Did this hike yesterday, or at least part of it. Also climbed a big rock at the beach. Here's a video I recorded from the top: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxUUlA9w2Qk

Beautiful hike through the trees with awesome views of the Ocean

Beautiful hike along the buff overlooking the ocean.

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.

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.

I've grown up on this beach. It is usually not too crowded. there is a nice tide pool area to the right.

Nice walk with the dog

Nice little trail in the woods that few know about until now. Hadn't been there in a couple of years so did a little grooming on the way. Some beautiful areas on the river that is very fishable. This trail is just below the recent Chetco Fire that burned 191,000+ acres just upriver.

Nice little area that gets some summer use but hardly anyone during the off season. My lab loves it because she gets to play in the river when the flow is slow enough. There was a couple of trees down but easily crossed under today. The river bar here is much longer than what we did that can be driven and gets fished a lot during the salmon season. The tree that you see in my pic that they dug a trough under would be good to leave especially for the kids that do the trail.

Great views of the north jetty and the mouth of the Chetco river on the way in. An added bonus was an Osprey nest site on top of a large prominent rock in the water along the edge. The ospreys in this nest produced 2 chicks this year. Nice little beach/rocky area that few people know about. You have to go in through a gate that looks private but is not, so enjoy! There is pretty good fishing off the jetty and parts of the beach.

Nice little popular beach in town. Perhaps the most people I've seen on it was this morning. Rocky in places but beautiful views... Chetco Point is to the south and the north ends in rock formations that you can't get by. Surprised to see a 1/2 dozen kids swimming this morning at about 10:30. There is something on this beach that makes my dogs scratch at themselves for weeks at a time. There is a water treatment plant nearby... This is the only local beach I won't take them to again. Doubtful I'll hike it again but wanted show others where it is.

Eerie is the word for this hike today. We are in the middle of the Chetco Bar Fire and it's pretty dark and gloomy. The trail is good and you can see by the pics the awesome views from above. You can see the lines in my pics are the sky full of smoke rolling out from the river and meeting blue sky Not much blue anywhere near us..... Hopefully I'll never see our beautiful home area affected like this again.

Beautiful beach just north of Brookings! I did it on a high tide today so was much shorter than if you catch it when it's low. So many beautiful rock formations... A little overcast today so it cut down on the views. One of many places close to home that I hike with my lab.

Would be a 5 except part of the trail is next to 101... Usually more beautiful than today due to the marine layer. Still the prettiest hike I've done on the Oregon Coastal Trail to date and I've done it several times.. Awesome views of the not so secret Secret Beach. On a sunny day it looks like you are in the orient or on a pacific island somewhere. Highly recommend this one.

Beautiful views

Great views and somewhat technical terrain depending on your speed.

Great stretch of trail with the exception of being so close to 101 and hearing and seeing cars so much but this stretch of coast that I live near is incredible

scenic driving

Beautiful hike along the Southern Oregon Coast. Great ocean viewpoints along the trail.

I have only done a portion of this trail because every time I get on it, I find myself taking off from the main line and enjoying the connecting trails. The weather in Brookings is always a bit warmer than other local coastal towns. Great views!

Excellent if you hike with your family or alone. Not difficult. Beautiful views! Easy access from Hwy 101 at many points. Recommend you take a camera... you won't want to forget this hike.

This is a beautiful coastal hike. There is such an array of folage along the trail that sometimes you feel your in a vineyard, or a jungle. The views of the coast are breathtaking. This trail is often shared with runners and after every couple of miles it intersects with another trail access point from hwy 101. This is a great family hike
