A great hike shared with our 2 grandkids, ages 4 and 6, and their parents! A bit more strenuous than anticipated but the views at the Head were well worth it! Bring water!!!

I wanted to hike the easiest hike all the way "over the top" on the Tillamook Head Traverse Hike. I believe it is easier to start near Cannon Beach and hike towards Tillamook. This saves you a little vertical going up. I read the reviews here before I went and had big questions about exactly how far it is from... More

We have beautiful hiking along Lake Michigan and Superior, but nothing compares to Tillamook Head. My wife and I planned an overnight stay in Seaside while visiting family in Belfair WA. We should have planned three full days with one dedicated solely to Tillamook Head. Timing is everything, and we lost ourselves walking Seaside Beach and the prom for at... More

The Scenery at Tilamook Head is Spectacular. The Ecola State Park has many stunning view points of the ocean and the Oregon coast.

I'm not a fit person by any means so this was a bit if a workout. But I must say it was totally worth it. Mother nature and the wildlife make this a nice adventure and the view of tilamook rock once you get to the top is superb. Just don't plan on seeing it if it's foggy or rainy... More

I love hiking through an old growth forest with trees towering high above the forest floor. It's a little bit of a climb to the top but it's totally worth it for the views of the ocean and lighthouse.

We'd seen the Tillamook Rock lighthouse from the scenic overlook & it was a wonderful view, but then we decided to try the hike to see if we could get closer for photographs...and we were not disappointed! Beautifully wooded hike with such a variety of vegetation, & great view of the lighthouse at one overlook! Well worth the hike!

A definte stop and worth the $5 entrance fee (we visited this twice in two days.) A photograph from the overlook will be one of the best images you will find on the northern coast. The drive to the overlook and then the drive to Indian Beach will long be remembered in your travels.
