The day-use area restroom and dump station are temporarily closed. Washburne is located on the east side of Highway 101 with a buffer of native plants between you and the highway. The campsites are spacious. There are several trails of varying difficulty leading from the campsites to the beach, wildlife viewing areas, and second-growth forests. A walking trail leads you under the highway to a five-mile sandy beach and a day-use area, where you'll find space to watch whales, hunt agates, beachcomb, and picnic. Another trail connects you to the Heceta Head trail, which you can use to reach the historic Heceta Head lighthouse (check the Heceta Head Lighthouse web page for information on tours). In the campground at night, you can hear the pounding surf. There is a creek running through the campground, and elk have been known to wander through. Wild rhododendrons bloom in spring.

A little more than i expected. Nice trail but a bit hilly. My knee was not holding up well going down so i had to retreat knowing that if i went all the way down it would be hell on my knee to come back up. I will try this again after i workout my knee more. Pretty trail though.

beautiful half mile in, then a long stroll on the beach before heading back. I'm pretty sure it's the hike back up to the trail head that makes this moderate.

It is a nice hike that the whole family can enjoy.

Wonderful views and a great workout!! Love this one!!

Great trail. Very well maintained and great beach.
