And most beautiful beaches, tide pools during low tide, and crowds all the time, on a Saturday get there before ten after that it gets too crowded and they close the entrance of the park. The're is a great over look of a view way out to sea. Easy hike.

Want to avoid the crowds at Cannon Beach? Head up the road to Indian Beach in Ecola State Park. It's a gorgeous beach and you won't have to be on top of other people. Very picturesque and relaxing!

Ecola viewpoint to Indian Beach is a nice hike. We are in 60s. Decent shape but not crazy fit and it was very very doable. Beautiful scenery. I recommend it.

Our first drive through the forested part of the beach cliffs. The trees and large, abundant ferns were a sight to behold. Breathtaking to those of us who live in parts of the country where we don't experience this type of landscape. The paved trails and lookouts were very accessible and not too hard of a hike. Only a bit... More

We went to Ecola State Park on a Saturday morning in September. There were not all that many people on the beach that morning. It was really cool down Indian Beach, lots of surfers and a great view of the light house. The forest that you drive through to get down the beach is amazing with beautiful pines and furs... More

The day we visited the road to Indian beach was closed for maintenance. So we parked at Ecola Point and did the 1.5 mile hike to Indian Beach. There is a beautiful lookout over the rocks abd beach not too far in to the hike. The trail is well maintained and doable with sneakers with treads although it was muddy... More

Road to park was a bit narrow, but the beach was great! Beautiful forest setting traveling into the park.

Went 2 evenings in a row to catch the late afternoon light on the Oregon coastline. Beautiful site and worth the $5 entry fee.
