Ecola State Park has a fantastic trail through the coastal forest that I highly recommend, but it can be strenuous for infrequent hikers, and make sure you wear hiking footwear. The trail get slippery when wet (which it frequently is.)

there were lovely views from the park but the loop we did from Indian Beach Trail (2.5 ml look) was very muddy this time of the year. Wear shoes that can get muddy b/c some areas are very wet. There were some downed trees we had to get around also. It may be best to go during the summer when... More

Great spot to watch for whales, have a picnic, or just stare at the ocean. has a high vantage point to watch whales and a beach access for those who want to get up close and personnel with them.

I loved this park and all of the trails that it had to offer. I enjoyed the diversity of the terrain and the stunning views. I will be back again and again.

Wonderful hike along high trails bordering Pacific Ocean. Huge trees covered in moss. Winding trails to secluded beaches. All very accessible to Cannon Beach. Simply a beautiful part of the world.

We took a hike through the woods to an old WW2 bunked and out to a viewpoint. the view was spectacular of the light house. We went to a few... More

We weren't there at the right time but we were told that at low tide it is an amazing beach to check out... More

One of my favorite drives on the coast. It's well worth the extra time and the $5. to drive through this magnificent old growth forest and then gain access to 2 separate beaches. We usually go to Indian Beach. This time my kids hiked from Indian Beach to Ecola Beach, where I met them a few hours later and had... More
