You'll want to spend an afternoon at this wonderful park. From the viewing area you'll see many seabirds including cormorants, murres, and maybe even puffins. There is a beautiful shoreline to explore.

it's is NOT a loop. it is down-n-up. it is narrow and frequently steep. it is 100% downhill so it's 100% uphill. there are only 2 or 3 places you can see the water or have any view at all beyond the greenery immediately around you. it was slick enough in places that i traversed sections on my butt. best of all, it was closed before you got to the beach.

My wife and I have done this hike a few times. It's very easy and relaxing. There are outstanding views too. The lighthouse is pretty cool too.

Short walk down to Cape Meares lighthouse, some amazing views of the ocean and coastline. Also a really cool tree called the "Octopus Tree" is located nearby. Fun and easy trail

Short trek down to the lighthouse with an amazing view; and if you're lucky an informative inside tour.
