Excellent hike! The roots and puddles were a bit difficult but all around an amazing hike!! So gorgeous!!!

Easy relaxing hike along Wilson River. 4 stars because of the noise from highway 6 but the river is so loud in portions it actual drowns out the sound of the motor vehicles. Tiny Tiny Waterfall is a must see about half way between foot-bridge and Forest Center. Many areas to hike down to the rivers edge for lunch and a lazy nap in the sun. Went on a Sunday late morning and surprised by the lack of other hikers. Perfect for kids and a easy one hour drive from Portland.

This is a great trail on a clear day. The views at the top are really beautiful. There is loose rock at some points along the trail but overall it wasn’t too bad. Be careful going downhill. Took a little over 3 hrs to complete round trip.

Awesome hike to this Clatsop County high point. On a clear day you can see Mt. Rainer, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, Nehalem Bay, the PacificOcean and the mouth of the Columbia River.

The muddiest trail ever. Crazy tree roots. Pretty views. Great for kids and not hard.

Awesome short trails. The kids loved it. Great views.

Amazing hike. Amazing views. Love burning calories on this trail!!!

Gorgeous hike with amazing views of the Columbia River, the coast line, and five major mountain peaks on a clear day. It's mostly forested and easy the first half and exposed, steep, and rocky the second half.

Be sure to take the .2-mile spur to Humbug for more gorgeous views. This hike is easy enough if you're fit, but don't let it fool you, because it can also be treachorous. I strongly recommend good hiking boots with tread and hiking poles. The second half is steep with loose rock and wire fencing embedded in the ground that can be slippery without proper footwear. Even though it's short, be sure to take your ten essentials and enough food and water in case you're stuck with an injury. It's easy enough for the strongest hikers to sprain or break an ankle.

We did this in reverse and returned to the beach trail head. A very nice day out which included cycling from Fort Stevens Camp ground. The hike is easy and through beautiful forest. Some steeper inclines with switchbacks but ok. The condition of the trail is great- new bridges and decking in places. We lunched at the Visitor Centre and fort before returning. Good wifi at the VC. Highly recommend the hike and take in the VC and short film on Lewis and Clark.

Well worth the hike. Definitely not easy, but I’m no expert hiker and did fine.

We hiked this trail on father's day and it was very busy, but not over crowded, fairly easy walking, my 5yr old almost did the whole trail on his own, so it's very kind friendly. loved the view of the falls and the pools at the bottom to play in the water and cool off.

Over-all, the trail was a nice moderate hike, with a few rather steep climbs and in some areas sketchy footing.

Starting out, there needs to be a better trail identification set-up, as we actually turned on the down river trail, only to turn back around and finally find the right trail.

For planning - this trail actually breaks out into 2 other hikes as well, depending on the distance one wants to hike.

Waterfall actually crosses the trail, I would imagine that with more rain, this might make crossing a bit difficult.

As for hikers/bikers, not to many on the trail, but there were a few.

Hiked with out dogs....

Well worth the trip - easy drive up. 90% uphill on the way up so a pretty easy way down! Super windy at the top but the views were some of the best I've ever seen. a few picnic tables spread through out to bring some snacks and rest up! Low traffic end of September

The trail is lava and you can only walk on the roots.

I feel so blessed to have been on the top of this mountain on a clear day. We saw Mt Ranier, Mt St Helen’s, Mt Adams, Mt Hood, and Mt Jefferson. We stayed at the summit exploring and taking pictures for a good hour and completed this hike in 3 hours including that time on top The chicken wire on the trail helps with footing. This is a must do hike. You see the ocean and the snow capped mountains

My husband and I did this hike on a beautiful sunny day. The trail was easy to follow and we had no trouble completing it in sneakers. We hung out at many viewpoints and the top just soaking in the view and took the spur trail to the beach on the way back and rested by the water before heading out. Definitely worth repeating

Great hike. Long but many different terrain

Great trail. If you want to beat the crowd show up by 8

Easy, beautiful hike.

Awesome hike!!! Little sketchy on parts with mesh fencing put down on the trail, but overall pretty well maintained. Great views at the top!!!

Challenging, quiet and beautiful! Our Apple Watch showed 8.8 miles when we finished.

Fun trail. Strong climb. Well identified and guarded. Sturdy boots recommended and poles for those not-so-sure footed. Saw all 5 mountains at the top with even some high altitude cloud cover. The last third feels like you are in Scotland or Wales scenery wise.

Awesome place to take friends and family

I never get tired of this trail, it changes with the seasons. The Vine Maple is turning red now and there are a few wildflowers still blooming.

For a half-day fun near Seaside/Portland area, definitely do this hike. I did it with my partner, middle September and there were maybe five couples and a few solo hikers we encountered.

To get to the parking, it is 7 miles of long and windy, but well paved roads.

The hike is beautiful with the hardest part being the incline at the end. It is slightly deceiving because you hike up one mountain to view people at the top of the real peak. But at the top it is an unbelieveable site with ocean view, the state of Washington, and the mountains of northeastern Oregon.

Wore sneakers with good traction, did not need full hiking gear.

Side note, there are picnic tables scattered throughout so could just be a fun picnic hike as well.

Nice hike. Some beautiful views. Half the trail is very well maintained, the rest is roots and puddles. Went hiking on a rainy September day.

Drive out on one lane road was tricky. But well worth it. Trail was easy. Nice waterfall.
