We parked at Ecola point parking lot, and took the 1.5 mile hike to Indian Beach (the trailhead is at the north end of the parking lot). The views all along the way were absolutely breathtaking. From the parking lot, you have a panoramic view of Haystack Rock, and then all along the hike you have the ocean to your... More

From the trailhead going north, this trail immediately gets into the forest, steady incline at first, then some ups and downs. The trail comes out from time to time with great views of the Oregon coast and sea stacks. My 4 year old, with trekking poles had no problem and loved all the scenery. The trail ends at Indian Beach... More

Easy to get to(we were staying at Stephanie Inn), easy hike (after the first mile!), and great views! Nice and cool! The whole Cannon Beach area was a great break in the middle of the summer!

There is a $5 parking fee, but well worth it for the fantastic views of the ocean, whether from a beach or cliff. You can easily drive to a lookout point but there are also many hiking trails that are very accessible. We hiked from Indian beach to Ecola point and back. It was a 3 mile hike with great... More

Took a couple of hours to visit Ecola State Park. Did not have time to take a long hike but did visit the main viewpoint which was beautiful. You can see Cannon Beach to the south and Tillamook Rock Lighthouse to the west on a rock out from the coast. We also went to Indian Beach which is down a... More

There is a narrow, twisty, turny road to get to the viewing area, but it is so worth it! You can see the coast for miles!. Beautiful beach below. Sometimes elk, sometimes eagles. Fantastic!
