This trail is a wonderful trail for families and people of all ages. This is a must do for me whenever I visit Florence. Easy trail and I have never see an unleashed dog on this trail.

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

Lovely and magical hike north of Florence, OR to the beach. We keep expecting to see sprites and forest nymphs. The trail is less than a mile and opens up onto a very private beach (The Hobbit Beach?).

Glad we found this listing for Hobbit Beach here on TA; it doesn't seem to be promoted as much as other places along this stretch of 101, but it's a really lovely beach, not overly crowded, with little waterfalls, tide pools, and some seriously weird...More

As someone who's not into hiking, this is an easy trek to a nice beach. It's a stroll through the woods until you get to the beach. The way back is also very easy and even someone not fit should be able to handle it....More
