Beautiful walking trails from above the ocean that gradually winds down to the beach. So breathtakingly beautiful and to be one with nature. Awesome opportunities for pictures at the overlook, looking toward the rock arch and lighthouse, as well as haystack rock.

What an awesome wet experience. We went on a day it was pouring rain but it made it that much more fun. Driving into the park we had to wait on large elk to get off the road way before we could get by them...More

A lot of trail opportunities, but parking is limited, and I worried about security. Got to the end of the road to see an amazing, pristine beach (seems to be an Oregon beach state park hallmark) and sunshine in November. We wanted to hike up...More

We enjoy visiting Ecola State Park. Indian Beach has spectacular views and the Tillamook Head Trail does as well. Definitely worth a stop, and particularly good for a picnic on a nice day.

Especially The Indian Beach is nice. Even if it was cold we spent a lot of time here on the cold beach. It is just beautiful.

Located within 5 minutes of Cannon Beach, Ebola State Park offers a great hilltop view of Cannon Beach, Haystack Rock and the nearby lighthouse. Plenty of easy (and a couple more difficult) hing tails all of which have great forest scenes, diverse wildlife and awesome...More

Hiking, excellent coastal views, photo opportunities, restrooms, tidepooling, bird watching, picnicking, and much more. And it's a two-fer. Visitors can also drive to the Indian Beach section. A narrow road winds through hillsides deeply forested by Sitka spruce. I didn't see any signs prohibiting RVs,...More
