Nice beach, Haystack Rock is a beautiful sight to see, but a bit busy.

Easy beach stroll with views of sea critters and rock formations. Due to it being such a popular spot, Its almost more fun to go when the weather is ugly.

I liked it. A little too touristy that takes away from the beauty of the place but I don't feel like it was a waste of time. Worth seeing.

We walked two and a half miles down the beach at low tide. Got a chance to see the tide pools around Haystack Rock. Happy to see Friends of Haystack Rock working to keep the uneducated from trampling over the fragile ecosystem. A beautiful day.

Cannon Beach is one of my favorite places in Oregon. Haystack Rock is beautiful, the tide-pooling is fun, and the beach is great. A perfect spot to enjoy with family.

Nice beach, we had to visit because we are "Goonies" fans and that's what Goonie fans do.

It was an easy trail to hike with the family, even younger children. If you enjoy tide pools and hiking along the beach this is definitly the trail for you. When climbing on the rocks do not have your back to the ocean. Be sure to keep a eye on the tide or you could get caught by high tide and stuck on the rock.
