Surprisingly great - easy - hike. Nice view of Sandlake and native Oregon coast Forestlands. Take some snacks and picnic on the sand. Only downside is the sound of off-road vehicles at the nearby Sandlake sand dunes.

Really great, short hike. Family friendly. Take some water. Great viewpoints of Sand Lake, and the ocean beyond that. Lots of foliage, some of it edible (we picked huckleberries).

The foliage was pretty, but the hike was more like a walk. Too easy and the loop is confusing.

This was a great trek for all ages. With beautiful scenery all around and the sound of the ocean in the background it was a peaceful and happy hike. The bonus...In the spring there are TONS of huge rhododendrons blooming through out the entire walk

Nice trail for kids. We walked through sand lake when the tide was out . Beach access was tricky. But tons of eagles and wildlife.
