Easy trail for all. I am a Tillamook native so I enjoy all the history that is shared along the way. Every time I go there are new additions.

Peaceful and pretty well kept. Some places damp/muddy, but why not, it's outdoors! No flowers in October

Great easy walking trail to the beautiful bay. It was a tad muddy in a few spots but wasn’t an issue

Trail is in good condition although there are lots of downed leaves. Be careful on the boardwalks as they are slippery when wet. Plenty of benches along the trail to stop and take a break. You can make this a short loop or hike all the way out to the bay, which is what I did. Round trip to the bay and back is a little over 2 miles. Easy trail great for kids.

Very well maintained. We loved the informative signs along the trail. We hiked at dusk and only saw 2 others on the trail.

It was the perfect mixture between manicured and natural. When I went it wasn’t super busy. Short and Beautiful!

HikingGreat!

Easy, relaxing, shady! Two small parking areas. Bathrooms were closed in early summer due to covid, they are back open and there is a decent port o potty about 3/4 the way in. I’ve been 4 times in a month and I liked it most when some tide was in as the water brought more bird watching. Never felt crowded which is a huge draw coming over from Portland. Perfect 2 miles to get exercise and let the mind wander with energy to do other coastal excursions after.

Nice easy trail for some quick exercise. I enjoyed the plentiful signage throughout the trail telling the history of the Tillimook area. Allow for time to read along the way.

Hiking

A perfect stroll. It is mostly shaded, paved part of the way with pavers, and the rest of the trail is well packed dirt. Loads of benches to rest and relax. The views of Tillamook Bay are spectacular. Would recommend for anyone with young children, the elderly and even someone with a wheelchair or scooter could navigate the trail.

Definitely a walk vs a hike and a man made path. Great for families or all kinds.

Well maintained, easy, level walk through the woods and to the bay. The path starts with pavers and transitions to gravel.

Easy short hike. Beautifully maintained. Great for any activity level as there’s MANY benches spread throughout if someone needs frequent rests. MANY! And a potty in the middle.
