It is a good hill to work out. Views from other parts of the Newport Light House Park are definitely more scenic.

Pretty mild trail, well maintained. Cool view at the top, open your geocaching app while you go, there’s one on the route. Lots of berries around to snack on but make sure you know which ones are which.

Gravel trail, a little boring but the view at the top is nice. My toddler was able to walk it just fine

The view from the top is great, but the trail is kind of boring. The trail next to the lighthouse is much better all around.

This trail is a walk up a gravel road, beautiful views at the top of Newport and Agate beach. Not easy on the paws. As previously said: $7 entrance fee unless you have the Oregon Coast Pass. Get your money's worth by taking in all the trails at this park plus the lighthouse.

Park at the gate/trailhead and this is a pretty easy gentle uphill on a road with awesome views of the Agate Beach area on both sides of Yaquina Head all the way to Otter Crest to the North and Newport to the south. Nice afternoon walk with the dogs. (Keep them leashed.) Well maintained area with interpretive displays and restrooms at the nearby visitor's center.

Awesome view of the beaches of Newport, the surrounding hills and the Pacific Ocean at the top of the trail.
