I believe this stand of redwoods is the furthest north they go.

This trail is beautiful going right along the river. Very easy to maneuver and a great length.

I thought the trail and the hike were beautiful but I would not rate this as easy. As someone with a mild heart condition I look for easy rated trails. This trail has quite a climb and a lot of switchbacks. Switchbacks don't make it any easier to go uphill. I would personally consider this trail moderate due to the amount of climbing you are doing although it is a good length and a pretty walk.

This trail is currently inaccessible. Multiple washouts have chunks of road missing completely.

this trail is easy, we took our son (4) and daughter (5). they loved it.

Short walk but scenic.

Really short, and decent climb. Probably took five minutes to get up, but gave great views of the coast to the north, and slightly visible views of the coast to the south. Definitely worth the quick trip.

Absolutely love this one! Pictures do not do this place justice! Definitely worth the drive down from Washington!

Beautiful old growth, very quiet and peaceful.

What an amazing place to go hiking. The view is breathtaking. Definitely going back someday.

Fabulous trail! Very lush and many water crossings. Well-maintained. We log 2.8 miles in a hangman's noose configuration. The redwood nature trail loop had a gain of about 568 feet. Take it to the right for a gradual uphill or to the left for a steep uphill and gradual downhill. The interpretive markers start to the left. Both trails have interpretive markers with the one along the river being letters starting at the day use area the Redwood loop being numbers but the trailheads were out of brochures. Great place to come for a quick hike or just a stroll in the Redwoods and along the river!

Good loop trail. Great area. Good short climbs with places to rest an enjoy. Took us about 1 hour to hike

This was a hike in the forrest but following the road to get from Arch point viewpoint to another trail to get to secret beach. There is no reason to do this because it is not a very scenic trail and you can view Arch rock from the parking lot and then drive down to the secret beach trail.

Beautiful views!! The only thing I will say is for an amateur, like myself, it was very easy to veer off the trail....I’m not sure exactly what trails I was hiking but they were in the area and gorg! The kids (5&9) enjoyed the quick hike and views.

Beautiful and a must see. Go when it’s not busy. Plan to stop at all the viewpoints or even better walk the coast trail between them.

great hike with an amazing waterfall going through the loop. make sure to take the trail to the left when it comes to a T near the bridge (don't worry, you can wait to cross the bridge

This is a beautiful trail along the beautiful Oregon coast - definitely worth your time. The trail itself is narrow - not difficult but if it had been raining within the last few days the mud will make it difficult and a little risky to traverse if you don’t have good balance. Also, I’ll say that while there are markers on the trail, they are very easy to miss and with so many offshoots of the trail that lead to great viewpoints that you will want to take, I can see people getting lost easily. Pay close attention or download the offline map. Finally, while this listing states it’s great March through October I would recommend late March if March at all - while it’s beautiful in winter there is a lot of leafless trees that in certain would make the trail even more breathtaking if viewed when spring has sprung. April through October would be the best time to partake IMO.

Nice little loop that includes a small forest, a river, the beach and coastal wetland and grasses. Hard to find so much beauty so close and easy. In season there are salmon and steelhead in the river and good surf perch fishing in the ocean.

Very nice, be sure to do the loop through the redwoods.

Went in January 2017. Don't think it sees much action, but its a nice quiet looped trail for the dog and I.

Going south on the Oregon Coast trail from the Thunder Rock Cove pullout,the trail goes through forrest.At Natural Bridges there is a nice view.Continuing south it comes to open area above a cove.Further south the trail goes to another view area before dropping down to beautiful China Beach.

Going north from the Natural Bridge parking area the Oregon Coast trail goes through forrest,reaching the Thunder Rock Cove parking area shortly.In that stretch a side trail goes down to a view.

From the Natural Bridge viewpoint,the Oregon Coast trail continues south through forrest,then a opening above a cove.More trees and another parking area/viewpoint.South of that viewpoint area the Oregon Coast trail goes down to the north end of beautiful China Beach.

The Oregon Coast trail goes north(and south)from the Thunder Rock pull off.Going north the trail forks.Either way will go to Secret Beach,but going left at that fork goes down to Thunder Rock Cove and some very beautiful views before it rejoins and goes north to Secret Beach and other points to the north.

nice trails. quaint.

beautiful view!!

I had a great time here. Most of the beaches are a hike from the car, so they are less crowded and beautiful. There are a lot of stops, so I would pick 3 or so for the day. Here is a video of my time at Sam Boardman.

I'll have to do this one again. I couldn't figure out the trail. I saw that it's the one to the right of the parking lot, but then it just brings you to another parking lot. I saw a turn and it didn't look like it went anywhere. So I didn't get to see too many views. But what I got to see was still beautiful.
