I hiked this on 11/4/17 with my dog. The views are definitely limited. If you want to be deep in the forest, near the ocean, with no crowd, this is a great hike. Here is a video of my time at Cummins Creek Trail:

Hiked this on Sunday 10/8/17. Pretty trail- mixed growth trees, huge sword ferns and Oregon grape.
Trail starts of wide, graveled, and leisurely. You reach the loop about 1.3miles in. Once you hit the loop the (left fork) trail becomes single track. I saw two groups of mushroom gathers and two bikers, no other hikers. With a detour to the Cummins Basin viewpoint my hike totaled 6.8 miles; with 1188 vertical ascent.

Did the loop clockwise, great but watch for bikers. saw a spotted owl about 1/2 mile from the trailhead, awesome.

Well maintained, quiet trail. After the first mile, it climbs quite a bit and will get your heart going...but it's definitely not a hard trail. Take your time and enjoy the awesome trees and flowers :) Best part for me was that I didn't see anyone until the last 10 minutes. So nice to get away from the coastal crowds!

So I started at Cummins Creek Trail, then split and went up the Cummins Ridge Trail. That was super steep climb, but then towards the end really opened up and there was a great view of everything. See the picture I posted to experience the view. Easy to find, big parking lot, little muddy but that's what boots are for!

The meadow was spectacular and the view was beautiful. A nice spring west coast day.

We did this on the return side from cooks ridge trail. It was all down hill for us but can imagine it would would be a tough trek up. be sure to take the .1 mile spur to see the Cummings creek basin. fabulous view of the ridges and the ocean.
