Amazingly beautiful!

Beautiful and a nice walk. The trail around the upper side of the bluff is closed permanently. But still a beautiful view and you can still hike down.

A very nice hike through the woods in a rain type forest on the Oregon Coast. Trail is well kept up with lots of different sights along the way. We took the trip up from Indian Beach in Ecola State Park and ended up at the cove area in Seaside, Oregon. Best to have a car at both ends or... More

Didn't make it to the look out point to see the light house but was not disappointed. The forest and all its beauty was well worth the 60 min hike in from the Seaside trailhead. The fog was burning off so it was a mix of sun and misty trees. Left me appreciating the Oregon coast beauty. Make sure it... More

We enjoyed walking the trails, checking our "Terrible Tilly" lighthouse through our binoculars, and watching the waves crash up against the huge stone monoliths and beach.

Breath taking hike. We loved it. Certainly worth doing this hike. The views are like post card pictures. The day we went the weather was a perfect 10 but even on a cloudy day it is a stunning place.

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.
