Went for a bike ride. It’s a nice park, just be ware of cyclist heading in the opposite direction on the path since it’s just the right size for two cyclist in most areas.

Fun trail

Fun hike. Started at Indian Beach parking lot and did the Tillamook Head out & back. The trail is a little muddy in places but it’s a rain forest so no big surprise. I’d wear some sort of hiking or trail shoe/boot just for the added traction.

Great views and a wonderful hike!!!

beautiful and easy little hike.

Beautiful little beach and easy to navigate to. Easy hiking.

Hiked from Oswald west parking area to elk trail across the bridge, to devils cauldron, to north neahkahnie mountain trail, then went down on the west side and finished on the 101 going back to Oswald west parking area.

This hike is more moderate to hard. In the beginning the trail is tiny and there are steep drop offs where if you are not careful with your footing you could easily fall and be injured. I started this hike late in the day 1pm on 7/9/18, it was 90 degrees outside with very small amounts of shade and no wind very hot! I did not finish this trail, but will definitely be back to finish it as an early am hike when there is no heat. The trail is also very rocky. It follows through a dried up creek bed in the canyon and may lead around the mountain you can see from the road. This is not an easy hike.

Great trai

Beautiful falls and lush green forest. A short and easy two miles, but definitely worth doing! More people than I would like to have around. Hike early to get a parking spot and less peope traffic.

Very easy but nice trail to hike. I enjoyed this one very much. It has a little bit of everything here. I will go back in the winter to check out the higher water levels.

Great views despite the fog. Went on a weekday to avoid heavy traffic. The descent to the beach is steep.

Have done this and other trails in the park. Shady all the way. Parts can be muddy and slippery in the rainy season. Usually not very crowded considering it’s in a city.

This is right off 84. Gorgeous pit stop heading east.

Lovely place. The view was so worth it, would highly recommend hiking here!

lots of interconnecting tails can make this a good day hike. I'm fond of the cows on the way in.

Beautiful view of the canyon. Spectacular views of the cascades. It was on the more difficult side of things for me, especially the huge incline gain to the top. Well worth it! You can see the monkey face really good once you get down the other side.

The china creek trail is the prettiest part!!! We started at the Park at north end of trail and did the China Crest, lighthouse, and then hobbit trail and beach to park again. The lighthouse part added the burn, the rest was easy.

I can't imagine a more beautiful hike. Not so much of a workout at the pace we went, stopping so many times for photos and to enjoy the views, but worth every second. If you are at all considering this, do it. You'll be so glad you did. (But start out early, especially on the weekend--it will get crowded.)

on Trail of Ten Falls

Scenic views of waterfalls are plentiful on this hike. It didn't feel hard but one does need to be prepared for the distance. It was heavily trafficked on a midday Saturday – so don't expect a solitary experience – but that is to be expected. North Falls are worth the extra distance.

Forest is amazing, some great views of ocean on the route back. Check out trail profile a workout up hill

This is a difficult but fun trek up to a beautiful summit. The last bit is a challenge but the 360 degree view is incredible and well worth it. We saw a lot of wild flowers, berries and fungi along the way and made several photo stops as the view is spectacular at several points along the way. Bring water and sunblock, there’s a good portion out from under the trees.

Beautiful views! Very busy trail and lots of tree roots to walk over. Inclines were not bad at all. Get there early because the parking gets full.

Fun hike. Great for kids and puppies

This was a great hike with kids. It has plenty of good spots to stop for a snack and options to go farther if everyone’s up for it. We added Lower South Falls and the ten yr old twins had no trouble but were happy to rest by the time we got done. There’s also a little “cafe” with drinks, sandwiches and ice cream.

Trail is excellent for hiking with kids. Amazing views. The day was blazing-hot so bring lots of water.

Prepare to get wet! Fantastic hike along and in a creek. Beautiful scenery as you hike through a canyon, climb over a huge log jam and wade through the water to reach a cascading waterfall at the end of your hike. Highly recommend!

Beautiful trail in a magical forest. You get old growth giant moss covered trees as well as the coast/beach.

Stunning views, pretty steep at times. I started in Seaside and only saw one person for the first four miles. Got pretty crowded the closer I got to Indian Beach. Large portion of trail is very muddy. Definitely wear hiking boots (not shoes) as the mud is ankle deep in many places. So worth the effort.
