A very nice spot on the Oregon coast with a scramble atop Blacklock Point, an eroded headland with excellent views of the coastline. A bounty of Boletes if you hit it in the fall

This was a great hike! So many different things to see. We started off at the Floras lake trail head and went around the Lake and connected with the coastal trail. When we were on the coastal trail we walked through some beautiful forest where we were blocked from the wind. From the coastal trail we took a slight detour onto a slightly overgrown pathway. That pathway led us to the beach where we walked down the coast as far as we could go, almost to Blacklock. At the very end was a waterfall and rocks to climb and adventure on. As we walked along the beach there were lots of cool rocks and archways to explore as well. Great hike for our dog as well! She got super tired. Overall a win!

Nice trail that I will end up doing again. Nice views of the small lake with options to hit the beach or go further on down the Oregon Coast trail. A nice option would be to link up with the Blacklock Pt Trail which I've done before.. It makes sense that there would be an option to loop the lake as well but I don't see it on any maps yet at the beginning I noticed a trail going the opposite direction..... next time.

Very boring hike I did along with the Floras Lake hike. I hiked several different trails all day today and the battery on my camera finally went dead. Very long straight stretches of nada. Gorgeous open ocean views near the end but the wind was howling about 30 knots. Surprising how many people were on the trail, though. Doubtful that I'll repeat this one.

The trail itself from the Cape Blanco airport isn't very exciting, flat and a lot of dense ocean shrubbery, but the viewpoints and topography at the end is well worth the hike.

Kinda boring trail, unless you're in to plants. But the payoff at the end is extraordinary. What a view!

I took the long way from Floras Lake down the beach along the cliffs to Blacklock Point. The waterfall was barely wet.

Oh, and a side note. When you choose directions on this app is sends you to what I assume is a different trailhead. It was quite a ways away across 101 to the east. We googled the Cape Blanco Airport and started there.

We hiked from the parking lot by the airport to Blacklock Point and back and it measured 2.8 miles round trip. I recorded the track one way but it saved under Floras Lake Trail. We hiked it 3/19/16 on a foggy drizzling day. There was a lot of standing water on the trail in many places.

I imagine the view would be gorgeous on a clear day. There is a lot of flat ground when you reach the cliffs overlooking the ocean. It would be a perfect place to have a picnic.

The hike was very easy, dog friendly and would be kid friendly too. (We only had our dog with us).

Beautiful. A hidden gem.
