While hiking the Three Capes section of the Oregon Coast trail I had hoped to cross the mouth of Sand Lake at low tide. No way unless it is 2 ft minus tide. Instead I found a trail around the south side of the lake, which is a beautiful estuary. Whalen Island is peninsula in the lake. When I came to sandlake road, I turned north and walked 1/2 mile to Whalen Island. Could have been a great campsite. Osprey and Blue Herons abound. There is no OHV traffic on Whalen Island or along the the south side of Sand Lake

One of the most impressive sandstone formations along the Oregon coast. Many people fall to their deaths from the area beyond the fences. Still, with caution I was able make my way out to the point and down to the water in the breach. Spectacular at high tide with great views south to Cascade Head and north to Cape Lookout. Whales playing and feeding to the north.
Finding oneself in Pacific City requires an obligatory pit atop at the Pelican Brewpub. Black rabbits are rampant in the area

A very nice spot on the Oregon coast with a scramble atop Blacklock Point, an eroded headland with excellent views of the coastline. A bounty of Boletes if you hit it in the fall

Windy! Stunning views of the Pacific Ocean with opportunities for whale watching. A great and worthwhile side hike if you are doing the Oregon Coast Trail. There is a short but steep trail northbound to Cape Lookout State park which has a great hiker/biker campground.

Awesome walk along the shore north of Cape Lookout SP. Replete with sand dollars, seals and Sandy plovers. The endless of the spit has a great view of the three arches, a group of sea stacks in the mouth of Netarts Bay. A beautiful day hike with ample opportunity for solitude

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 connects to Cooks Ridge trail and descends into 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

Little crater lake is beautiful

The most fun way to go from Timberline lodge to Govt.Camp. Mellow snowboarding in winter or easy downhill hike in summer.

Beautiful hike. I'd give it 5 stars if it wasn't so crowded

Nice little area that gets some summer use but hardly anyone during the off season. My lab loves it because she gets to play in the river when the flow is slow enough. There was a couple of trees down but easily crossed under today. The river bar here is much longer than what we did that can be driven gets fished a lot during the salmon season which is just starting. The one that you see in my pic that they dug a trough under would be goo to leave especially for the families that do the trail.

easy hike , beautiful and clean trail.
