Nice hike down to the beach with beautiful views of the ocean. It's doable for kids. Highly recommend.

Don't miss this view of the wide, wide ocean. Really gorgeous and a great place to hike even in tennis shoes. The beach is pristine.

We hiked up to the point where we were supposed to be able to overlook Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, but it was completely socked in and we saw nothing but white. The hike, however, was still beautiful. The trail is very well marked and the vegetation is stunning, as are the various points where we could look out over the ocean(it... More

At the day area, there is a building with outdoor BBQ. This is a great place to buy some briquets and fire up a BBQ for an outdoor picnic. There are tables nearby with water and bathroom very close as well. As other people have said, the views of the coast and Cannon Beach are amazing. A great place to... More

Everything you've seen in pictures is better in person. The dark blue Pacific with the lighter blue-green around the haystack rocks, the mist, the evergreens down to the water and the cliffs. Very clean restrooms and numerous well marked hiking trails-all this for $5. The vistas are a total wow. Enjoyed the picnic area and stayed for lunch, took sooo... More

Even though it was an overcast day and the water was chilling there were tons of surfers, boogie boarders, and kids playing in the water. We had a great time at this beautiful park.

Ecola is one of my favorite parks because I love the long drive through the woods and the occasional glimpses of wild life.

A short drive from Cannon Beach fine dining restaurants. Beautiful view and wooded hiking trails. Couldn't find a trail map brochure. Hiking trails are not clearly marked.

A foggy misty day with shards of sun now and then led to some great views. Some excellent hiking trails and a great beach to watch the surfers and build sand castles. A 5 dollar fee to get into the park per car which a couple cars ahead of us paid it forward for the next 2 cars. But still... More
