Heard a lot about this trail and was eager to see it. The trail head parking area is on the east side of 101 but the actual trailhead is on the west side of the highway so you have to cross 101. The parking area is small and often full so parking can be a problem. The Hobbit trail is... More

It took a few drive bys to find, but we were happy we found it and stopped. It's a nice, woodsy trail down to the beach. A nice place to stretch our legs and enjoy.

Not much to it. Wind your way down the hill thru the woods. Eventually end up on a wide sandy beach. Do your thing, then turn around and walk back up.

We have hiked this trail several times and always enjoy it. It feels like you are in another world. We love the moss covered trees, funky mushrooms, quiet soft ground and the beautiful view as you come out onto the beach. Great trail for kids too. They thought it was magical.

A beautiful little hike to Hobbit Beach. The kids loved the moss covered, low hanging branches and pretending to be hobbits. I appreciated the peacefulness. Ended up at a beautiful beach with lots of places to walk and play. A fun way to spend a couple of hours.

This was so close to the house we stayed in and it was a fun way to get to the beach. "Hobbit" trail describes it well. It is an adventure!!

Beautiful hike through verdant woods that lead to a beach with few people on it. It is a bit of a downhill walk (uphill going back to the road), so it's not appropriate for everyone, and it's not the type of place to lug a cooler and all your beach gear. It's easy to miss the start of the hike,... More

A narrow winding trail through a windswept Oregonian brushwood with boardwalks across an intertidal swamp followed by a steep climb up a dune ridge. Fun.

The best way to experience the Hobbit Trail is to make it part of a bigger adventure. Park at the Carl Washburne wayside, hop on the Washburne trail and cross the highway. Journey along a magnificent forest trail, filled with incredible trees, a scenic marsh overlook, and a soft padded pathway typical of Oregon forest trails. Cross back over the... More
