I am an experienced biker and I say this hike is Definitely difficult! Hiked Nov. 27, and there was 2” of snow for all of the elevated portions. I went clockwise from Kings Mt. Trailhead- and would recommend that. I liked Tackling the hardest stuff first, but the scrambely downhill coming off of Elks Mt. was tough on my knees. There is a rope to help get up in one spot.

This was my first hike in a while. I chose this trail for the length and the opportunity to see a waterfall that I had not known about previously. I decided to go southbound on this trail as opposed to the standard west that most people tend to post. I was surprised at how icy the trails were. Beginners learning how to use trekking poles would do well on this hike. It's a very nice trail but as people have posted before you will hear a lot of off-road vehicles and gun shots from the local shooting spot at the quarry located close to the trail. It is important to know that this trail is located close to Browns Camp, an extremely active off-road vehicle use area. Now that aside the trail is in wonderful condition and I did not regret choosing us hike. I will reiterate what others have said before, it would be very good for you to download a map as this loop consists of many different trails connected together to create the hike.

I really like this flat gravel road for walking.

Leg burner. Be ready to earn this one. Nice views at top, hands will get dirty

This trail was rough and deserves its “difficult” rating. There were parts that were sketchy and multiple points I had to lift my dog (border collie, 50lbs) because of rocky areas in the trail that were too high to jump. I would not recommend this trail to anyone with kids or small/old dogs. I would recommend this trail to anyone that wants a challenging hike with rewarding views. I suggest bringing poles because there are some difficult to navigate rocky spots when going down hill. Good luck

Solid 3-star. Started noon. 2.5 hrs up (with food break) and 1hr 10min back down. No views until the top. Trail nicely maintained by the prison crew that lives at South Fork Forest Camp nearby. Met them on the trail working. Could see the ocean sparkling to the west where the sun sets at 3:30pm up top. Bring binos to see it. At no point did the trail feel sketchy with cliff edges. The viewpoint .5mi from the top, and at the top are the most dangerous spots where if you’re being wild, you can fall and die. But there’s plenty of safe room for scaredy cats like myself- just stay back a bit. The guest notebook at the very top in the wooden box looked as though someone had wiped themselves with it, chewed on it, and set it back into the box.

This trail is beautiful. The beginning of the trail is easy/moderate but as you begin getting closer to the top it gets hard! It definitely pushes you, but the top of the mountain is so rewarding. Overall there were not too many view spots until you reach the top section.

We deviated from the beach and climbed to the top of highest dune between Oceanside and Netarts.

I’d definitely say this is more moderate than easy. Lots of scrambling over tree roots and today (nov 9) it was Very Very muddy and that made things a bit daunting. The inclines also make this not a normal “easy” hike. I would do it again, but wouldn’t say it’s easy if you’re just starting out.

The “loop” is just on the driving road to all three spots. I would just drive to the spots. They have parking lots.

The Cape Lookout trail itself features a mix of cold, damp overgrowth and warm, dirty paths near the edge. While the footpath is maintained, it can be argued that it is unkempt in spots due to intensely steep roots that cross over the path. For about 50-100 feet at a time, there will be puddles, mud, and roots to deal with before continuing down the trail comfortably. This can be a problem for those who are not prepared to be hiking. Although this is rated as easy, come prepared for hiking. The payoff will be well worth the trouble.

I’ve done this trail numerous times but my favorite time of year to hike this is when it snows. Such a beautiful walk and the scenery is great! My two kids thoroughly enjoy it every time.

Great trail with awesome views on a clear day! Some muddy spots and definitely requires balance and ability to walk over roots and logs in some areas. Otherwise it was a fairly easy hike.

Great hike. Breathtaking view. Was difficult for me and a real challenge but it was worth it.

Really good, by far the hardest trail I've ever hiked. I felt like I could fly by the end though. There is a time capsule at the peak. Get out there and explore! Hang loose -N

What a great trail. Can feel challenging sometimes when doing the whole loop but well worth it. The landscape of the Tillamook forest changes dramatically and frequently. And yes, you can here gunshots in some areas and yes, you can hear bikes and ATVs. But not everywhere. Everyone's very civil and friendly anyways. The hikers trail is shared by cyclists but you only meet the odd 2-3 of them once every hour (we walked on a Saturday). Also, a few areas were a little muddy but no big deal. Good to have proper hiking boots though. I'd come back. My wife, dog and I had a great time.
