An easy short walk through some dense forest to a wide open space, and/or down to the beach. Gorgeous views! Lincoln City to the north and Fogarty Creek Beach to the south. Nice for a picnic or watching whales!

This was a really great hike but I would rate it as moderate.

I wish I could give it a 3.5.

I took my family on the hike because it was rated as easy; but due to the elevation gain and the rocky terrain I’d call it a moderate hike. It wasn’t a problem for me but my less experienced family struggled, which I hadn’t wanted them to. A moderate would have convinced me to take them elsewhere.

That said....the trail scenery was beautiful, with a number of nice views to the ocean. There were dark, shaded areas as well as sections in the sun. Being in a logging area, there were sections with the forest cut down.

I would recommend recording the hike with the app, and using a charged phone to track your progress. There are many logging roads and intersections, and tracking your progress can help you stay on the right path.

This would make a nice training trail for a cross country runner....but I’d advise leaving your dog at home as the big and often sharp rocks could hurt paws.

Good luck!

Super short little trail...if you can even call it that! Great views though, I got to see a couple of whales playing around, it was amazing!

It's very short and not for hiking. Fishing was ok here. Best part is its beauty as great spot for whale watching.

We have taken our young children on this trail for years. They love the forested "fairyland" path to the beach. Great views from the top and a fantastic beach on the bottom.

Loved the stroll. We were thrilled to see two bald eagles at the crest of the trail.

not a trail but a short hike to watch the waves crash on the cliffs and rocks

It was cool. Small but pretty enjoyable for agate hunting.

Like the last review said, this isn't a trail it's a great place to hang out on the beach. It looks like I found the local surf spot ;)

This isn't really a trail....it is a bunch of huge rocks that are along the beach. It's a great spot to wander around or sit and enjoy the waves....but not a trail.
