    Aaron Seifer reviewed North Ridge Trail to Marys Peak

    26 days ago

    Hiked this on Memorial Day weekend - great trail! Steep (duh), and as others have mentioned there are a number of big blowdowns across the trail that you'll have to deal with. I counted 7 spots where I had to climb over, and 1 spot where I had to crawl under. No snow anywhere that I saw. Not heavily trafficked, though I did run into a couple of sets of people with dogs off leash and at saw at least one pair of mountain bikers descending - so be aware.

    Aaron Seifer reviewed Oregon Coast Trail: Arch Cape to Manzanita

    3 months ago

    Just did this section hike of the Oregon Coast Trail on Spring Break - was super fun, but also pretty challenging! Tons of roots to watch out for, and was SUPER muddy this time of year (though others we talked to said that parts of this trail are always muddy). Was overgrown out around Cape Falcon, and we must have been some of the earlier hikers through this area, because there were multiple trees blown down across the path that caused us to do a little "ad libbing" over and around them. Muddiest section of the path was after Cape Falcon and into Short Sands, probably because that path is more used. Awesome views, super cool forests, and you can stop at Short Sands for a beach break if you want. Be warned, the hike up out of Short Sands on the Elk Flats trail is super steep right away, levels off in the middle, and then is steep again up to Hwy 101. You can choose to do the hike up and over Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain if you want once you reach the end of the Elk Flats trail at 101, but we were too beat to do it, so we skipped the Mountain and hiked on the road until we got to Neah-Kah-Nie Meadows, where we walked through (steep) neighborhood streets to get to Manzanita.

    So fun - quite muddy in January - but still fun.
