The trail is so cool, how the trees grow over it and make you feel like a hobbit (very aptly named). It's right off the highway and peak seasons can make parking a bit difficult (try a longer hike from the Heceta Head Lighthouse for...More

There is a small parking area on the east side of the road. You cross over, then the trail splits - the right path takes you to the beach and the left path takes you to Heceta Head Lighthouse. I'll admit, I'm in terrible shape....More

This was mine and my wife’s first experience hiking in Oregon. We are from Arizona, so we were very much looking forward to some cooler hiking, and the Heceta Head Lighthouse to Hobbit Beach trail did not disappoint! As hikers go, we are definitely beginners,...More

I almost hate to mention this place because it has become very popular. We took the dogs for a walk and were amazed at the beauty of the journey to the beach. Be advised, it is not an easy walk. It's not overly strenuous either....More

Short jaunt down to the beach, and back up. Took about 30 minutes, probably a little less than a mile total. Worked up a nice sweat. Cool flora.

This trail connects to the path system from the Haceta Head Lighthouse, or for a much shorter hike, there is a pull off on the highway that leads from the road right down to the beach. We were skeptical about how the trail would be...More

It is fairly easy hike, through a beautiful forest down to the beach. We did a loop of the Hobbit Trail and the Valley Trail, which i recommend for anyone looking for more than a short hike. The Hobbit Trail, is only 1/2 out, and...More

Though there's a sign on the north bound side of the highway, this is still a little hard to find. Look for parked cars. You must cross the highway to get to it. The beautiful moss covered trees that line the trail make you want...More

This hike is a great 4 mile hike when added with the China creek loop but you better know where you’re going. We started the trail at the beach marker 92 and head south to marker 93. From there, up the wooded trail (slippery) with...More

Just a beautiful trail down to a very private beach. Easy to park and find. Well worth the stop. You can take a north branch off the trail and visit the Heceta Lighthouse.
