Beautiful nature walk

1 month ago

I ran most of the trail. It is only one person thin. It was short and fun. Took some great photos. Very few people travel it because the trail was overgrown in several places. you have to pay to access this trail...7 dollar day use. it is located near the restrooms by the lighthouse at Yaquina Head.

Beautiful trail along the estuary. Saw lots of wildlife including a blue heron and a eagle. Very flat, easy trail. Short and perfect for young children too. Really enjoyed it. Takes about 45 minutes to walk out and back.

Nice place to visit.

Short easy hike/nature walk. Lots to see when the tide is low. We saw seals and their pups and were told some of the mama seals were getting ready to birth. The tide pools were full of life. We spotted an Eagle and several other birds I haven’t ID’d yet. The interpretive center was nice and staffed by friendly knowledgeable people. It cost $7 to park unless you have a Federal parks pass.

Fun walk. We saw whales sea lions and two bald eagles.

Rainy Day on the Oregon Coast but that just led to the mystique and beauty. Great Lighthouse tour and guide. Highly recommended!

What great views and I it was my first time seeing a tide pool and saw some pretty cool creatures!

Beautiful quick hike. Only wish it was longer!

Breathtaking views. A must do hike. Flies were bad but didn't bite . Federal run park. $7 fee but good for 3 days. Bathrooms available at trail head. Bring binoculars to look for whales. We saw 3 of them:)

Easy paved walkway with great views. Take binoculars to look for whales. The flies were really bad that day, but at least they didn't bite. Federal run park. $7 fee but good for 3 days

Very short, quick and easy hike at yaquina bay. Went on a cloudy day and it was still beautiful. Easy for everyone, slight incline all the way up makes it doable.

This place has Sand Dunes that I have never seen on a beach before! Despite how sunny it was, it got super windy the closer we got to the water. But it was still really scenic and pretty. We didn't make it in time to explore the lighthouse, but the walk out to the beach itself is still a good consolation prize.

Short and uphill on switchbacks all the way to the top. Definitely worth it. Great views and well maintained trail.

I parked outside the park and walked in since there was a long line of cars to pay to get in. Very beautiful site. I walked all the trails in a couple hours. Be prepared for wind and rain since there are no covered areas unless you are on the tour of the lighthouse.

One of the best lighthouse stops on the coast.

This is a fun stop anytime of the year.

Not great, wouldn't do again. There is really nothing interesting on this trail and there are homeless camps in the area that I stumbled upon when taking what I thought were side trails.
