Easy hike with great views. Trail is in good shape. Saw two Bald Eagles!

Beautiful views

Easy well worth the walk for lighthouse lovers.

Beautiful trail I suggest adding the McKenzie trail to this for a workout.

Easy not moderate. Pretty view

Did 5.4 miles stitching together the different trails, with 1260 ft total gain. Nice rolling trails, good condition. I really liked the Coastal Forest Loop - old growth and beautiful views.

This was an historical and a safe easy walk. We talked to a park ranger along the path and she gave us maps of nearby hikes that weren't on All Trails at all. I'll post to those as we do them. We took six year old and a12 year old and they made it just fine. At the end is a small bay where it's quiet and beautiful. A good place to have lunch. An enjoyable day. Remember... what you bring in, you bring out.

Why is this rated moderate? Less than a mile and 100feet climb!

Easy hike with children ages 9 and older. Were able to do the lighthouse tour and visit the gift shop. Very enjoyable and would recommend!

Easy walk to share with your friends!

4 stars because it is a spectacular view. Super easy. I carried 2 Chihuahuas out and back. Fun hour exploring and seeing remnants of structures from the past being slowly erased by nature.

Beautiful! A little steep at one part and another 0.4 mile to the interpretive center. Don’t forget your water!

Nice and easy trail. I’d consider it a little on the technical side given all the roots and the amount of slippery mud.

Beautiful views, great for all ages. My daughter loved it.

Beautiful views and nice hike in combination with Bells View hike too!

Beautiful views on a clear day but very windy! Nice that the trail is all paved so no muddy feet.

Fun hike to the lighthouse with husband and 9 year old son - highly recommend as a family outing.

Super gorgeous winter day. Sun was out and made the views incredible. The trail was a little muddy in some places so make sure you’re prepared for that. We went down to the little beach area too! Again, muddy but worth it!

Easy trail for beautiful views!

Great area to explore!

Beautiful hike going up, and a nice view at the top. Unfortunately you cannot go inside, so that was a bummer. Still worth the climb, though.

This trail was easy and had plenty of views of the beaches down below, as well as of the light house. Along the way there was a volunteer who was very helpful in explaining where everything was in the area and pointing me in the right direction of where I wanted to go. Once at the interpretive center, it was cheap to get in and full of interesting exhibits. I would highly recommend this hiking trail for anyone.

Lovely area to explore for the whole family.

Great views.

Short hike lighthouse is currently under construction so no point in going if your looking to get a photo of it at this time

We are absolute beginners, both having lost a lot of weight and still working on upping our activity level. I don't know if I would rate this hike "easy" for middle-aged duffers like us, but it was easy enough. We didn't make it all the way to MacKenzie Head, but that was because of mud on the trail, not because it had gotten too tough for us. I would do it again. But bring bug repellent! The mosquitos were nasty.
