Best stop we made off the Oregon Coast Highway. Super muddy terrain but so worth it.

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.

Moderate Hime with beautiful views

Fantastic trail for the family. Our 13 and 11 year old children handled it fine. Scenic forest and ocean shoreline views were amazing. Recommend taking water/trail snacks. Walked 12,000 steps and climbed 75 stories on apples’s health app. Trail can be quite slippery if damp.

We couldn’t find the trail, but I’m sure we could’ve if we hadn’t been distracted by the gobs and gobs of whales! Absolutely gorgeous site overall.

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

Absolutely amazing trail, right out of National Geographic! Spring time, marvel at the pups sunning themselves at mid trail point. Whales can be seen year round. Trails well kept, a surprise around each bend! Benches provided to rest and for over 30 crowd, convinient stop point to apply numbing cream to knees!
Winter brings huge swells, the pacific flexes her muscles, shows us who is boss!
Very easy trail, so many distractions along the way, making it fun and healthy!

Great hike but still closed. Once you pass the sign you can go down the washed out trail to the beach. It is very muddy but a good adventure. Still great views on the open part as well.

Was a fun short hike. A little muddy on the first part of the trail but gets better for the downhill part.

A nice incline up the eastern trail that led to hiker’s camp and the overlook. A more winding path along the western edge that leads back to Indian beach. Next time, I would definitely take the trail all the way to Seaside. Hiker’s camp is a neat spot for a rest or picnic.

incredible views!
the trail was as muddy as they claim and then some, plan accordingly.

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.

Absolutely stunning views. Beach waterfall at the end. I never minded getting muddy as the views were spectacular.

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

A great hike with amazing views. It was a bit cloudy but when it cleared it was worth the hike!

Just a beautiful hike along hwy 101 and parts of Oregon coast. Although some of the trail intersects with the road you barely notice it’s there.

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

Don’t let the scary reviews keep you from this hike. You need to use common sense but I never felt overly exposed or scared. We were able to see whales from both the top and from almost the top. We did the loop trail and were on the road for over half the hike down. We decided to jump on the beach and enjoyed the waves to complete our loop. The view is incredible with minimal effort. Don’t miss this

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

My husband and I hike from the south trailhead. It took us about 45 minutes to get to the summit. We arrived at the viewpoint and noticed a large climbable rock behind us. It was indeed climbable and we had incredible views from the top. There was an easier way down that can be clearly seen from the top. Going up it is on the right of the trail just before the view. After a good hour on top trying to memorize the view we continued to the north trail head and were rewarded with more incredible views as we were nearing the trailhead. We ran the 2 miles back to our car

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

Doing controlled burn tomorrow so trail is filled with firemen and hoses

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

Go early to avoid a crowd at the top.
