This State Park has a narrow road access, first to an overlook area where you can view beautiful rock formations to the South and the Tillamook Island Lighthouse to the West, then on down to a Indian Beach. Both areas are a must see! The...More

If you do nothing else in Cannon Beach, go early to Ecola Beach. If you get there early enough, look for the elk that like to hang out in the woods just beyond the registration building. The beach is exquisite to enjoy the sounds that...More

We didn't visit on the best day (weather wise) as it was super cold and windy. But despite that the views were amazing and we still had fun exploring the areas we could. Some of the trails are roped off due to washed out trails....More

Excellent place to look for whale! We also saw elk and beautiful creeks and streams! Great view of the Tilly Lighthouse! Nice trails.

The road to the parking area is very narrow and winds up and down and over and around through rain forest. The views are absolutely spectacular. In April some of the trails were eroded to the point of being closed so hiking was limited.

We didn't know what to expect. It is a winding one way road that can be dangerous. Beautiful scenery like a rain forest. You get to the top and there is a state pay station for $5 if you want to continue on the road....More

So quiet. Just across the river from Haystack and Cannon Beach, yet a beautiful beach, park, with a lovely trail, skirting the cliffs, above the beach.
