So cool. A must see!

It rains almost every day here so expect it, I am told. No views when I went but still beautiful forest.

Great hike! Definitely moderate with the cliffs and tree roots to climb over. Also distance is longer than noted. Views are stunning!

Beautiful Hike, I Take My 9 Years Old Daughter She Love It.

Gorgeous!! Def do this on a clear day!!

A well travelled, easy trail with some of the most spectacular views in Oregon. Perfect for families. Ocean views as well as forest. Really enjoyed it. Best on a clear day.

Beautiful well kept trail with gorgeous views of the ocean. I agree with all other reviewers, should be rated as moderate.

Hike was moderate. Lots of roots to step and climb over. Beautiful views of the ocean. Overall great experience!

Beautiful trail but should be rated moderate.

This hike was gorgeous! But I would definitely rate it moderate and it’s a solid 3 miles each way as I tracked my hike. Being an active but out of shape mom with my 20 lb baby in a pack it took me 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete.

Great photo ops on this hike.

Beautiful views of the Pacific! Really enjoyed this hike. Was kind of a last minute though so it was a harder hike than I originally expected, now seeing several reviews rating it moderate makes me understand why. But the views of the ocean, beach, and cliffs are so worth it.

I would call this hike moderate because of the tree roots and the portions that were right along the cliff side (no guardrails!) We did not take our dog, even though they are allowed, because he doesn't do well with other dogs and we didn't want to have any encounters along the cliff portions. I'm glad we made this decision! Beautiful vista at the end. We watched for whales for about 20 minutes and did not spot any, although we spotted some right off the coast from the nearby Pelican Brewery in Pacific City after the hike.

Nice short trail lots of stairs we left from the visitors center and there was a tunnel under the highway almost all blackout very beautiful.

This place is a hidden gem. Great place to spend the day in ocean or along the little stream that leads to proposal rock. It's just breath taking. Get hungry stop in a Hawk Creek Restaurant that's at the entrance to path to the beach.

Beautiful scenery. Encountered about 20 hikers on a Wednesday school day, so I’m sure it’s basically group-to-group busy on weekends. Because of tree roots at elevation changes I wouldn’t rate some sections as “easy” if any the hiker has mobility issues.

Great hike, fairly easy, some spots are full or roots creating a small challenge, but the final destination is worth it. Great spot for whale watching, we were able to see 4 or 5, as well as a couple seals, birds, and the like. *Careful with small children the trail goes along the edges of the cliffs.*

Great trail! Fairly easy, although I may rate it moderate due to all the tree roots on the ground that make the trail a bit harder to hike on. It is definitely uphill more on he way back, but the views are beautiful! Took my two dogs and they were challenged by it, I’d keep them on a leash because there’s cliff most of the way.

Beautiful today - overcast morning in the 50s. My idea of perfect hiking weather. A little mud, and lots and lots of roots, as others have mentioned. 3 other cars when I arrived at 0830, but at least 30 cars 3 hours later. The parking lot serves 3 trails, so not all were hiking out to the point.

This was a beautiful hike with nice incline and declines through out. The terrain is diverse with smooth walkways to stepping over tree branches and stumps. I will not call this an easy hike but moderate. The end of the hike is definitely worth it.

Great trail! Saw a couple whales and great view of the ocean and coast line. Lots of roots along the second half of the trail and can see how it can be muddy during the rainier months.

Beautiful hike! Bonus was seeing a bunch of whales we we got to the end of it. And do be aware of all the mud! Wearing appropriate shoes/ones you aren’t afraid to get super muddy helps.

The trail emptied onto the beach. Beautiful!

Whale watching hotspot!
Because this cape sticks out from the shoreline 2.5 miles the whales must navigate around the point. You are perched 400’ above them and only 60-70 feet out so the view is stellar. See photos!

love the views and relaxing above of the waves

Easy hike worth the trip for the view.

Great hike and beautiful views.

Super easy hike but well worth the view!

Beautiful views! We got lucky and saw a whale. The only downside was the crowds hanging out beyond the ropes at the lookout and the muddiness. My dog definitely needed a bath after that one.
