Many loop options with a total of about 5 miles of trails available. This will follow a figure-8 route. This is a fun figure eight loop that starts at a nice vista over the dunes and Sutton creek, then follows the creek to return via some huge dunes. It's a nice short walk through the woods on the Oregon Coast.

As beautiful as dunes can be, however 3 stars because: 1) some benches are too tall: probably, the soil settled with time; 2) the dunes block the view of the ocean; 3) "Warning! Mountain lion is active in this area" as posted in the kiosk by the bridge leading from the loop north-east to Alder dunes. "Is active", not merely "sighted."

Beautiful trees on the short loop from the end of the road. Several benches to rest on, but at this time of year too damp. Many roots require close attention when walking.

Camped in the nearby developed campsite. Hiked out to the beach twice. Was incredibly peaceful. Encountered almost no people. Watched an amazing sunset in a hidden beach. Nothing like this in the city!

Easy to find. Great 5 mile round trip hike. Diverse trails with interesting scenery along the way. Luckily, my Trail book told us where the trails were once we emerged in the campground.
