Gorgeous views. However, very wet in April when we were there. Turned back on a trail. Drive to the park is beautiful.

We did some hiking here. The views of the coast and the beach are outstanding. There is a $5.00 per vehicle charge and you drive a little over a mile on a narrow twisting road to get to the farthest parking area. (This might be a little crowded in the summer) From the parking area there are a number of... More

If you will be in Cannon Beach this is the place to see! Great hikes, beautiful views, cool beaches & Forrest, neat view of the lighthouse and parking is only $5. Clatshop Loop Trail is a must-do! Plan 2-3 hours for some good exploration and photos! Beware, can be muddy.

One of the most spectacular views you will ever see. Don't miss going to Indian Beach, like going through the enchanted forest.

This beach is lovely and pristine. The drive through a tiny twisty road in a beautiful coastal forest is both serene and heart pounding. The views are breathtaking. Parking lots fill up fast on warm sunny days so get there early. Great surfing at Indian Beach. There is a parking fee so either have cash or a credit card on... More

How fortunate we are that a few local families back in the 30's decided to deed this glorious piece of land for all of us to enjoy. Whatever time of year you visit there is something beautiful to behold. Crescent Beach and Indian Beach are beautiful, the hiking trails are peaceful and lush and wildlife is abundant. Enjoy!

Just to the right as you enter the Cannon Beach area off of Highway 101 is Ecola State Park. It is high up on a point so you can capture a totally different set of views from there looking toward Haystack Rock or catch a closer glimpse of Tillamook Rock Lighthouse.

Plenty of hiking, beautiful views, and a chance to get down and explore some of Oregon's beach coast. Take your camera - you stand a good chance of seeing deer, elk, and a variety of sea birds. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy a few hours at this stretch of beautiful coastline...

There are some beautiful ocean views from the park. The trees and plants are very nice as well. There are nice picnic areas.
