A beautiful hike!

Easy trails to the bottom of both spectacular falls! The trail to the top of Golden Falls is an easy incline and the views from the top are definitely worth the hike. Overall, stunning scenery.

Phenomenal hike!!! It was warm and sunny in January!!! Lots to see in the first and gorgeous views of the cape and ocean! There some slight up and down. There were some muddy spots but kind of fun to try and get over. At least that’s what my 12 year old step son said. Bring good hiking boots. Great for the family!_

Went on a Cold Sunday morning hike. We took the Kopetski trail loop and came around the back side of jawbone flats. No worries you end up on the same trail you start on. We started our hike at 11 AM and got done at 2:15 PM. We only saw two other groups of hikers until we started to head back, then it was a bit more crowded, but no problem as it’s not nearly as bad as the summer time. Dress warm/layers as you are hiking in a canyon that gets very little sunlight and it’s cold until you warm up from hiking. We stopped for a small lunch at jawbone flats and had to layer back up before we got going again. Love this place. BRING CASH OR CHECK for parking. And if you can spare it, the town takes donations too, and once you see how pristine they help keep the town and trails you’ll want to donate. Great hike for all ages and skills but the Kopetski Loop is a little more rugged and step, would not recommend for little ones or people with old knees. Enjoy.

Beautiful and scenic hike to do in the winter time; but the difficulty level goes from easy to moderate when there’s snow and ice.
A “must try” hike, when snow has fallen!
Micro spikes or something similar highly suggested!

we did this trail on Jan. 12 under gorgeous blue skies and a warm breeze from the south. it felt like June! we saw 2 whales and several commercial crabbing boats. there was some thick mud over a small portion of the trail but it was manageable in trail running shoes. we did see some people in pristine Chuck Taylors starting on as we were headed back. not a good shoe choice.

we started from the campground and hiked up the North trail and hooked into this trail. the cape trail is very heavily trafficked on a weekend making our favorite trail the North trail.

easy hike with a wonderful ending!!!

Amazing view at top! Beautiful all the way up.

We set off from the Seaside trailhead on a crisp, clear New Year’s Eve morning, around 8:30 am, and made it to Cannon Beach city center in about 6 hours, covering about 10 miles in total (26,000 steps). There were many points along the trail with spectacular vistas. Some of this may be obscured by foliage during spring and summer months because we noticed a lot of bare deciduous trees along the way. We loved the variety of forestation we encountered. There were some very muddy areas, and several of the boardwalks placed over them were weakened or broken. Largely a well kept trail, however. Hiker’s camp, the WW2 bunker, and Indian Beach were highlights of the day. We hardly encountered a soul until we got to that point. The only disappointment was that the trail from Indian Beach to Ecola Point is closed, so we chose to hike the road back. Other reviews suggest that it’s passable, but we didn’t want to risk it. Hopefully this portion opens back up; we’d definitely do this one again!

We did this hike late on a gorgeous winter day. Made it to the lookout just as sunset arrived. I would rate the trail easy, but there are several very muddy areas, and a lot of roots to navigate. We did it with two kids and a small dog. The traffic as we were going out was fairly heavy. The elevation change wasn’t bad, but much of the return trip is uphill. The views are worthwhile, but there is some work to get back to the trailhead. Very enjoyable!

You absolutely need traction devices on your boots. We passed person who fell and possibly broke a arm. It's a ice trail over rocks and tree roots so I recommend two treking poles to help prevent tripping, snow shoes that don't have a aggressive track on the side won't get a good bite over rocks. There was a back up at the boulder field from unprepared hikers without traction devices. My wife used micro spikes by Kahtoola I used ice trekkers diamond grippers by yaktraks. If cost if a factor check and for kids check out Stabilgear brand of microspikes at P-rkrose hardware for $19.

Did this during a wind storm on 7 December 2018. Reversing the route gave a much steeper ascent and is not recommend. Some of the trail is still beautiful, some waterfalls are amazing, but the essential beauty of several segments was lost to the fire.

Beautiful views in the beginning. Pretty trafficked throughout

My favorite waterfall in Oregon. it's truly magical. The only downfall is the hike being so short.

A perfect example of the beauty of Central Oregon.

One of the most beautiful hikes in Oregon. Jawbone Flats is an incredible site to see.

Not a fan of the road getting there, but the falls are amazing and totally worth it all.

Did today with friends and kids. Great hike. Beautiful from the top!

Elk on the way auto and on the way back down. Great views along the way of the coast.

Got there later in the afternoon so thankfully we missed all the tourist hikers.
Great for my 2 year old but again just too popular of a site to go more than once every few years.

Amazing Waterfall

My first Oregon trail to hike. Really pretty Hike with a gorgeous waterfall at the end. Hiked this trail in September. Perfect weather that day

This is a perfect hike for people who’d like to see Eugene. There are many points to stop and admire the scenery of what it means to be in Northwestern Oregon. I went December 27 and I was dressed in joggers and had a light jacket and windbreaker in the early afternoon and was comfortable. There are heaps of steps at the tail end of the hike but worth the view of all of Eugene and then some. Being raised in Eugene this is the first place I recommend if you plan on hiking anywhere in the Eugene area.

This was the first place we stopped on our road trip to Oregon, the trail was closed because of the fires in 2017 but the falls themselves were absolutely gorgeous! definitely a lot of people there and you really have to wait to get on the bridge but it was worth it!

Awesome trail.. very difficult

I'm so sad that this trail is closed. I had some really amazing memories there.

Hiked June 15, 2018 for the first time. Trail is muddy and slippery in quite a few spots. The trail surface is very irregular- lots of tree knobs and roots so that you had to watch your feet at all times. It might be an easy hike by elevation gain, but the condition of the trail, and attention needed, definitely makes this trail a moderate. The view is beautiful at Cape Falcon.
