Great hike, but REALLY muddy! Steep staircase-like assent, but don't let it stop you. The climb is worth it when you finally reach the clearing and the incredible views. Saw several elk and an eagle during our hike.

Great scenery and vegetation! Muddy areas made it slippery at times. Not difficult at all

Oh boy, the view at the top makes this hike so worth it! We went in July 2016 and it was slightly cloudy at the top but still beautiful!

One of our favorite! Great view at the top the first 20 min of the worst after that it's great!

I did Cascade Head a second time yesterday and it was seriously the most beautiful day to be out there. The trail looked a lot better than I remembered from last year. Once at the top, the clouds started to come in but the sun was still beaming. It was amazing!

Still very muddy through the forest, poles helped. Once we pop out onto the headland meadow, and amazing coastal and estuary views, the path was drier. There were even elk on the headland!

Great hike, starting out on a trail next to a neighborhood road to the old trail head. View point is beautiful on a clear day. Can't see much from the summit though
