To many down trees come on Oregon State this is such a great trail but the down trees made it a bummer.

Beautiful Day to be out with Family!!

Parked in the day use lot to go on a quick hike, I was the only car there. My girlfriend and I were approached by a man at the beginning of the trail and asked us a random question then we saw him walk into the woods and stand there thinking we didn’t turn back around a minute later. Eerie feeling we left immediately. Remember you can be out in the middle of no where quick. Use your wits

This is a sweet hike uphill. The ground is soft and the forest is impressive with it's current wildflowers and stream. A mile up you choose between the East Trail (2 miles to the summit) and the West Trail (1.5 miles). The East trail has 11 major tree falls blocking the trail. You can get past them all, we did (and we are elders), but it takes some flexibility and care. The West side has one climb over, maybe two. There are other step overs along the way. A great climb that we did with ease in less than 3 hours.

The trail had multiple washouts and trees down. It was a great workout.

Easy and short trail to stretch your legs on. Once out to the rock formation there is plenty to explore, especially during low tide.

Awesome up hill workout with a few small peaks at the ocean.

Great views of the ocean.

We did this hike for the first time in eleven years. Boy has it grown up. If you're looking for a gorgeous view of the ocean, you'll get about three chances through branches. If you're after a great workout then this is the trail for you. We enjoyed it. My two year old hiked about 80 percent of it, then rode in the back pack the rest of the way. It was a lovely hike with the wonderful smell of damp to underbrush and sounds of water trickling down the mountain. 1700+ ft elevation gain pretty quick.

This trail was a nice hike if you're looking for a good workout, but we were underwhelmed with the view at the summit. All you could see were trees. There were some glimpses of nice views along the trail, but by and large, less than we expected. Would not recommend if you're looking for a hike with spectacular views.

Unusual trail... Starts out as a little single track that has some nice wild ferns. It then turns into the Or Coastal Trail which is asphalt. Along the road it has raised planter boxes with different types of ferns that are labeled. One and done for me.

Beautiful day and very beautiful beach. Red Rocks to the south and Port Orford to the north with some beautiful rock structures to photo. I met a hiker from So Korea who got burned off the PCT and decided to dot the Oregon Coast Trail as a backup. Met a hiker and bicyclist from Wyoming and Chicago as well today.... Small world!

Did this while looking for another trail in the area I saw online but was unable to find. Great looking creek... Makes me wonder if the salmon spawn here. This area is salmon rich with the Sixes and the Elk both being great small salmon rivers..

Nice little brochure in a box on the trail but it was the 2nd worst so-called trail I've ever been on. The other was just down the street. I only found the two by taking a back street in Port Orford looking for the lake. Saw the trail signs and when I see a trail sign I hike it....shouldn't have. Don't waste your time doing this one.

Driving by and saw the sign and couldn't resist another trail. Should've..... Not worth doing but but my dog enjoyed it as part of hiking all day. The bridge with the sign was amusing. First time I've given anything one star.

Awesomely beautiful area especially when the wind isn't blowing and it wasn't today. A lot of beautiful rock formations including the arches you'll see in the pictures. Exceptionally beautiful beach with Red Rocks out in the distance as well as Humbug Mountain to the south. Highly recommend this one to all!

Beautiful scenery all the way up the mountain.

A small but beautiful beach that is connected to the campgrounds located at the park. It has a fresh water stream running into it with rock cliffs on the north and south edges of the beach.

Awesome pull off on the 101 if you are looking to stretch your legs out and do some exploring.

Easy little hike. Fun to explore the rocks on the south side in low tide. Lots of starfish, crabs, mussels and polished rocks. Nice view of a blue heron as well.

Nice hike! Bring your trekking poles and water. It's a little more challenging than you would think. There are a few benches on the trail. I would recommend the East Trail up and the West down due to the grading.

This is a wonderful little hike. Take your time exploring the area...you can go down to the beaches both to the north and south of the rocks and also there is a sea cave in the hole on the large Sisters Rock that you can look down into.. And if you hike around the side, you can see where the water comes in.

These rock outcropping offer a different feel to the south west Oregon coast. Enjoy the view as you walk down the ridge line round to the beach. Don't miss the hole at the end of the trail that opens up to the ocean.

A bit rocky but nice.

Really a great find! I highly recommend walking around and exploring every corner of the area. The water cave is quite the gem

The trees, lower vegetation, running water, and steep inclines on either side of the trail are great on the way up. The summit is a bummer honestly, but just before it, you get some nice views through some openings in the trees.
