We mistook this trail for the Cummings Creek Trail to the north near Cape Perpetua, but once we were there we decided to do it anyway. We started it from the Strawberry Hill side and worked our way East, and it is very shaded and has a lot of beauty to offer. We saw a large mommy elk and her baby which was a wonderful surprise. However, about 3 + miles in the overgrowth got to be too much for our bare legs and my son and father got scratched up pretty good. It has been three days and he still has them. When we got to the part where there was nothing but over growth and spider webs, my 14 year old son had enough. If one is wearing pants it would have helped a lot.

This trail is clearly not used often and it had not a soul in sight the entire time until when we had come back, and it was a gentleman who hadn't even gone as far as we did (maybe a 1/4 of the distance). I think the shrinking trail got him.

It is a nice hike that the whole family can enjoy.

Well maintained, quiet trail. After the first mile, it climbs quite a bit and will get your heart going...but it's definitely not a hard trail. Take your time and enjoy the awesome trees and flowers :) Best part for me was that I didn't see anyone until the last 10 minutes. So nice to get away from the coastal crowds!

Gorgeous vistas. Historical informational placards. Path is wide, gravel, and uphill but quite easy. It is a State Park, so there is a parking fee or use State Park Pass.

great views of something awesome PNW coast!

It's a trail I hiked alone while visiting some friends. Your basic sand, dunes, and ocean. Nothing exciting, but when the weather is nice, it's better than staying home.
