This was a challenging trail for someone with two new knees. The downhill portion was a bit wet and slippery and made me wish for walking sticks. The end of the trail was worth any amount of work. What a beautiful beach. Be sure to walk the entire beach and find the two waterfalls and an awesome “alcove”. Bring a garbage bag and take a few minutes to pick up some of the plastic that has washed ashore.

Beautiful place to see some incredible waterfalls! The trail takes you behind at least 3 of the waterfalls. The trail is well maintained, slight mud were expected given there’s lots of moisture around. Great place for 1/2 day hikes and will be visiting again!

I absolutely loved hiking this trail, ended up hiking almost 13 miles to see the entire thing! So many beautiful waterfalls and you get to walk behind 4 of them which was incredible!! I highly recommend!!!

I made it to the top today and it took all the will power I had. Didn’t get the sunny view but will try sometime in the summer again when I’m in much better shape! The views came out intermittently, and I was able snag a couple fun scenes.

Great hike that is challenging but short. It has some nice views and good climb.

If you have a dog, there are a fair amount of sharp rocks on the trail and there is also steel mesh. If your dog doesn't have tough enough paws its likely they will get cut, and there are sections where the steel has rusted.

This was the first time that I did this hike in the winter. It was amazing! We just hiked in our boots. Crampons could have been nice here and there, but it was totally doable without. We passed lots of people with snowshoes, which wasn’t necessary at all. We were definitely a lot faster and more agile. The hike overall is moderate. It took us a little under 3 hours to complete the hike (out and back). The view on the summit is stunning. Very windy though. We were able to see all five mountains. Such a treat. This hike is definitely one of my favorite ones. Great in any season!

Such a beautiful hike on a crisp winter morning I recommend this hike to anyone! So many beautiful waterfalls

Went on a Cold Sunday morning hike. We took the Kopetski trail loop and came around the back side of jawbone flats. No worries you end up on the same trail you start on. We started our hike at 11 AM and got done at 2:15 PM. We only saw two other groups of hikers until we started to head back, then it was a bit more crowded, but no problem as it’s not nearly as bad as the summer time. Dress warm/layers as you are hiking in a canyon that gets very little sunlight and it’s cold until you warm up from hiking. We stopped for a small lunch at jawbone flats and had to layer back up before we got going again. Love this place. BRING CASH OR CHECK for parking. And if you can spare it, the town takes donations too, and once you see how pristine they help keep the town and trails you’ll want to donate. Great hike for all ages and skills but the Kopetski Loop is a little more rugged and step, would not recommend for little ones or people with old knees. Enjoy.

Definitely need spikes up until about Mirror Lake and from there on out. Many people on snowshoes and in spikes. People with nothing were slipping a lot. Icy and well packed. Going up TDH mountain was relatively easy, this is my first time doing this hike in winter but second overall. Windy as all hell at the top! Sky was clear and Hood was shining!

Wonderful trail, very pleasant. Hiked today with two dogs. There are two large muddy spots and a few small ones. The beach is almost empty.

Beware:
(1) No sign at the trailhead to indicate the trail name. Look for a wooden post with an arrow sign pointing left.
(2) The last step to the beach is ugly. Due to erosion it's about a 2' drop from the bottom of the wood steps onto sand.

There's a second trail further south along Crescent Beach that connects to the Cannon Beach trail. It probably adds 0.4 miles to the hike, but it's a much better option with dogs or young children and it makes for a pleasant loop.

One of the most beautiful hikes in Oregon. Jawbone Flats is an incredible site to see.

Did this hike in November. Very beautiful views and not too much work to get there.

Got there later in the afternoon so thankfully we missed all the tourist hikers.
Great for my 2 year old but again just too popular of a site to go more than once every few years.

Beautiful views will do this again! Went in October good temperature and clear view

Awesome view! On a clear day 3 gorgeous mountains. Pitch dark when we headed back to parking lot, best place to do stargazing! Lots of shooting stars too.

Such a pretty hike, and the falls are amazing!

Hiking this trail in the winter is the way to go if you want to skip the crowds. It was the perfect little hike for a winter day.

Beautiful! It was pretty muddy towards the beginning of the trailhead and the middle. Me being miss grace tripped right out at the beginning and covered my pants and shoes in mud. Well worth it! It was a gorgeous hike with the best of both worlds. Lots of trees and lush green but also stunning beach.

Kicked my butt, but it was an amazing hike with wonderful views. Did it New Years Day, parking wasn’t full even at 10am. Saw a decent number of people. We brought our 75lb Shepherd/golden mix and highly recommend booties for any dogs on the mountain, especially near the top. We put his boots on around 1.75mi up the mountain when the chain link became prevalent on the ground. Bring lots of snacks, the elevation is harder than it seems! Be careful of ice covering the path near the top. Would love to go back again.

Great winter hike !!

I'd been to this trail several times during the summer, but never during the winter, and wow... go during the winter months! The trails aren't as packed, and the waterfalls are flowing with so much more water! Bring a waterproof jacket though because when you go under the falls the mists are so strong that you may get soaked. Excellent hike that I will keep going back to.

Absolutely amazing in every way, even when muddy and wet it was still fun to trail run. Just get ready to stop a lot, it’s breathtaking all throughout. I enjoyed starting at the North parking lot (not where this map leads you to) and running clockwise.

hiked this in July 2018. get to the trail Head before 9am or you don't get a parking spot on summer weekends. the hike is doable for most. gorgeous views but really crowded on the weekends.

It’s one of the best hikes that I have done here in us.... this time of year around with the overcast, the forest for green and live and serene and beautiful... waterfalls were amazing and walk behind certain waterfalls makes you forget where you are

Didn’t plan on doing at 7 miles. But it was a beautiful loop!! Went through the old mining areas which was cool. Not many swimming spots.

Started at the north trailhead to hiked south to Clark’s Viewpoint. The hike is pretty dull. There’s nothing remarkable about the forest here compared to anywhere else along the coast. There are limited views for the first four miles and the viewpoints offer obstructed and lackluster views. It’s better to start this from the south trailhead and only go to the viewpoint west of the hikers camp.

Amazing! Such a spiritual experience!!!

My favorite Oregon hike to date, and I’ve been hiking here about 15 years.

Somewhat muddy after the rain. But the view was worth the trek.
