Lone Ranch beach is by far my most favorite beach in Brookings (with the exception being Secret Beach!). It’s waaaaaay less crowded than Harris and by far prettier in my opinion. You still get the sweeping beach with the gorgeous sea stacks. And you have the added plus of the gorgeous hike up to Cape Ferrelo. Make sure to start the hike in the wooded tree area that follows the little stream that empties out onto the beach. Sometimes the entrance to this trail isn’t accessible in early spring when the river is high. But if the river is low enough you can cross it and take the hike. Really great views at the top and a nice spot for lunch on a non-windy sunny day. Love this hike!

Tried from Lone Ranch picnic area. Found the trailhead (a bit past restroom building on the right) but it was flooded and couldn’t cross. Was able to make it from the Cape Ferrelo viewpoint.

Hard to find the start of the trail. We had to cross a small stream and got our feet/shoes soaked. Beautiful view. Easy walk. Kind of overgrown, narrow trail.

Did this hike yesterday, or at least part of it. Also climbed a big rock at the beach. Here's a video I recorded from the top: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxUUlA9w2Qk

Eerie is the word for this hike today. We are in the middle of the Chetco Bar Fire and it's pretty dark and gloomy. The trail is good and you can see by the pics the awesome views from above. You can see the lines in my pics are the sky full of smoke rolling out from the river and meeting blue sky Not much blue anywhere near us..... Hopefully I'll never see our beautiful home area affected like this again.

Great stretch of trail with the exception of being so close to 101 and hearing and seeing cars so much but this stretch of coast that I live near is incredible

I have only done a portion of this trail because every time I get on it, I find myself taking off from the main line and enjoying the connecting trails. The weather in Brookings is always a bit warmer than other local coastal towns. Great views!

Excellent if you hike with your family or alone. Not difficult. Beautiful views! Easy access from Hwy 101 at many points. Recommend you take a camera... you won't want to forget this hike.

This is a beautiful coastal hike. There is such an array of folage along the trail that sometimes you feel your in a vineyard, or a jungle. The views of the coast are breathtaking. This trail is often shared with runners and after every couple of miles it intersects with another trail access point from hwy 101. This is a great family hike
