Free trail. Get ready for a steep and somewhat rugged trail. There is a washout area before you get to the top of Tillamook head but it is passable. Some trees are yet to be cleared that have fallen across the trail.

Short, easy, lush, green hike with well-marked trails that take you to these enormous trees (& if you go all the way to the top--which isn't that far) you'll also get to see the Astoria Column!

This is a very nice trail in Astoria. It leads from Irving Ave. up to the Astoria Column via the Cathedral Tree.

Great on a hot day, this walk takes you along a nice wooded trail. The main event is an old tree which is super cool. Lots of incline, but not difficult.

This hike will take about 40 minutes or less. The path is well marked, watch for the roots sticking out. The trees are amazing and you will hear a few birds.

You can walk through and sit inside the tree. If you enjoy hiking, great--I really do love the woods. If you don't enjoy the journey, you may be disappointed you walked a mile to see this tree. It's just a big, hollowed-out tree. If it...More

While beautiful and worth it, I want to caution people that many reviews say it is a short trail, but it is not easy. My friend has an old ankle injury and he is now very swollen and in pain after our walk here. There...More

My husband and I walked this trail to the Astoria Column and of course the Cathedral Tree. We really enjoy walks and this one was amazing. So many trees and plant life all around. At some points it turned into a hike, but I'd definitely...More

We run down this trail from the hill (Astoria Column to town) and it was a beautiful experience. We stopped at the Cathedral tree and enjoyed very much the soft trail, the silence. There was just the 2 of us (aprox.8.30am). Great way to discover...More
