Though there's a sign on the north bound side of the highway, this is still a little hard to find. Look for parked cars. You must cross the highway to get to it. The beautiful moss covered trees that line the trail make you want...More

This hike is a great 4 mile hike when added with the China creek loop but you better know where you’re going. We started the trail at the beach marker 92 and head south to marker 93. From there, up the wooded trail (slippery) with...More

Just a beautiful trail down to a very private beach. Easy to park and find. Well worth the stop. You can take a north branch off the trail and visit the Heceta Lighthouse.

Took this hike near sunset and was not disappointed. The trail is moderately strenuous since you slope down to the beach, then climb back up again. Going down was somewhat a strain on bad knees, but all the scenery is definitely worth the trip. The...More
