Beautiful area and a great hike! However, this full trail is not dog friendly. We had to turn around halfway through because dogs are not allowed in Shore Acres State Park. Still, it was a nice 4 mile hike (out and back from Sunset Beach).

Kinda difficult to get down to the beach. A local guided me by entering a woods with a "No Trespassing, Private Property" sign next to it.

Beautiful hike. Well maintained trails.

Did this one 2 years ago with my wife on an anniversary date.

The map on here needs to be updated a little. They have done an expansion that allows for a full circle hike. You start at the trailhead and walk for about .3 miles and come to a sign that shows you have a mile loop in front of you. If you go to the left, you’ll have to watch for the trail after the long bridge. My kids were outgoing this trip and stayed were they thought he trail was, but there is a wooden fence, like the one at the entrance, that marks the trail. They were headed towards the open dunes I think.

Hard to find access...

Great firmly packed sand beach near the end of Seven Devils road. Actually found this one by accident looking for Whiskey Run... Nice little creek and big beach the dogs really enjoyed

Awesomely beautiful beach that gets a lot of use. As small as it is it has 3 parking lots. There were a few kids wading, paddle boarders and kayakers there today. It is very protected with a reef out front. The water was shallow so it's probably warmer than most places on the Oregon Coast.

9/30/17 • Perfect day for this hike, early Fall brought cool air, blue skies and no wind. I parked at Sunset Beach on the South parking lot, the trail head leaves from the parking lot, over a bridge and up a hill. I left at 1:00 and returned 3:30 and I did the complete trail. The trails have a lot of roots across them, be careful. I would rate this trail easy until you get the the end loop which most people probably skip but I found the most rewarding. The first 3 miles are fairly flat once you crest the top of the first hill, and follows the shoreline with great views and smells of the ocean. 3 miles in there is a sea lion viewing area and right after that you cross across the road and the trail gets steep. I had trekked most of the trails along the path but never did all of them at once. I wore one backpack and took 32 oz. of water, banana and cliff bar. Towards the end of the loop there is an old home foundation that people have went in and graffiti and I found a cache with people's names which I signed. My phone was unable to connect so keep that in mind. Thanks for reading! ✌️

One that was almost forgotten. Did this one with my wife on an anniversary trip 2 years ago. A beautiful area.

Very nice place to relax and look out at the ocean. I could hear the sea lions ♥️

Beautiful loop that's mostly unpaved with amazing views of the ocean. Love this spot.

Neat way to learn about the ecosystem of the area. They do tours certain times of the year to teach kids about the types of plants animals and fungus that grows. Also a nice walk.

The most gorgeous hike around the bay. Panoramic views are spectacular.
