This is a beautiful trail, very moderate just be careful of the roots! Gorgeous oceans views and a good deal of wildlife (rabbits and salamanders, slugs, etc). All the parking lots are closed and the trail is as well but that didn’t stop me. Park your car on the side of the road and hike! Outside is where we are safest during these times.

Nice, easy hike to the beach. Love the cove and waterfall. Lots of surfers too to watch!

Isn’t much of a hike (very short) but the views make it 5-star for sure. Make sure to watch your step

Amazingly scenic hike and my first coastal hiking experience! Not a hard hike at all. Went on during the beginning of March with my friend, her boyfriend, and their sweet dog Buddy. Take BOOTS, and preferably, some that are easy to clean. Trust me, you will thank yourself. As flawless and cool as this hike is, it is MUDDY and there are water puddles. For that reason, my friend’s boyfriend had a little bit of a hard time maneuvering with a big dog up and down hills, but otherwise dogs are welcome and allowed on trail. 10/10 recommend going here, however. Definitely one of my most favorite hikes I’ve ever been on.

One of our favorite hidden gems. Our hockey teammates would do a ski to surf. In the summer ski and snowboard at Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood (open year round) pack up and drive to Short Sands the same day and surf. This beach is such a chill beach in the summer with some good beer. Good times.

Done this hike many times. Love it.

Beautiful views at the end of the trail. pretty muddy in some spots but you can get around it. By the time we got back to the car at 1:30 parking lots and along road was packed.

The hike up is definitely worth it! Be aware that it is very muddy in some spots (like up to your ankles mud) and a lot of the trail is covered in roots so you spend a lot of time looking down. Once you hit the lookout though it's worth the effort.

Did this a couple weekends ago. Good view at the end, and a few nice views through the trees along the way. Very muddy.

Extremely muddy. Just gets worse the farther you hike in. The mud is worth the view though!

A bit muddy, but a nice and easy walk down to the beach.

2/14/2020: the weather conditions were good and the footing not so good. It was very soggy and muddy which made stepping over roots and rocks a little treacherous. We had many slips and near falls as we headed from the car to the cape. We realized too late that there is no ATT service from the road and you gain a signal once you see the coast so we got AllTrails app loaded with details. The cape view was pretty and made up for the squishy feet in our boots. If I did it again, I would take a backpack with a snack, water, and a better than iPhone 8 camera.

4 stars for the lush forest and gorgeous views. Extremely muddy today, much of the trail was basically a shallow stream. Take the detour down to the beach, very worth it!
