Fun walk along the beach

Wonderful long walk on the beach with very little people, at least between 9am - 2pm on an April Sunday. Started the hike from Cape Lookout trailhead which gives you a 2.5 mile start downhill through some beautiful coastal forests. Worth it for sure! This part however is for strong hikers as the path coming back up is pretty hard. 45 minutes of straight up hill. The beach was just amazing for me and my dog. Perfect time to reflect on all things life while enjoying the coastal fresh air.

Grateful for the tip about the tides. We got back halfway between low and high tide and the water was already coming up.onto the rocks. Nice easy hike.

Trail is basically a long walk on the beach. As others have said, make sure you check the tide schedule before you go. Pretty drive to get there and long stretches of beach expanse makes it easy to let dogs run around to their hearts content off leash. But please be respectful and leash your dog(s) when nearby others.

If you're looking for a beach-combing walk with the welcomed feeling of eternity, this is it. And not just because it's a longish hike but because the view is endless while also never feeling the same. I went in September and I think autumn is the perfect time for this hike. It's not a typical autumn hike for color but the weather is just cooperative enough to probably be comfortable (warm and mostly sunny/dry), and just stormy enough to allow for interesting scenery and photographic opportunities. Check tide tables to be extra safe and allow you to walk on the hard-packed beach as opposed to hoofing it in the loose stuff - unless that's the challenge you want. I love this walk!

May 4, 2017 Awesome walk along the shore north of Cape Lookout SP. Replete with sand dollars, seals and Sandy plovers. The endless of the spit has a great view of the three arches, a group of sea stacks in the mouth of Netarts Bay. A beautiful day hike with ample opportunity for solitude

Hubby and I tried to do this trail after Cape Lookout this past weekend 2/12 and made it about 3 miles out before the spit was pretty much under water. Most of the beach was inaccessible with the tide and it being so rocky. I thought I might have gotten the wrong directions but GPS said I was in the correct area. We will attempt it in the summer.
