The Oregon Coast trail going north from Indian Sands comes to highway 101 north of the Indian Sands viewpoint road.Walk along the 101 back to that parking area.Down at the viewpoint of the archway at Indian Sands,look for a trail to the LEFT GOING down,then crossing a good spring.Continue south ,briefly going through some trees,then go right through a cut and continue south to the south end of the Indian Sands area.Enjoy one the great scenes of North America! Absolutely riveting! Takes about five minutes from view point of the archway to the view south.

The oregon coast trail going north of Indian sands comes near highway -101 .from there walk along 101 back to the Indian sands parking area.Down at the view of the archway,look for a trail(on the LEFT),going down and crossing a good spring.After going through trees briefly,turn right through a cut and continue south.At the south end of the Indian sands area(you will know when you are there) is one of the great scenes of North America! Absolutely riveting!From the view of the archway,it takes about 5 minutes to reach the south end of the Indian Sands area.

I tried to follow the red trail that is provided, and I got lost on the way back. I could have just done it wrong, but the trail isn't well marked. That being said, its an amazing trail. One of the more natural ones I've been on. It's pretty narrow, so I'd recommend wearing pants and closed toe shoes to protect your legs. I wore shorts and Chacos and was fine, but it could make it more enjoyable for those who like more protection. I also recommend venturing out on rocks. It's gorgeous and the rock is sturdy. Take side trails and really explore the area. It's GORGEOUS!

This hike made me want to go bake to previous 4 stars and demote them to 3s, it was that much better! It's a short loop but has lots of opportunity to veer off side paths and additional viewpoints as well as good spots to play in the sand with kids for a while. I would definitely come back to this trail and allow more time and bring lunch to hang a while.

Very unexpected find.....a beach that starts in the woods and yes, small shells in the forest. Just a few. Interesting little easy hike. I've done it several time but the last time was in August.

This is a fun easy hike, Being that I live in the area I like to go here to catch the sunsets. Bring a headlamp though for the walk out as it gets dark quick.
