this trail is rated as moderate but it was pretty easy. it was nice and cool. The trail was surprisingly crowded, however you weren't nipping at one another's heels. It was BEAUTIFUL! At mile 2 the waterfall was amazing. Lots of dogs. Many off leash which was fine as my dog is well behaved.

Great hike, although the amount of horse crap that is everywhere is pretty gross. Just be careful. Its literally everywhere.

I want to emphasize that you should start from the Indian Beach parking lot and picnic area, not the lot the navigation leads to. The Ecola Point Trail is closed, and I wouldn’t recommend pushing through passed the “trail closed” sign like I did.

Hiked this in early August and the trail was still very muddy. The trail itself was not that hard (would rate moderate only due to length) but the mud and fallen trees on the trail force you to parkour around a bit, making it mildly more strenuous.

The trail itself showcased some beautiful rainforest areas and views of the ocean. Very peaceful. I would not recommend doing the 12mi there-and-back. The walk back was pretty soul-sucking and exhausting. Leave a car in Seaside if you can.

Saw ducks, blue herons, cranes, hawks, several varieties of small birds, deer and nutria. The four hundred year old oaks are amazing.

Very muddy! Would consider this a more than moderate hike and very slick. Need proper hiking gear as well

This is a wonderful hike... make sure you have a car on the other side.

Love this hike so much. It so secluded and a beautiful walk. Could spend all day here. The signs are a bit confusing at first but I do love it. The mill is always a great see.

We loved bringing our dogs here to enjoy this beautiful spot. I loved being nestled in all the nature surrounding me. We saw a coyote, it was near the trail by the farm but ran into the farm land when we came by. It didn’t run into the woods, just stood watching us. We saw tons of birds. Very nice place!

Great place to take kids, see some horses and listen to the birds, see the beautiful trees and not too difficult. Beautiful place to use your imagination.

Being that it was a Saturday in July I was expecting the park to be busy and it was, the main parking lot was full. I parked in the equestrian parking lot and walked the outer most trail. I didn’t meet anyone who was walking the trail and I met only 9 equestrians. Most of the trail is in the shade, perfect for a warm summer day.

This is a fabulous Trail. In fact, Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery actually took this trail from their winter quarters to Ecola to trade with the Native Americans.

I have noticed that many people have said the Tillamook Head Trail is closed. That is not correct. The trail is open. I think people are confusing the Tillamook Head Trail with the Ecola to Indian Beach Trail. The Ecola to Indian Beach Trail is still closed about half way in, but to be crystal clear, the entire Tillamook Head Trail is open from Indian Beach to Seaside -- and there is a parking lot at Indian Beach (in addition to the Ecola parking lot).

One-way, this is about a 5.5 mile hike with about 1,300 feet of elevation gain. If you do not want to do the 11 Mile in-and-out hike, you can leave a car in Seaside and park one at the Indian Beach parking lot (which is in Ecola State Park).

I have seen people do this hike in everything from flip-flops to serious hiking boots. I would definitely recommend hiking boots, especially if it has rained recently. But many people choose to do this hike in tennis shoes and do fine. We hiked it again last week and it was mostly dry. I would also suggest bringing some insect repellent.

This is a wonderful hike with some great ocean views and lots of old growth trees. I am in decent hiking shape and would classify this trail as moderate.

great walk, lots of shade

I wouldn’t rate this as moderate. It’s a pretty easy jaunt with complimentary descends and ascends. Beautiful falls, although very little camping space. The road from the south is open. Fishing was great! Nothin like speckled trout for dinner

Amazing trails, we got to see people on there horses, and see the beautiful scenery. I’ll definitely be going back to this one... One thing to keep in mind there are steep hills there. But great all around!!

Wonderful escape, not far from town.. watch out for stinging nettles!!

This trail is so relaxing and is perfect for a cardio workout and a nice walk with my dog. The views are so pretty and there are a lot of different paths to take so there is always something new to explore everytime I go on this trail. My first time on this trail it was pretty hard to understand where I was supposed to be going as there were so many paths but the GPS on this app helped me stay on the correct paths. Pretty soon I was trying new paths and over time it was easier and easier to navigate.

Not stroller friendly but a great outdoor adventure. Lots of places to just sit and enjoy the lake.

Great area need to go back & explore

The lower trail is a loop trail with boulders, rocks, roots and trees, so watch your footing. Start to the right once you hit the lake, it is well marked on this side. I started on the left side and there were no trail markings. Lots of bugs out today 6/19/19. The upper trail starts from the lower and ends at the campground. The upper trail is more of a workout. Mostly uphill.

Easy walk to the falls. You can walk out on the rocks, but watch your footing. There are multiple signs that say no water contact. There is a bathroom, parking lot and picnic areas here.

Nice regional park for an afternoon stroll with the dog. Definitely a lot of horses here along with all their bushels of road apples. Makes one wonder why horse owners aren’t held to the same poop standards as dog owners???

Took the kids & went with my walking group a few weeks after. Was a really great light hike for the kids to get the season started❤️

great hike for all levels. Many different trail options to make the hike last.

Loved this trail. Little difficult to get up to it, and make sure you take note of how to get back out! Trail is a little over grown with salmon berries but the trail is clear and easy to follow. Didn’t make it all the way to the waterfall so we will definitely be going back.

This was a fun trail to hike with the kids. The information about the length of the trail is wrong. The top/upper trail was 1.5 miles and the bottom trail is 1.5 miles. You have to do both trails to get a 3 mile hike in. The upper trail has hills up one side, then you flatten out and come down and around the other. The lower trail along the lake is fun and a beautiful hike. There are some spots where there are a lot of tree roots you can easily trip on if you aren’t paying attention. You also have to play limbo in some areas as well as climb over a tree. Our family will be doing. This again.

We hiked Seaside to Indian Beach today. No trail closures, but some areas you have to get creative to get through.

Not a looper but a nice easy trail with a creek view. Less than a hr
