Great trail... yeah it's got mud. It's Oregon. We passed several people on the trail in flip flops. Lol, again it's Oregon. Next rip out to the PNW I will backpack the entire Lewis and Clark Trail. Thanks Oregon!

Did the hike and it was beautiful! Very muddy and a few fallen trees but just amazing!

A very simple trail though if you do it counter clockwise be prepared to do a constant 1+ mile uphill which is extremely tedious and annoying but at least it will always be in the shade. Best to do it clockwise, if you want it to be easier.

Beautiful views on the way back down. The way up was beautiful but don't expect to see the ocean.

Loved this spot, weather was perfect in August, saw a couple elk, heavy vegetation and gorgeous views and overlooks, plus this spot was the back drop to the Goonies and last scene in point break!

Awesome short hike. Challenging but fun. Great views of Cannon Beach and Indian Beach. Lots of surfers to watch. Need moderate endurance to enjoy this hike!

This is a great hike with gorgeous views! There were not too many people on the trail when we were there which was awesome! The terrain was not too difficult, but not so easy that it was boring.

Awesome trail. Got rained on, but that is normal for the coast. we counted 30 slugs, one yellow finch, one snail, and one fawn while on the trail.

A tough slog uphill at the beginning (aka a good workout). Beach and lighthouse viewpoints were lovely. The concrete bunkers definitely added intrigue.
