Stunning! Must stop here but if you do make sure it's LOW tide! Otherwise you can get stuck in a cave or worse, swelted out to sea by a sneaker wave! No joke, I got trapped in one until the tide receded back. Very dangerous!

Gorgeous spot along the coast. It’s worth going when the tide is low or you’ll miss the best spot! Took our pups & they loved running around! We were here late Sept.

Great little hike with beautiful views. This hike is very easy and is mostly all on the beach.

It was a really easy one that both kids and dogs loved. We barely made it in time because of high tide.

Easy walk over to a cool spot with caves and a small waterfall. Go around low tide or prepare to get wet!

Hug Point is beautiful. Access to beach from parking lot is not very good. So beware if you have any physical limitation issues. The caves on the north end of beach which are only accessed at low tide ( and you need to pay attention) are magical! If you like to sing, amazing sound! The small waterfall and and the road cut out of “Hug Point” add a lot to this wonderful beach. There are picnic tables off the parking lot in the tall Douglas Firs. Enjoy! Very busy in the summer.

Beautiful! Make sure to go at low tide, if you want to explore more in the caves bring a headlamp. Wasn’t too packed but definitely was a popular spot. Tons of jellyfish were washing up when we were there!

This is absolutely a beach walk... otherwise ‘no trail’, but one of the prettiest I’ve seen yet! Be sure to visit during low tide!

As others have stated, there's no trail here. It is a beach walk. Great place to explore but you need to go during low tide. I preferred Crescent Beach Trail in Ecola State Park to this so if you're trying to decide, hope this helps. Beach was beautiful thought.

Not so much of a hike as it is just a nice walk on the beach, but it is BEAUTIFUL! Caves, waterfalls, beautiful rocky cliffs, tidepools, and cool little history/back story. Our kids had a ton of fun running ahead to see if a cave awaited around the next corner. Pack a lunch and beach toys and make it a day! We will be back

Good place to stretch legs and just hang out on the beach. If you go during low tide, you can explore some small caves, see a small waterfall and old road built in the rocks (just read history of Hug point before). We visited this beach aroung 2 pm - seems like a good time, but feel free to check tide schedule.

Visited hug point with my 2 and 4 year olds. We all loved it! Had a blast exploring sea caves and tide pools. Climbed up the water fall and used the boulders as a natural playground. One of the most beautiful beaches on the Oregon coast!

We had a wonderful time. Blue skies, very few people, tides were low and so surreal to stand where so many original settlers once maneuvered their wagons. If you don’t know the history of this point I say for sure look it up previous to going. We are sooo glad we did, it added to the ambiance of the hike!! We can’t wait to return with family. Also great amazing waterfall on the beach!!!

Loved this beach, must go back when the tide is low so I can go around the point to the waterfall.

It’s not much of a hike. It just feels like you’re climbing on rocks you shouldn’t be climbing on. It’s beautiful once you’re on the rocks it’s a 5 star view, but for hiking maybe 3 stars.

Not really a hike a fun place to stretch legs and have lunch. It is the beach so it is slick and rocky and places. If you really want to explore you are going to get wet and be aware of the tide you can get stranded!

Very beautiful view at sunset. Bring water-proof shoes. A little slippery.

Not clearly marked...not sure if the "hike" is considered just walking along the beach or the primitive trails. We couldn't go the beach route due to the tide so we tried the trail. It was VERY overgrown so much that we had to turn around. We did have some very pretty view on the short trail we were able to do & could see the waterfall from the top.

This route isn't clear. From the map it appears to simply be a walk along the beach. When Mom and I went, it was not possible to walk past the first beach because the tide blocked the way. Instead, we wandered on the primitive trails along the cliffs above the beach. If some of those trails were marked better and cleared of brush they would form a better route for this "hike." The exploration was still enjoyable.

First beach was crowded, but as you hike north crowds thin out. Interesting caves and little waterfall. Once you get around the point, you’ll have lots of beach to explore w/o crowds. Take your shoes off and get your feet wet!
