Hiking

Even though there were lots of cars, it was easy to find somewhere isolated. The main "road" on the east side of the peninsula is busier. I love how many trails cut through to the ocean side, if you take the west trail versus the road, you can walk along the beach as far as you want and then find a trail to cut through and loop back to the parking lot. Very beautiful scenery too, it was an amazing sunset and night hike.

Well groomed, clean, visually varied, and nature packed trail with lots of options to turn back earlier and biking options too!

HikingGreat!

Such a gem. Did the whole loop, not crowded at all. I went on a sunny day and the views were lovely. Miles of beautiful sandy beaches totally to myself.

HikingGreat!

This is a long walk but flat throughout. We started on the East side of the peninsula along the bay, and it's super beautiful and peaceful. We passed others along the trail but there's so much open space that we felt pretty secluded. There are lots of small trails that cut through the brush from the East side to the beach so you can cut the loop shorter going either direction if desired. We walked along the beach the on the entire West side, not sure if that is the official "trail". Either way, I recommend this for a lovely, flat walk with interesting scenery! I also happened to see a group of Elk running down the beach here...amazing!

HikingClosed

There was a concrete barricade blocking the entrance to the parking lot when I stopped by on 11/01/2020. The state park website says that the "trails are closed due to wind damage and downed trees. No access."

HikingBlowdownMuddyScramble

Very muddy right now with a lot of downed trees. I turned around after coming across a particularity treacherous looking downed tree, obviously some people have been crawling around or over it but it seemed unsafe to attempt going over it, and I didn’t want to get covered in mud crawling under it. I ended up walking further down the closed road from the parking area and found a trail that lead to a beautiful overlook.

Came here Thursday September 17th 2020 found the area posted no trespassing due to storm damage and trees down don't bother this season. Very disappointed

Foggy. Road is in good condition. Downed tree that is easily passable on foot at mile 2.4. I only hiked 2.55 miles in then turned around. Easy hike.

So fun! A bit of a scramble over (and under) some fallen trees. Also go at low tide so you can transition from the trail to the beach. So. Dang. Lovely. Even when the world’s on fire.

I only went 1 mile in today. Smoke from fires has disappeared but fog has rolled in. On nice days the views of the bay are excellent. Flat gravel road.

Hiking

Just hiked it today (9/7/20). A really fun trail! Recommend reading the Wikipedia page on bayocean before you go because the history is really interesting. We walked from the parking area up the bay then down the beach and directly back across to the parking area, which was just under 8 miles. Very flat as you can see— we enjoyed starting on the gravel and ended with sand since it’s easy to walk on. The gravel portion overlooks the bay and is beautiful— lots of blackberries right now which are delicious. As I said, the sand was pretty firm down by the water where we walked so it was pretty easy to walk on once you got down there. I wore my hiking boots the whole time, but you also may like bringing a light pair of flip flops or something in your bag if you like walking with your feet in the water. I probably wouldn’t walk long barefoot, only because there were a ton of jellyfish when we were there today. We came upon a starfish and a sand dollar! Really loved this hike and would recommend the full loop :) of note, there are several paths to cut through to the opposite side if you prefer to do more beach or more gravel. If you do the full loop, you have about equal time on each (4 miles on the gravel and 4 miles on the sand). Although there were a few people along the way and some poop here and there, it wasn’t any big deal and was much less of a big deal than we were expecting based on some past reviews. We had the beach pretty much to ourselves the whole time, since bikers can’t go there until later in September (bird nesting restrictions).

About halfway through gets super muddy and rocky/exposed roots so I’d be careful with littles. But it was a FUN hike with the wind and fog and mud, and stunning views all along the way. Big gorgeous old trees on the side of the trail too.
