This is the second time we've done this hike. We went from Cannon Beach to Seaside. The first time we started at the Indian Beach trailhead but this time we started from the lower parking lot. About 10 miles total length. It's a strenuous hike with a long climb at the beginning and long descent at the end. The trail... More

We were staying in Seaside and thought we would walk to Tillamook Head's highest point and return the same way instead of doing the traverse as we didn't have a shuttle arranged. We were greatly disappointed with the lack of view points during our two hour hike before we turned around. The next day we hiked from Indian Beach to... More

Tillamook Head Trail traverses the Elmer Feldenheimer Forest Preserve starting at the Seaside entrance near the end of Sunset Blvd and ending in the Ecola State Park. There is some parking at the Seaside trailhead and information about the Forest Preserve and Trail. Probably not recommended unless you’re in good shape and health; we weren’t.

This trail is quite long and at times very muddy! Be prepared to bring some decent hiking shoes you don't mind washing later. You get to travel through some very beautiful forest but I wish there were more spots to really look out at the ocean. Great for hiking enthusiasts though!

Great little hike with awesome views of the ocean. Trail is very good but can get a little muddy in places...especially if rain has been recent.

yes, it could have been very good, but... I set out a couple of days after wet weather and it was super muddy, slippery, dangerous. So, covered in said mud, I turned around after an hour - with regret, but to stay safe as I was hiking by myself.

Started the hike at Indian Beach trailhead. Moderate hike through a beautiful forest. Several lookout areas along the trail to get some great photos. One of the nicest hikes we have done.

Went to run it but the footing was difficult for running but good for hiking, through forest, good views here and there. Fair amount of climbing and expect mud if any recent rain. Enjoyed it for sure once I gave up the idea of running consistently

My husband surfed while I hiked this trail with our dog. I started from Cannon Beach (Indian Beach at Ecola state park) - one day just went to first lookout past hiker's camp, the other day went further. Trail pretty muddy as you get closer to Seaside - but beautiful views and not too crowded!
