Between Whales head beach road and Indian Sands viewpoint road on Highway 101 there is small parking area outside a guardrail,on the west side of 101.The Oregon Coast trail comes right through here.A few hundred yards north on the Oregon Coast trail a side trail takes off and goes over to Indian Sands and also out onto a penninsula.The side trail goes downhill to junction.Go to left and end up at the end of a penninsula.Terrific!Go to the right and you will end up at Indian Sands.Any of the paths that go north will end up at Indian Sands.

There is a place to park just off of hwy.101 on whaleshead beach road.on the right there.Start up the Oregon Coast trail going north.In about 8 minutes(just past a green bench)a side trail takes off on the left and goes out to a very scenic view point,one of the finest of the entire Oregon coast.

Beautiful mossy forrest with peekaboo coast look out points. Has a hard time finding the path for the second loop bc my battery died and trails were well marked. Quick on the way back too.

Parts of the hike are beautiful with views but a lot of it is pretty drab forest but definitely worth seeing. Living close it's one of my go to short hikes.
