Very scenic / mossy / green trail along the creek. We stopped to take a lot of pictures on the way up. Cool waterfalls to stop at along the way. Ending is a little anti-climatic at a trailhead crossroads.

super pretty and just be aware it is steep. but 100% worth it

Lots of mud!! Cathedral tree is beautiful but getting to it from Column is a little treacherous. All downhill on the way in and all up hill on the way out. I would call this an easy/moderate. No switchbacks, but steep inclines and declines.

Fun trail, pretty muddy but I was prepared for that. Didn’t do the whole trail but will come back again for a full run at it.

Some small muddy spots so waterproof shoes are helpful but it was a beautiful day and a great hike with lots of ups and downs.

Short, peaceful trail up to great viewpoint.

Beautiful trail, so green! Muddy, due to rain but gorgeous! I’d do it again!

Beautiful short hike to the Astoria Column. Winter conditions are wet and muddy, windy at the Column.

Very beautiful! I started at the top by the Astoria Column. The trail is aptly named, as the tree truly looks like it could be a cathedral. This was a steep trail in some parts, but it’s extremely shorty and pretty easy.

So nice I've hiked it twice! Beautiful hike! Mostly wooded with beautiful openings to creek & waterfall views. Loved the trail more once I passed the fishery. That's when it gets really pretty. Its almost 8 miles if you park outside gnat creek campground at the trailhead, 7.74 miles round trip.

Easy hike, just a nice walk on one of the possibly last good days at the beach...hoping for a few more beach hikes. Very relaxing and needed time away. Definitely recommend.

Very interesting hike if you start at the campgrounds, after a little over a mile hike through gorgeous, mossy forest you come to a highway crossing then a short jaunt through a woodsy area. After this you cross a lawn between two houses and through the parking lot of the fish hatchery to continue to Upper Gnat Creek trail. Barrier Falls is close & then not too far from there will be a special forest find! There is a short loop at the end of the trail. About 6.5 miles total based on tracker. Saw some oyster mushrooms, a couple reishi, red belt conks & tons of lobsters! Took us about 2hrs with a 30 min lunch break. Next time need to find Gnat Creek Falls! Would rate 4.5☆s and more of an easy-moderate hike

This trail is beautiful , short and good for children and the elder.

absolutely beautiful, but definitely a lot of uphill - would not classify as easy.

Beautiful and peaceful trail. Adorable field nice by the Cathedral Tree. Has some steep areas but nothing too difficult. Love it for its convenience and peace.
