Still some snow on the trail. Snow, rain and hail on Sunday.

great hike and view. Even though it rained, still had a great view!

Beautiful terrain various from dry to lush. I would say this is light moderate.

One of my favorites ever!!!

Trails are nice and well marked, that’s always a plus, lol. Loved the hike :)

trails are not marked very well but, still a fun easy hike

Beautiful, moderately traveled trail with many switchbacks up the side of a hill. Spectacular views of the ocean and lots of wildflowers in the Spring. At the top is a parking lot with bathrooms and a shelter overlooking the ocean. Amanda Trail ends up at the same parking lot from the other direction.

. Beautiful view of mt Hood.and the the area. Lots of black bears, keep an eye out of markings and scat. Best between June to November

A beautiful place to hike for the day

I really enjoyed this hike but it’s not the most scenic.

The water here is the prettiest blue to turquoise.

Couldn’t get my sportwagen through the snow today unfortunately but looks like a beautiful area! Going to try again in a month or so

I hiked it in early March after a long series of snowstorms. Something magical about this place. I couldn’t summit due to the amount of snow near the top. This place can get significant snow accumulation.

Very well maintained, even in the winter (with the obvious exception of some mud!). Quite a bit of open space, but also lots of trees for hiking on rainy days ♥️

Took my 5 1/2 year old and we completed it at a good pace in no time. Beautiful trail, great people as always.

great trail, well maintained. I'm glad I didn't bring my 2 young children as it would have been too hard for them. Definently not stroller/toddler friendly.

Great hike with lots of options!

who's doing a 12 mi loop?? drop a car in Ecola and rally at pelican then get your car in seaside later.

This is a great area but I'm yet to find the second falls. The trails are poorly marked. I would recommend tracking your mileage or recording your trail to keep on track.

Lovely view from the top!!

Such a great hike! So many beautiful pools to stop at. Also a good place to go backpacking. I’ve been twice and plan on going again later this spring.

Awesome hike! There are plenty of stops along the way to look out at the ocean. Way less muddy than we thought it’d be considering the rain this past month. If you can time your hike to be at the beach during low tide it’s really nice to look in the tide pools. Lots of starfish and other creatures.

Beautiful views! I’d consider it a moderate hike.

I went on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and super crowded! Nonetheless, super beautiful view of Eugene/Springfield.

Wonderful hike

Always a beautiful hike! One of our favorites

Solid winter hike, not too busy. Great swimming in the summer. Beautiful falls year round.

So fun! Went up the steep trail and down the main path. Was busy but fun!

Trail is washed out about a mile in or so but it has some amazing views up and down the coast.

This was a great afternoon winter hike. One thing to keep in mind for winter hikes is that trees may have fallen and yet to be cleared. We had a few tree trunks to cross over that would change the difficulty to Moderate.

Another note is to make sure to make sure to wear shoes with traction. We saw people on the trail in rain shoes, aka slickers. This trail has several sections of ascending and descending areas that can be muddy and slippery.

I would also recommend going on to Green Peak Falls after seeing Alsea Falls. There is a $3.00 day use fee payable at the box. Take correct change. None provided.
