Did this loop today counter clockwise. Beautiful day high mid 60’s and clear. Wonderful trail through ferns and old growth Sitka Spruce. Not too steep and well maintained trail. Not sure why its rated hard except maybe the length. We had just over 7 miles total. We saw two other people , both within 1 mile of Visitor Center

The trail emptied onto the beach. Beautiful!

Great trail. Started in Yachats and headed up. Ended at the visitors center. A must run!

Best to go at lower tide! Maybe just the season, but there was no one there and we got an awesome show. Short hike, a little confusing but just head down at either point by the bridge (there are two parking lots along the hwy). Gotta get out over the rocks but be careful with the tide, some waves come in big.

Love this! Super easy and nice for all ages. Very pretty views!

I love this hike. Its really pretty for looking at the ocean. Only thing some may not like is tourist come here frequently.

Short and simple. Amazing view on sunny days.

Really pretty hike. Only thing is that I assumed itd be more flat since its so straight but it goes up and down quiet a bit. It doesn't make it difficult but some may find that useful knowing.

I do this trail when I want an easy walk with a pretty view.

I enjoy this going down the hill. Up hill can be kinda rough with how steep it is. Check the weather before going as mud can make it harder. I feel this trail is more uneven from rocks and roots on the ground. I dont find it an issue but some may.

This walk and beach is getting really crowded with tourists. Beautiful beach, but too many people if you’re looking for a peaceful nature walk. Please leave unfriendly dogs at home if they can’t get along with others.

High tide, big waves, sunset-super!

Great thank u

this is a nice climb and short - combine it with the Amanda trail for a longer stretch and more elevation. I did that to condition for Yosemite.

Beautiful, moderately traveled trail with many switchbacks up the side of a hill. Spectacular views of the ocean and lots of wildflowers in the Spring. At the top is a parking lot with bathrooms and a shelter overlooking the ocean. Amanda Trail ends up at the same parking lot from the other direction.

By far one of my most favorite hiking spots in the area.

Awesome hike! Totally worth it!

Gorgeous look out. Not very muddy in the winter, pretty steep but not too long and a good workout. Beautiful old growth trees.

Short little hike, more of a short walk, views from the cape out into the ocean prior to heading into forest with tons of trees.

Short(er) hike. Loved seeing people of all ages doing it! Slippery, obviously, so wear good shoes. Great views.

Great trail with a view.

I started at Neptune State Scenic Viewpoint. I found the forest around Gwynn Creek trail to be the best section.

Nice easy hike for our the day we arrived at Carl Wasburne State Park. We didn’t have a ton of daylight left before settling into our yurt. Great way to winter camp without needing to carry a bunch of gear.

the views! worth the trip.

I start this loop from Hwy 101 at Neptune, which is a wonderful beach with sandstone cliffs and eroded basalt. . Terrific Sitka Spruce old growth forest flanks the hills along Gwynn creek. A brief switchback climbs to Cooks Ridge trail which eventually descends to Cape Perpetua Visitor center. Bald Eagles nest atop Cooks ridge, Kingfishers along Gwynn Creek. I have seen Chanterelles along this trail as early as mid July

Lush coastal forest hike that crosses a creek. Connects to other trails.
