Great beach walk and sunset.

Be super careful with the wire retaining wall. My kid slipped on the rocks and cut their arm on the wire sticking out. Sliced the skin right off! We have done this hike multiple times but it needs some maintenance.

A great way to see endangered snowy plovers scuttling along the beach. Just leave your pooch behind if you plan on this because dogs aren’t allowed on protected plover habitat (for good reason; the birds nest in the dunes). Otherwise, stick to the interior trails and enjoy the diversity of wide open wetlands and cloistered forested stroll.

Keep in mind that until September 15th the far north part of the beach is closed to protect nesting birds. This is still a great little walk and awesome beach.

It’s been about 3 weeks since we were here. This trail was super fun an absolutely beautiful! It was cool to experience and observe so many different ecosystems all at once. It made for a nice change in terrain throughout the entire hike as well to keep things fresh. We tacked on an extra mile by following the beach south and catching the trail again at the next numbered emergency marker. Be sure to read signs and respect the Snowy Plover nesting grounds. Trail is nicely sectioned so you can make a small trip to the beach or a full 3-4 mile loop. We arrived mid day and we only saw a handful of people all afternoon. Some signage was vague so keep your map handy or take a photo of the trail sign.

This is a beautiful trail through the dense forests to the rocky beach. Absolutely beautiful. The way back is straight uphill.

It is easier to go up along the side closest to the ocean and then keep climbing to the top of the dune. There are different views along that way also.

I’d recommend this trail! Didn’t meet anyone till at the end, on the beach. It was quiet with lovely weather. Only marked down because there weren’t any markings or signs on trail at several forks or places trail divided.

Stroller not approved. This trail could use a little grooming as there were a few places where the bushes were a bit overgrown but manageable. Most of the hike is forest which is okay. It gets to a point where you have to go down such a vertical drop that they put down wire to help with grip. The wire actually helped a ton. Going back was a butt burner for sure. Not sure if I’d go again since the cape lookout viewpoint trail is so much prettier.

Long descent and climb but well worth it to get to the beach. In the woods the entire time other than one spot which has a bench as a nice rest area. We recorded the hike to be about 3.8 miles. Overall moderate difficulty.

trail was not busy on this Tuesday morning, only passed 2 hikers the whole way. moderate difficulty with some roots to navigate. my 8 and 11 year old kids made it to the beach and back without to much whining. some slippery spots on the mud and rocks but all in all the trail was in good condition. get there early when we came out the parking lot was pretty full because it is the parking for three trailheads.

it's a river not a trail. when all trails comes out with all water then it might warrant a higher rating

Lovely trail, some great views along the way, not that many people even on a Sunday around noon! Rewarded with the beautiful beach all to yourself at the end!

This was one our favorite hikes while visiting Oregon. We had only a few hours so we chose the South Trail opposed to the Lookout Trail. We hiked early on a Monday morning and came across very few hikers. Beautiful beach to walk at the bottom, this is a don’t miss hike.

This is one of the most beautifully maintained and beautiful trails I’ve been on. If you get there early it’s virtually a beach all to yourself. This hike will not disappoint. It is not difficult closer to moderate

Few places you have to duck, lots of Roots. Went for a trail run and it was fine but had to go a little slower. Beach is gorgeous so definitely worth the short hike

We took the south trail and had a great time! The trail comes out to a Beach. Perfect time for a break, snack, or longer walk. Trail was mostly in the forest which add coverage from sun and rain. We had a bit of a mist around us, but didn’t get super wet until we hit the beach. Hiked 7/9/19.

My daughter and I liked this easy trail. It was especially nice since we escentuly had the trail to ourselves. We met the very friendly trail hosts near the end of our hike who gave us so.e birding tips and birding list.

I took the two beach trail this time so keep heading to the signs that say to the beach and then you to get a long beach walk Miles of beach if you would like

Always a fun little scramble... did it twice this weekend. a good workout with beautiful views! This evening it was VERY windy at the top, whipping the sand around like crazy, but yesterday closer to 11am it was amazing! We even spotted some whales from the top and ran across a few deer on the way up!

My happy place.

I love this trail just about more than anything. It’s just so short and simple with varied flora and fauna. The rhododendrons were blooming in all their glory, and there was a little snake sunbathing on the trail. Highly recommend.
