Confusing, but nice
Mar 2019 • Friends
I wish there had been a map so we knew what we were doing! We decided to take the trail on the left. It was flat and sandy until the hill up the dune to the ocean beach. We walked up the beach a bit, found what we thought was another path, and plunged in. This one was a bit over grown and there were more "fake" paths branching off and being confusing. Turned out this was a path, though, as we found the Bayocean site post and were able to follow it out to the service road trail.

Despite the confusion of (animal?) paths, this was a nice, easy walk with pretty scenery. No bathrooms, though.

Best beach in Oregon
Oct 2018 • Couples
This beach and surrounding trails are fantastic! My wife and I went early in the morning before people arrived. This beach does not get tons of visitors as others in the area, why I don't know, better for us. You could walk this beach in your birthday suit if you wanted. Tons of dunes you could hang out at, have your lunch or what ever.

Amazing Beach - Once We Found it!
Jul 2018 • Couples
No signs, so we parked and headed up the road next to the Bay for a while before bushwacking our way to the beach. Beach is amazing - very beautiful and not a lot of people. Recommend taking the path toward the ocean directly from the parking lot and skipping the bay.

Two hikes in one -- bay and ocean experience
Jul 2018 • Friends
Although a bit off the beaten path, after finding the parking lot we were delighted with our hike. We started on the ocean side, walked on the almost deserted beach for half of our planned time, and then crossed over to the bay side. We stopped to have a snack and watch the water fowl before we headed back to the parking area. A nice combination with the opportunity to interact with others who chose to bike and some who harvested crab and clams.

A Walk Through History
May 2018 • Couples
Just stepping on Bayocean gives you a sense of wonder, with the Pacific Ocean on the west side and Tillamook Bay lapping the sands on the east side. But Bayocean has a wonderful history... in the early 20th century there were big plans to develop the spit into "the Coney Island of the West" with an amusement park, luxury hotel, shops and summer homes. Some of the buildings were constructed, most notably the natatorium where salt water was pumped into the building after being heated by a wood fire. They even had a wave machine! Too bad none of the buildings are left, but several of the homes were moved into the village of Cape Meares. Still a lovely hike along the beach and great area for bird watching.

Expansive beach and dunes
Aug 2017 • Couples
Location was interesting. Ample parking. The path to the dunes was extremely narrow. The beach was expansive and the dunes were photogenic. There were alot of dogs, many of them loose. I came because it was supposed to be a top birding spot but I didnt see many birds, probably because of all the dogs.

Another coast walk gem.
Jan 2018 • Couples
You really cannot go wrong at any of the parks on the west coast, easy parking, a vast selection of easy walking for all ages. Sunsets, waves, sand and cliffs, it just is awesome. I would imagine that you could easily spend the day here and not do the same trail twice, lots of space.

Wonderful walk along the dike road and beautiful ocean and forest views
Sep 2017 • Couples
We visited this park on the way to Cape Meares although it is rally a bit out of the way. The park is off what used to be a loop road out to Cape Meares but with a key part now closed it is now a side trip in its own right. You drive out the dike road for a bit to a large parking lot where you transition to foot, bike or horse. The dike road continues out to the end of the spit and makes for a wonderful hike with views across the bay with the ocean roaring the distance over the dunes. You can visit the remains of the old town that used to be on the spit. There are several trails out to the beach - the most fun is to the left just as you enter the woods - it winds through the trees and over the dunes to spectacular ocean views. There is camping on the beach here with spots tucked into the woods and the dunes but even on a busy holiday weekend it is very quiet with peaceful without the crowds found at other spots. It was a beautiful and relaxing walk and was well worth the visit.

Great workout
Aug 2017 • Family
We only took one of the sandy trails to the ocean. There wasn't enough info to know about the trail along the bay or even where to go. It's a 3/4 mile loop and walking through the sand is tough. But the view when you get to the top is totally worth it. The beach is almost void of people which is nice. But no bathroom facilities is not cool!

Interesting views
May 2017 • Couples
We just hiked this for the first time. We went from the parking lot out to the ocean via the first trail. Hiked the beach north to the jetty and returned on the bay side of the peninsula. Even though it was a beautiful day on a weekend there were not that many people. The beach walk was nice for sure but we felt it became more interesting as we returned on the bay side. It looked like some clamming and or oyster harvesting operations were underway. Since by this time it was low tide there were a couple people clamming. 7.5 miles sounds about right for the full length of the loop.
