I kayaked along this trail yesterday during the COVID outbreak. The main boat launch is closed, but if you drive further down there is a bridge and a pull out with a perfect trail/kayak launch area. I kayaked all the way up to the ocean, and floated/fished my way back. It was absolutely gorgeous, with tons of birds, an otter, deer, and seals playing on the ocean waves. I was able to pull my kayak onto the sand and sit on the beach to watch the seals for a while too. It was very busy on my way back, but definitely a fun time and easy to social distance.

The directions took us through private property. One lane gravel road. alls well and good. Suddenly I have a big *** truck in my rearview. we got trailed by this dude for a good while. until I had the chance to pull over. he rolls down his window, and starts yelling about how this was private property. So naturally I turned around and went back.

The directions took us through private property. Owners angry. Didn’t even get to the hike.

The Creek was 2 - 3 feet higher than normal. Most snags gone! We went as far as we could up S Beaver Creek

Short with awesome views. If anything just stop by for the pic. * No parking fee (that I know of). * GPS works. * Vault toilet.

blah. mainly overgrown road walking. side trails are better. no viewpoint

One of the most beautiful beaches! A pod of seals bobbing around the rocks could be seen by binoculars. Dogs are welcome and love to run here. Make sure you check the tides to have some beach to roam on.

Great little hike. Good area for kids to play.

This was a nice hike along the beach. Definitely worth the 2 miles to the rocks! Try and do this one when it’s low tide. Great for the entire family and all skill levels.

Came here yesterday and enjoyed the beautiful weather on the Oregon Coast. Been here a couple of times before and it's a easy little trail down to the beach. I didn't see any wildlife but I did see somebody hike on through, following the Oregon Coast Trail system; heading southbound.

Oct 7th. The trail is still in great shape. Its a nice easy walk close in. Only saw one other person. There is a decent incline about 3/4 of the way through. Parking is a pullout across the road from the trail and 1.1 mi from N.Beaver turn off. Easy to miss. See the previous review by Tracy H.

nice beach trail. lots of hard packed sand.

Nice easy hike. The creek is visible about halfway through the hike, but there aren’t many views on this hike. Other trails in the beaver creek wilderness may offer summits with views. Saw wildlife including snakes, toads, and birds. Also saw a huge ant hill and elk trails.

A nice walk on the beach. It can get dicey at high tide, but very pretty. Ona beach also has picnic tables and restrooms. Beautiful place to spend the day watching kayaks and boats cruise down Beaver Creek

This isn’t a hike! This is a walk in the beach. Oh well. Totally worth it!

Very pleasant run through the woods. A couple of good inclines - after the half-way turn-around a nice steady incline was a good workout for this novice runner. Nobody else on the trail on a Monday afternoon (5:30). Park your car across the street in a little turnout. Walk a quarter mile or so up the park road (walk around the gate) to where the trail begins. There are several side trails that might make for a more interesting walk/hike.

This trail was great, definitely has some incline but nothing so steep that you would have trouble, just take it slow. We only did the loop and didn’t go off on any of the other trails but there are multiple ways you could go to add more length or difficulty. Took out 2 dogs, 4yr old and 7 year and they also enjoyed it! Will do again and try the different trails.

fantastic views! must see if you are in the coast

Nice easy trail for an hour long walk. Great if you want to get out and stretch your legs or walk with young children.

Didn't realize how cool this hike would be... it's a beach walk the entire way, and then you arrive at the rocks. It's a picturesque little lagoon! We'll be definitely be going back and bringing a picnic and spend more time!

Exactly 2 miles to the rocks. Saw two beautiful young bald eagles. Would definitely do this very easy trek at low tide to take advantage of seeing the interesting rock formations and tide pools. Note that there is no access to the protected area at the end of the beach

I loved this hike, even though the climb out was pretty brutal for me. A couple notes: The trailhead is not where All Trails nav places it - instead, continue to the end of the road, there is a a parking area and the start of the trail is marked by spray painted rocks. Also, our group was carrying four GPS units, afterward our track logs agreed that the RT distance was around 9.3 miles, rather than the 6.9 listed on All Trails. As others have noted, access to the water from the main campsite is sub-optimal. Instead, take the overgrown trail left (east?) from the main campsite for a short distance, there is a second campsite and a much better place to enjoy the creek. The area itself is beautiful, and the creek was teeming with crawdads and small fish, which provided amusement for the kids and dog.

A great hike on the beach.

This is a beach walk. No “trail”. Went with very low tide, so great tide pools. Lots of multicolored starfish, anemones, sea urchins, etc. very nice beach walk with “reward” of tide pools at halfway point.

Really pretty and not too difficult. Lots of options for different ways to hike around the area. Has trees, wetland, pasture, and flowers. My dogs enjoyed it even on leash.

Awesome hike though gorgeous old growth forest. It was a little confusing once reaching the bottom. There is a large clearing with a several campsites but lacking easy access to the water. The trail degrades significantly after this but keep going until you reach the 2nd campsite for the best views and access to the water.

Started at S Beaver Creek Rd bridge and went west. A little wind on the way back with rain but the wind was at our backs.

fun and easy! it's easy to miss the trailhead because the little parking area is not marked, it's just a pull out across the road from the trailhead (which just looks like an old forest road). about halfway around, the trail becomes single track and begins a short but steady incline - still easy. very, very pretty and you can hear the ocean from parts of the trail!
