    Amazing! We started this from the top trailhead as we headed toward Hart’s Cove.

    Started this hike from the Umbrella Falls trailhead. Crossing Newton creek was tough, but only because we didn’t spot the easy crossing going in.

    I really enjoyed this hike. The views of the peaks from Hoffer Lakes were amazing! We added on the Black Lake hike onto this one, seeing a total of 5 lakes. Stopped off as we were doing the Elkhorn drive.

    Shares a trailhead with bell’s overlook, which is a cool walk. Look for the watertower in the woods and check out the bunkers

    This is the shorter version of the famed cascade head hike. We stopped here on the way to Hart’s cove and ended up staying the afternoon. The trail takes you through the woods to the very top of the headland, a grassy meadow overlooking the sea-stack filled ocean.

    Loved this. Went in the evening, at sunset. Hot but doable. Amazing shades of pink, red, and white in the canyon faces.

    Lovely trail—really enjoyed the lower path closer to the river too.

    The trail starts out strong, passing through the cemetery and the waterfall. The wildflowers are blooming all along the hillside you first hike up on a series of switchbacks. The viewpoint was really nice, open view of the gorge, 84, and mosier below. This is the best part of the hike.

    Nice easy walk through the woods, river off to the side. Trails wasn’t muddy. Saw several snakes. Lighthouse at the end is cool. Really enjoyed the drive to the trailhead.

    Really lovely place—the beach is amazing! Able to see cape lookout to your north, cape kiwanda to the south, and you’re immersed in a sandy, swampy maze. Pretty level terrain throughout. Not a lot of people. The rare birds (can’t remember their names) were out in full force and very endearing to watch. Thankful we have this park rather than it be a golf course.

    Didn’t seem like an official trail. More like scrambling up a steep dune. Awesome views. Pelted by sand at the top.

    Great hike. I also really like how the trail is connected with an access trail (it’s short) to beach. Makes it easy to do the hike and then go right to the beach.
