Be careful when going to green peak falls. Just beyond the last tree on the trail right before the falls under the log right ahead is a ground wasp nest. They attacked our group and endured many stings but we got out ok. I wouldn't recommend bringing kiddos or dogs to the green peak falls.

love this trail. easy to follow. challenging to do.

Fun trail

Fun hike. Started at Indian Beach parking lot and did the Tillamook Head out & back. The trail is a little muddy in places but it’s a rain forest so no big surprise. I’d wear some sort of hiking or trail shoe/boot just for the added traction.

Hiked from Oswald west parking area to elk trail across the bridge, to devils cauldron, to north neahkahnie mountain trail, then went down on the west side and finished on the 101 going back to Oswald west parking area. The north side of the trail is over 60% over grown, the trail is very narrow and when it's not overgrown there are gnarly tree roots to cross with steep drop offs. In the beginning the trail was very slippery. The west side of the trail was a lot more easier and I saw many people and dogs on the west side. On the north side I only came across 2 other hikers.

Great views despite the fog. Went on a weekday to avoid heavy traffic. The descent to the beach is steep.

Good, steep in places hike with amazing views

Forest is amazing, some great views of ocean on the route back. Check out trail profile a workout up hill

This is a difficult but fun trek up to a beautiful summit. The last bit is a challenge but the 360 degree view is incredible and well worth it. We saw a lot of wild flowers, berries and fungi along the way and made several photo stops as the view is spectacular at several points along the way. Bring water and sunblock, there’s a good portion out from under the trees.

Beautiful views! Very busy trail and lots of tree roots to walk over. Inclines were not bad at all. Get there early because the parking gets full.

Stunning views, pretty steep at times. I started in Seaside and only saw one person for the first four miles. Got pretty crowded the closer I got to Indian Beach. Large portion of trail is very muddy. Definitely wear hiking boots (not shoes) as the mud is ankle deep in many places. So worth the effort.

I packed our one year old in the front pack, and our five, seven, and nine year olds hiked it. It is easy to go down, a little more difficult on the way up, our five year old complained the whole way back up. I would borderline suggest changing the difficulty level to a moderate just because of the uphill. The waterfalls were pretty small this time of year, it wasn’t a spectacular finish to the hike down but pretty. We had lunch at the picnic table at the end. We only passed a handful of people up and down, which made for a private hike which we did enjoy. I used the location set on this app to map the directions to the trail and it took us down some narrow old logging road. We finally were able to turn around and head back up the gravel road to turn on to the correct marked road to the Forest Service trail signs. There is no bathroom or any sort of station here, also we didn’t have any cell service, so plan accordingly.

Parts of it were absolutely beautiful. But it was hard to tell how to stay on the trail at times- and it went through a campground part way which was strange.

Awesome quick trail. Great views of the ocean from some of the spots. The beginning is steep, but after you conquer that part its pretty smooth sailing.

Beautiful! Not very muddy, and what mud was there was firm. Recommend getting here early though, parking filled up fast! Only 3 other cars in the lot when we arrived at 9am, completely full when we left at around 12:30. Bathrooms are past the trailhead, across the street.

Absolutely serene, gorgeous, and amazing. Great trail, lots to see, songbirds, and amazing water sights and sounds.

Nice way to see ferns and Oregon grapes up close

Pleasant hike but very crowded. The drive up after turning off the highway was quite a bit longer than I expected and very winding, with some potholes and most of it being single lane it was a little nerve wracking for me. I arrived right after 11am on a Thursday and the lot was completely full. About ten cars showed up right behind me and all just parked along the side of the road. Seems to be one of our local “hotspots” with need for permits in the near future. Bathrooms at the parking lot were indescribably filthy. I’m a nurse and I dry heaved... then practically bathed in hand sani. Would not recommend for a peaceful, quiet hike through nature due to the crowding. Great hike to go be out with friends/family, it’s not super hard, the bridge was cool, and some people were swimming around the waterfall at the end.

awesome, grin a bare the last 2miles. But it's worth it!
Take food and water for lunch at the top

Little thick the first 1/2 mile or so but the views are totally worth it! My wife and I hiked this on a Sunday and hit the trailhead around 12pm and didn't see anybody on the hike down to the beach, and crossed paths with only 1 other group of 3 on our way back up. The elevation gain was truly mild, but if it's wet at all, strongly recommend hiking footwear. It felt like you were in a dream/movie set in a rainforest with how thick the forest was, only to feel this amazing ocean breeze with incredible views and a total chill beach to hang out before the trek back up the hill!

Easy hike with plenty to see and hear. Loved walking through the forest and hearing the ocean waves. Great panoramic views from the highest point, and make sure to head to the end of the Cape Falcon trail to view the secluded black sand beach. We got to the trail head at about 8:45 and only started encountering other hikers on the way back, so go early for more quiet time, as this is a popular route with families. My favorite hike on the coast!

Somewhat steep and tricky descent to the beach, and challenging (for me) coming back up, but totally worth it! We had the beach completely to ourselves and enjoyed exploring. Started on the trail at about 8 and only saw 1 person until we were heading back to the parking lot around 9:30.

Barking sea lions is the first thing that comes to mind. They were loud about midway down the trail. There were muddy spots, but branches and rocks helped me get through. The views in the meadow at the end are nice. You have to hunt through the maze to get even better views. I didn't know there was a waterfall in the cove until a nice lady told me so. In the morning the cove was mostly a silhouette, but I can see the falls in my brightened photo after the fact. The cove would be lit better at midday or in the early afternoon.

Great hike - be prepared that it's all up hill going out. The ending is worth it though!

The trail starts off with some switchbacks that will have you over looking the ocean pretty quickly. During the majority of the switchbacks you will be out in the open and the trail will be pretty tight, but not too bad. Once you enter the trees the trail opens up, but you will have to be mindful of mud and roots. Towards the top the trail is very smooth until the final climb to the summit. Last 50 feet is a little rocky and has a slightly steep climb to the summit; the rest of the trail is a mild incline. Great view a summit. Looking at the beach there will be another peak to your left that allows a wider look at the mountain range, but you’ll have to traverse a pretty narrow ridge to get there. Take your time on the way down through the mud and you’ll be fine. Hike takes approximately 2 hours to complete without breaks.

View is breathtaking

Great hike not too hard and the bridge is amazing
