Love this trail! Check it out sometime!

Nice trail. Liked the diversity of forest & beach, we added the out and back to the lighthouse.

Jaw-dropping. Period. To see the point, ignore the “Oregon Coast Trail” left arrow sign and continue straight ahead.

Short(er) hike. Loved seeing people of all ages doing it! Slippery, obviously, so wear good shoes. Great views.

Nice trail through beautiful forest landing you on a pretty stretch of the beach. Watch your step on the roots.

beautiful hike took my 3 children my doggy (leashed) and there are many places to hike and if you need to rest!

Fun hike-lots of flat sections

Beautiful trail!!!! I recommend it. Goes to a very nice beach.

Great view at the bottom. Interesting trail.

Nice views with a little hike down to a beautiful beach. Awesome area...

Not much of a trail but awesome views of an incredibly unusualy reef system that you get a very good look at.... You could stay and take pics of this area all day.

Awesome multi-purpose trail. Access to beach and multiple spots to sit and relax. Kid friendly and the views, epic!

Different types of environments from beach to forrest. Really beautiful.

Spectacular sunset

If hiking Hobbit trail via China Creek & plan on following the All Trails map. Be sure to pull up map directions on phone prior to entering Carl G. Washburne parking lot as no signal. Also the trailhead to China Creek is closed so only portion to the trail is that along the beach. Beach was great but Very Windy & cool. So maybe the hike to Lighthouse would be great alternative. But overall good hike can't wait to once bridge construction is completed.

Fantastic we loved it

Short out and back trail with excellent views. Easy access and sufficient parking.

A little more than i expected. Nice trail but a bit hilly. My knee was not holding up well going down so i had to retreat knowing that if i went all the way down it would be hell on my knee to come back up. I will try this again after i workout my knee more. Pretty trail though.

beautiful half mile in, then a long stroll on the beach before heading back. I'm pretty sure it's the hike back up to the trail head that makes this moderate.

When you walk down the stairs, you have to walk near the «churn» not to see, but to hear the sounds of water in the churn.

Love this kayak trip, saw eagles, otters, beaver and lots of birds

One of the highlights of our vacation! It was a foggy, chilly morning. The sun finally made its debut around noon. Beautiful rocks - the massive ones and the ones that fit in your hand. Thrilled we got to see a few harbor seals playing near the rocks. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy this walk on the beach.

Five stars is for the visitor center and awesome park ranger that we talked to today. He talked to my kids about different trails and animals and what to do if they see a bear. He offered up some suggested hikes which we did. We did part of the Bear Creek Loop then Snaggy Point Lane (not wide and need to navigate through berry bushes) up to Cougar Ridge. The view at the top was nice and had some picnic tables. The trail is a little difficult because you are walking on matted down prickly berry bushes. With long pants and hiking shoes it would be fine. My kids actually really enjoyed the Beaver Creek Loop trail and looking at frogs in the water. In the visitor center they have a list of recent animal sightings. A bear was seen today but not by us! We had a nice time here. Very pretty!

Beautiful place to watch the kelp sway in the waves, listen to the sea lions bark, and watch the sunset.

Beautiful little hike the beach and tidepools.

Nice hike down to the beach.

It is a nice hike that the whole family can enjoy.

Nice views... Did several other little trails as well.

Not a bad walk, but not terribly impressive. The parking lot for Devil's Chasm was too full for us to park there (very small!) but you can park at the Cape Perpetua visitor center and hike over. The trail from the visitor center isn't fully paved and does include a brief bit along Highway 101, but there was more parking and the option to include the Captain Cook trail as well.

There are stairs down from the trail to get you closer to the chasm but there isn't a lot to see.
