The china creek trail is the prettiest part!!! We started at the Park at north end of trail and did the China Crest, lighthouse, and then hobbit trail and beach to park again. The lighthouse part added the burn, the rest was easy.

Beautiful trail in a magical forest. You get old growth giant moss covered trees as well as the coast/beach.

Amazing views!! Just need to be careful with sneaky waves and watch your steps.

This is a beautiful trail that covers the Oregon gamut (minus redwood trees). There’s a beautiful moss covered forest, streams, beaver dams, a lighthouse, hobbit holes and a misty expanse of beach with driftwood and interesting features. We added the lighthouse hike to the loop and it changed it from a walk (sometimes people in flip flops carrying beach chairs) to a hike (vertical gain through starkly dry and rain forest areas). The negative here was the road noise from the 101, which runs through the middle of the hike.

Fun hike with 4 teenagers taking the lead. Trail starts near visitor center. Parking permit was required and could be purchased for $5 for the day. Super cool tree at the end of the trail. Reminded us of what the tree might have been like in the book "My Side of the Mountain."

Beautiful view, I love walking this trail. Pretty off-trail areas to explore as well. I run and push a stroller on it and it works for the most part, with a few challenging spots. Very dog friendly, even has a trash can for waste disposal.

So cool. A must see!

Lovely walk along the beach.. trails diverge South end at the road and you can walk to the light house.

I added on the lighthouse trail to make it 6.6 miles. From forest to beach to vistas to the lighthouse this is worth a stop. Most don’t do the China Creek Loop and it was beautiful.

Awesome!!

I didn't have a lot of time for a hike so I just walked from hwy 101 down to the beach and back. It was an awesome little stroll through the dark forest to the Beach. Would definitely recommend this trail.

Short steep hike through the forest with amazing views along the way and on top! Hehe, feels so much more rewarding walking up when you see the folks that came by car

Great photo ops on this hike.

It was a nice hike/walk. Lots of people on a Saturday.

The trail emptied onto the beach. Beautiful!

Combines an beautiful beach walk with an awesome coastal forest hike. Make sure you take the China Creek loop - a quiet walk through an incredible Sitka Spruce forest.

Breathtaking. A great walk.

Perfect trail run

Favorite coastal hike. Connected to another trail and ended up doing 7.5 miles. Every bit of it beautiful!

Best to go at lower tide! Maybe just the season, but there was no one there and we got an awesome show. Short hike, a little confusing but just head down at either point by the bridge (there are two parking lots along the hwy). Gotta get out over the rocks but be careful with the tide, some waves come in big.

Love this! Super easy and nice for all ages. Very pretty views!

I love this hike. Its really pretty for looking at the ocean. Only thing some may not like is tourist come here frequently.

Really pretty hike. Only thing is that I assumed itd be more flat since its so straight but it goes up and down quiet a bit. It doesn't make it difficult but some may find that useful knowing.

One of my favorites and worth trying out. Only thing id say is if it's a cold, windy, and/or rainy day id skip the beach and go back the way you came. Ive also noticed when its rainy this trail doesn't get too terribly muddy. Theres only a few spots. Most pretty good.

I enjoy this going down the hill. Up hill can be kinda rough with how steep it is. Check the weather before going as mud can make it harder. I feel this trail is more uneven from rocks and roots on the ground. I dont find it an issue but some may.

This walk and beach is getting really crowded with tourists. Beautiful beach, but too many people if you’re looking for a peaceful nature walk. Please leave unfriendly dogs at home if they can’t get along with others.

I love this trail. It’s a 4.5 mile loop and it doesn’t even feel like it! The beach is a beautiful addition to the woodsy hike across the highway. There is also a separate trail to the right on the woods side, not sure where it goes as my friend and I ran into a giant daddy long leg and went back to the main trail!

High tide, big waves, sunset-super!

Great thank u

walked the entire length and back. Very little elevation, very gradual. would make a good trail running spot. can be combined with other trails to make it more interesting.
