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

Road was closed and park, but we went anyway. Amazing, we didn't do till the end because land slide so we couldn't passed. But first half is fixed now they are fixing second half...

We parked on the southern end of the trail and hiked out to Ecola Point, with a nice picnic area and a full panorama of Cannon Beach, Haystack Rock and the Coast Range to Indian Beach. Absolutely spectacular view and one of most photographed on the Oregon coast. This 2-mile trail connects Ecola point to horseshoe shaped Indian Beach, and a six mile trail leads further on to Tillamook Head. The 1 mile stretch of trail between the main bluff top picnic area and Indian Beach is really rewarding, passing thru old forests with views of ocean and beaches below. This is a NOT TO MISS hike on the Oregon coast!

The trail is closed as is the road. We walked the road. Beautiful walk, mostly paved. Great views at the end and a trail down to beach.

As of February 21st 2017, the route is closed due to a landslide taking out a bridge area, making the area impassable. still great hike and scenery from the cliff tops, but no beach access.

went with our 2.5 year old & 7 year old daughter. my husband took turns having our youngest on our shoulders going up the trail but she did half of it on the way down. my oldest did the entire trail. speaking of the trail itself, it was absolutely beautiful & a great work out while going up the trail. the clatsop loop down was pretty easy. there's views along the route. its definitely worth it and I'll most likely go again!

The park was closed due to a forecasted storm and some downed trees but we parked down the road and went anyway. Of course it added a few miles (like 7) but it was a great trip up to Hikers Camp!

Great hike, wonderful views, and definitely hard at times but the views were well worth it! Bring your camera!
