We came upon the Tillamook Head trail accidentally when walking in the neighborhood. It is a gorgeous trail and well-maintained. We met a variety of people along the way and although we didn't have time to complete the entire trial, we certainly had a good taste of the beauty offered by it. Amazing tall trees offering shade and a beautiful... More

Best of the sea and the forest. Great views of the lighthouse and some interesting WWII ruins at the top. I will do this hike any time I'm in Oregon.

My son and I hiked all the way to Indian Beach. The views are amazing, The first three miles are not too difficult, however, the rest are pretty tough but SO worth the views and sites you run across!

Good Hike when you know how to use your legs and feet and are not "wobbly". Yes this hike has some dangerous spots just 1/2 mile in from the parking lot at Ecola Beach. I enjoyed the hills so its more of an exercise.

Currently (Memorial day weekend) this trail is dangerous and should NOT be open to the public. The trails are washed out in many places. Depending on which way you go the trail has multiple trees downed, the trail is washed out and overgrown. There are cougar warnings posted but not visible enough. There are old underground bunkers that used to... More

Great place to hike except that right now there are a lot of spots where the trail is washed out. Hope it gets repaired by summer.

the view is wonderful, nice place to hike and site see the coastline. You can also see the lighthouse from there and the way the waves splash thru the hollow rocks is marvelous on a nice day. The air was cool it did look like they were having some mud slides along the shore line however those area's were marked... More

We had a terrific walk this past Sunday on this trail. We only did a few miles out and back from the state park trail head, but it was worth it. The first. 1.5 miles is through the woods, up and down easy hills, along a hillside/cliff and down to Indian Beach. Well worth it. The entrance to the Indian... More

What an outstanding hike! My girlfriend in I took a long weekend to explore the Oregon coast, and have not a single complaint. We set out knowing that we would tackle this trail prior to coming down to Seaside. We started early, and expected that it would be a long day. It's approximately 5.3 miles from the trail head to...
