13 of us from two hiking groups hiked this trail today. Not far north of Florence, Oregon and a short distance to trailhead. Road off Hwy 101 & is well paved 1 mile up and then gravel with just a couple ruts for two miles to trailhead. Bathroom at trailhead. Corals, hitching posts & water tub for horses. Trail was recently maintained, well marked with maps, etc. Beautiful hike with various trees, a couple creeks to cross, benches to sit, views to see beaches, evidence of elk and possibly bear and there is a meadow & bench to stop for lunch. I would definitely hike here again.
