Great views of Indian beach, good for photography but trail is wrecked halfway through. You can't get to the beach from here.

Great hike. Though you cannot make it to Indian point right now you can still make it to the beach with few people.

Trail still closed but nice walk on the beach at low tide is worth it. Lot's of cool rock formations and a cool lighthouse to look at.

Absolutely beautiful breathtaking views. I went up here a few weeks ago to take some pictures as I have never been. If you like movies the restaurant from the 1980's movie "The Goonies" was filmed near the treeline here and the view of Haystack Rock from the south side of the park is where the kids pulled their bicycles over the hillside. The windy road on the drive up here is where Brand rode the little pink bicycle. Parts of Kindergarten Cop was filmed here too. A little north in the distance offshore of the pacific ocean is Tillamook Rock lighthouse. Beautiful view from the park. Was a little disappointed when I got here to find out part of the trail is closed due to erosion. Can't wait until it opens again because I want to hike it. There was a cougar sighting up here recently within the past year or so. Be careful and keep alert.

Amazing view but couldn't do the trail due to erosion from the storm causing the trail to be closed until further notice.
