This trail is awesome but it is twisty with a lot of tree roots along the way. It is down hill all the way out to beach and uphill coming back. If anyone has heart, lung or afib issues I would not recommend this trail....More

This is a pretty short but amazing trail. There is a little elevation, but not much - mostly going over the tree roots. The hike ends at a beach if you want to stay.

I wanted to hike but didn't really have a lot of time so I chose to wander from the entrance of the trail on Hwy 101 through the dark forest and on down to the beach. It was a wonderful short hike and I actually...More

My daughter and I tried to come here twice on a Sunday, once around 11:00 and again in the afternoon and there was no parking available. We came again on Monday morning around 9:00 and it was perfect. The weather was drizzly, but that works...More

This trail is only .5 mile one way but so beautiful. Our grandchildren loved all of the places to go a little off the trail under tress and shrubs using their imaginations to create all kinds of scenarios. The trail ends at a lovely beach....More

The trail is so cool, how the trees grow over it and make you feel like a hobbit (very aptly named). It's right off the highway and peak seasons can make parking a bit difficult (try a longer hike from the Heceta Head Lighthouse for...More

There is a small parking area on the east side of the road. You cross over, then the trail splits - the right path takes you to the beach and the left path takes you to Heceta Head Lighthouse. I'll admit, I'm in terrible shape....More

This was mine and my wife’s first experience hiking in Oregon. We are from Arizona, so we were very much looking forward to some cooler hiking, and the Heceta Head Lighthouse to Hobbit Beach trail did not disappoint! As hikers go, we are definitely beginners,...More
