I visited Ecola for the first time in many years and was surprised to see the hill on the top all cleared off with paved trails to the cliff-top lookout south towards Cannon Beach. Photos turned out amazing! Talked with a couple and their mom who made it down using her walker. Another couple from Scandinavia enjoyed their brought lunch... More

Beautiful park to enjoy a walk with your family. The views are incredible and the hiking is light. Definitely a destination to see along the Oregon coast. The adjoining Cannon Beach is also dog friendly and a great place to stay.

Drove up the coast from Depoe Bay and decided to watch the sunset at Ecola before heading inland. Boy was I happy I did, the road taking you to the park/cliff is beautiful, very lush and taken over by forest. It was $5 to enter and park, there's a pretty decent sized parking lot with plenty of spaces. Although we... More

Ecola is a wonderful place with good variety to visit!! I love the lush temperate rainforest with the moss hanging off the trees!! The views from the lookouts over the beaches and the sea stacks were phenomenal!! There were some unique birds to enjoy as well. Not to mention nice views of a lighthouse.

We'd planned to drive through the park and one of the roads was closed, so we were disappointed to have to turn around. But even with what we saw we appreciated our brief drive in. Ecola is majestic for its trees - it must be a temperate rain forest. Moss seems to cover everything and the canopy of different types... More

Went Hiking here, great views, and trails were well maintained. It was unfortunate that the summit area had been closed off. I would have loved to see that view!

We reached around noon and the sky was pretty clear! The trek to crescent beech is around 1.25miles and is of medium level. The crescent beach is pretty less crowded and since the Rocky mountain blocks the wind, it is relatively less cold than on Canon beach.

We did the Clatsop Loop Trail hike from the outlook parking lot. Be aware that you have to pay $5 to park, so have cash ready for the meter. You then have two options...you can on the left and head up the trail that goes along the shore and cliffs or start on the right and head into the forest.... More
