It was a cloudy (on and off day) but perfect heat-wise to go for this hike. Our two families of 7 total people (kids ages 10-12), which consisted of one family that hikes fairly regularly, and one family that doesn't, both really loved this hike....More

Beautiful view, beautiful and rare flowers, spectacular scenery. Can be bit difficult for non hikers, slow and steady will bring you to the top.

Their are a lot of beautiful sights all your hike in this trail. I would recommend to wear good tracked shoes. I would recommend to wear a sweater on a chilly day, which you can take off if you get too warm.

This is very close to Hwy 101 and both Seaside and Cannon Beach. Nice paved road up to the trail head. The trail to the top is very steep and not for the casual walker, however for those up for the hike, the payoff is...More

This is a well maintained trail that is in the forest most of the time. You definitely get a workout, especially the last half mile. When we reached the summit it was in clouds but we ate our lunch and waited and watched the clouds...More

This was a short hike because it started to rain so hard. The trail is beautiful and not too challenging.

I wouldn’t recommend it— the trail can be pretty steep, and the loose rocks can make footing challenging in several spots. The Cape Falcon trail also has excellent views and is wider and more kid-friendly, while still being... More
