Just south of Cannon Beach, this little wayside gives you easy access to the beach and a peek at some interesting history. Imagine travelling by stagecoach along the beach (before the highway was built, the beach was the only way to go). North of the parking area you can still walk along the original trail carved into the point by the stagecoaches. The wayside was named after this trail because it hugs the point. Looking further north, Haystack Rock�one of the most identifiable landmarks along the coastline�is easily visible. Caution to visitors; be aware of the tide! It is possible to become stranded at high tide when exploring the point. Take a look at the stagecoach trail, the view of Haystack Rock and the two caves around the point, but have a plan. Pick up a tide book at one of the local shops: have fun and be safe.

Crowded. You can walk up rocks over a waterfall, inside a small cave, and even out over some clams.

This is one of my favorite destinations when on the Oregon coast. It's best at low tide as you can access so much beach! Great adventure for the whole family.

The mini waterfall is very pretty. Hike up onto the old wagon road. (Very, very easy "hike" more like walk on the beach. I have 4 kids with me; 15, 13, 8 and a 6 month old baby in a pack.)

Great area to check out on the coast and show the kids something different they've maybe never seen.

Gorgeous. Go early to avoid the people.

beautiful! Only thing I would say is to pay attention to the tide if crossing the rocks to go to the beaches to the north. We ended up having to walk through knee deep water to get back across.

Nice little outing to stop at if you are passing through. People need to clean up after them selves trash and dog poopy bags scattered here and there.

Not exactly a trail, more like a walk on the beach, a very beautiful beach with a waterfall on it!

Worth the little walk.
