aged duffers like us, but it was easy enough. We didn't make it all the way to MacKenzie Head, but that was because of mud on the trail, not because it had gotten too tough for us. I would do it again. But bring bug repellent! The mosquitos were nasty.

BEAUTIFUL!!! We loved it, and found it to be our favorite trail so far.. nice rolling hills along Ocean front scenery with smooth riding..you come along many photo worthy locstions..we went to the light house, which is up higher into the hills, and over nice walking bridges.. even fun net coming back down:) about a 16 mile loop.. DO IT!

Beautifully paved biking and walking path that winds and rolls through the dune grasses and low woodlands. The ocean waves are constantly in view, and we saw lots of birds and a couple of deer. We started at the Beard's Hollow trailhead and rode easily for about 45 minutes, encountering only a few other cyclists and walkers, and stopping for a delicious lunch break at the Pickled Fish Restaurant at the Adrift Hotel in Long Beach. Perfect relaxing day. Will definitely do again.

I ran the whole trail from Breakers all the way up to the lighthouse and back last weekend. It was a beautiful sunny day with picturesque views. I look forward to running the trail again and again and again. Very easy run with a little bit of a challenge heading up to the lighthouse and lookout at the Cape. Highly recommended!!!

Very fun hike! Took my 2 and 4 year old it took us a little over two hours but all in all was a great hike! we got sprinkled on at the end which felt amazing as it was a difficult hike back up the hill.

Turn at the Farmhouse and drive past tang go the the boat ramp. There are two other trails that connect and make a large loop.

Beautiful trail perhaps a bit monotonous. Really well maintained cement trail. You can see the beach only as you get closer to ilwaca.

It was the best bike path I've ever ridden and it was more fun riding back becuz it was all downhill.

on Black Lake

Very fun! We thought at first we were supposed to start at the picnic tables. That's not it at all. Go around the north side and past the farm house to the east side to park. That's the trailhead with a map. This is the first time we've used this app and didn't record the walk, by mistake. Do we have to rewalk it? We saw salamanders, mushrooms and a tree growing out of another tree. Today is 12-19-2015.

I will not call it hike. It is more like a path around lake. Good for quick stop and run....

The Northend trail head is located on 26th just off of Pacific Hwy. just follow the Doscovery Trail sign then the Monument Tree sign. Sort of misleading since it's right beside an apartment complex. The trail is very well maintained! No tree roots, dog or horse manure when we were there. We even sighted a lone deer then later a mama deer with her 2 baby fawns. This trail does connect over to Cape Disappointment State Park. I brought my mountain bike for this trip but will definitely come back with my road bike!!

Makes me wish I had a bike!

Loved this area. Spent most of the day checking it out. Bike trails, hiking, 2 light houses. Interpretive center. History of the fort/battery. We need to come back with the kid and dogs. Beautiful day to hike. Lots of different types of mushrooms.

This trail offers well maintained trails, easy access to the beach, and mostly paved trail. The trail was also very easy with little steep inclines. At the trail head there was a bridged area that you can walk on, that could have been at once a pond, but now it contains a lot of deer, and possibly coyote pawprints. I would reccommend this trail to anyone looking for an easy, but accessible, and achieving hike.

We don't usually car camp, but I have to say we liked this place so much we stayed an extra night to finish all the trails in the area. Could not believe how many salamandars there were. Had to be very careful where we stepped. Awesome woodfire pizza at the store next to the entrance. Definitely coming back again in April. The park hasn't fully opened so you are able to really appreciate the place without crowds.

I ride this trail on a regular basis now that I moved to Long Beach. Love the ride to Beards Hollow. The ride is flat and the views are supreme, especially Beards Hollow. I posted Picture so you can see for yourself. For longer rides you can ride on to Discovery park and visit the light houses and continue out to Illwaco at the port for nice views of the Columbia. I moved here because of these rides.

This is a great bike ride with stunning views of Cape Disappointment, the Long Beach Peninsula and Cape Disappointment. The path is very well maintained.
