    Michael Medina reviewed Cape Falcon

    over 3 years ago

    Approached from the north, parking along Hwy 101 between Cove Beach Rd. and Falcon Cove Rd.

    You get 10 feet off the road and are presented with some of the nicest coastal old-growth still standing. It's great for a couple miles where it changes to relatively recently cut second growth, some of it's nice, some not so much. As you approach the Cape, you get back into the old-growth and are teased with a few ocean vistas. Very few people approach from this direction, you may not see anyone until the Cape.

    Magical old-growth woods near the start. Worth the price of admission. The natural meadow/clearing around mile 3.6 is a good turn around point, there is a falling hazard there but no worse than any other trail in Oregon.

    Easy hike with an unexpectedly spectacular waterfall at the end. I mean, even though you've seen the photos and it's called Falls Creek, it's still totally awesome. The road is closed Dec 1 to Apr 1 which makes it close to 9 miles but if you can park in the parking lot it's only 3.8 miles round trip

    Crowded in the summer, awesome in the rain. Definitely a falling hazard so be careful. One of the best in the Pacific Northwest.

    It took me 4 tries to get this one done, mostly starting too late to finish before dark. It's a nice hike, sheltered in the woods a bit, but there are plenty of places to peek over the cliffs and see the ocean. Muddy, but you can go around it easily enough. Probably crowded on the south end in the summer, but a on a chilly winter Saturday, we only saw a few people.

    Been out here twice and each time was completely different and both times were totally awesome. It's steep and can be muddy. The trail isn't well maintained, but hopefully that just keeps the crowds away.

    FYI Don't try to hike out in the dark if there's no moon. Once 17 years ago it took me 2.5 hours to go the last mile in pitch black :D

    Difficult hike to recommend (ok for mountain biking). Terrible ending on gravel road next to a DOT gravel shed, ORVs, MTBs, target shooters, firewood collectors, and 2 active logging sites adjacent to the trail(!). There are definitely quiet spots, beautiful scenery, lush woods, wonderful waterfalls and really nice streams. Maybe if it were a little warmer, I would have enjoyed it more. I won't NOT recommend this one. Go during the week, less ORV traffic.
