The trail from Ecola State Park north to Seaside has the most amazing views, but after rain, parts of it were muddy and slippery, with a tree across one section making crossing very risky for "older" folk. Indian Beach is beautiful as are the the views from all viewpoints along the trail.

I liked the big tall trees the shade from the sun, though, oddly there were some child's clothes strangely on the path I didn't like that

About 3 miles, and not very strenuous except at a couple of points, and always muddy except at the very height of summer, this hike takes you from one end of Tillamook Head to the other, ending either at a small park (Seaside end), or Ecola Park (Canon Beach end). There's a sheltering shack about midway which is a nice... More

We hiked about three,to four miles into this trail between Seaside and Cannon Beach. There is serious climbing on switchbacks. No equipment needed but walking sticks are a real help on the downhills. It can be muddy. We were in our early 60's when we hiked this, and it was a good workout. We had hoped to get to Cannon... More

This trail, which has some scenic sections, can be very muddy in places. There are logs and boardwalks in the wettest spots, but I would definitely advise you to not wear your new Nikes. Wait til the dry season to hike this trail unless you're prepared for the wet spots.

Beautiful hike along the cliffs above Indian Beach. Trail can be a little slippery in spots but well worth the hike. Indian Beach is beautiful.

Hi everyone. I am a trail runner. I have done the Tillamook Head trail from Indian Beach to Seaside and back twice. The first time was in September, so the mud had pretty much evaporated. I just got back from my second time and the mud was a huge issue. Why is there so much mud? What happens is that... More

Great hike through the woods. The age of the forest is impressive and it ends on a beach with a little waterfall. Really enjoyed this hike. Recommend also going to the nearby Cape Meares lighthouse.
