Your first impression of Loeb may well be the scent of the myrtlewood forest ... a crisp, bay leaf aroma. The park is nestled in a grove of these lovely trees. Many of the trees in the park are well over 200 years old. The Chetco River swirls and dances just beyond the park. Several campsites and three rental cabins face the river. During the year, you can fish, swim and raft, or just walk a self-guided streamside nature trail. The river offers some of the finest fall and winter salmon and steelhead fishing on the south coast. You can bank fish from the gravel bar or use a drift boat. Throughout spring and summer, you may see scampering chipmunks, hear chirping osprey or see a family of river otters frolicking in the water. The northern most redwood grove in the U.S. can be reached by a .75 mile self-guided River View Trail adjacent to the Chetco River.

Went on this hike with our kids today as part of our RV trip to the Redwoods. Saw a banana slug
Almost right away which was cool. Perfect length of hike for younger kids, not very steep. It felt otherworldly. Redwoods are so amazing to see. The whole area was so dense and green. Really enjoyable hike.

Easy trail, mostly shaded, towering trees, moss-laden branches, and banana slugs! Great for kids, dogs, and everyone else. Awesome little trail for those making their way up the Oregon coast and just want to stop and stretch and enjoy the beauty of these magnificent trees.

Fun, easy trail! Well maintained and lots to view. If you want to know what each of the 15 markers are marking, be sure to print the natural trail pamphlet before you go - they are not at the trailhead. Also, look up if it's windy. We had a few branches come down on the trail.

Been going on this trail since I was a kid. Great forest views of newer baby redwoods, beautiful creek running through nearby. I recommend starting on Riverview Trail in Loeb Park which will spit out right across the street from this trail. It adds a little more mileage and some sweet riverviews.

Beautiful hike with great waterfalls!

Such a beautiful hike. Great for the kids and just the right length for a nice afternoon hike.

This is one I do regularly with my dogs I usually park at Loeb and do out and back or I will do it out and back from the Redwoods parking lot. My lab loves crashing the river when it's safe...

I do this trail a lot with my dog. Some days there is no one there and it's usually in good shape. If you cross the street it connects with the Loeb Park Trail and I normally do both...

Peaceful trail. Plenty wide and wheelchair accessible. picnic tables to enjoy nature, and a hallowed redwood perfect for iconic photos.
