This trail winds around on a peninsula. There are lookouts on either side at multiple sites of this 5 mi out and back trail. It’s often muddy in parts with some tricky roots but well worth the effort. Take a lunch and sit on the...More

Beautiful lookouts and great trails. We watched the flyers jumping off the cliff...just awesome. A bit windy and cold when we were there so be prepared with layers and some sort of wind jacket. A must do.

There are simple walks to the Octipus Tree or steep trails to the beach below. There is something for everyone. Wear good all weather gear and hiking boots. As always on the Oregon Coast wear layers for all weather.

Nice beach. Good place to picnic. There is a public restroom which aren't that common to find. Not as crowded as some of the other beaches around.

There were three trails and we only did "Cape Trail," which is described as easy to moderate difficulty. It starts off with a wide, flat path but quickly turns into a muddy, tree root filled excursion. This is one for boots! Without them, many of...More
